Charlie Sweatpants (née Schaldenbrand) is an overeducated drunken pothead from Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Midwest’s premier spawn point for overeducated drunken potheads. He is also the author of Zombie Simpsons: How the Best Show Ever Became the Broadcasting Undead and a significant (but non-actionable) number of violently profane letters to the editorial board of The New York Times.
If this thing ever becomes a real book he’ll have to write a real acknowledgments section, expressing a heartfelt but monetarily void sense of thanks. In the meantime, acknowledgment must be paid to the dedicated professionals at the nation’s public libraries, particularly those in Ann Arbor; Chicago, Illinois; and Memphis, Tennessee. If you absurdly wonderful people would just stop giving me books, I wouldn’t have to write so goddamn much, but I know you won’t. I love you all so bad it hurts.
