Your doctor is going to throw a bunch […]

Aquaman ain’t sweatin’ the zombie apocalypse! I’m pretty sure that zombies can’t swim. Seems to me that due to the state of decomposition, most zombies would at best be able to float near the surface and very slowly tread water, but no way are they making it to the ocean floor to give Aquaman a […]
