No thanks to “life” below the ground. Air, light, breeze, trees, grass, birds or nothing at all.

Don’t be such a wimp. You’re gonna end up below ground eventually!

Yeah, let’s all take the hook-bait to look and be portrayed as complete idiots.

Announcer: “Next on NatGeo, a doomsday prepper who can’t live without a 70’s era disco in their underground survival bunker”

Ah, no thanks. Find someone else to be your patsy.

A banjo and jaw harp soundtrack, no less. I’m surprised none of the animated characters resemble Larry the Cable Guy.

While we enjoy this show, why oh why do these people advertise their preps? Talk about making yourself a well-known target for the golden hordes....

All my grandchildren have been taught: "How many people does it take to keep a secret?"

"One."

A disco bar?

I’ll throw myself to the tender mercies of the Zombie Horde first.

Fine with me. I’m glad those that are oh-so-intellectually-superior to us don’t take us seriously.

Actually the disco bar is an “inside the perimeter” zombie trap - sort of like a roach motel.

What a wonderful way for the Emperor Mugabe to have you dig your own grave. Most people don't have either the expertise nor the money to make it practicable.
"Underground" suggests all sort of problems, not the least of which is vntilation and waste disposal.
Without power most people can't effectively deal with that. Air vents must be close to the main underground area, easily found and easily cut, plugged or buried.
Let's just say that there are formidable problems even under ideal circumstances.

It's truly irrelevant whether we take you seriously or not.

The so-called "entertainment" value of seeing the ignorant make fools of themselves is simply not worth wasting the time.

My head exploded at 20secs; I didn’t make the full minute video.

As part of my preps, I got rid of the last ex-wife and television. Haven't had either headache for over a decade.

I expect I'll miss the show. ;)

“YOU CAN’T LET EVIL WIN” - oddly timely, since he did win last Tuesday (barring voter fraud, which may or may not have occurred on a large enough scale to swing the election).
