Post-Apocalyptic Caption Contest Winner

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and we feel fine...because we’ve selected a winner in our post-apocalyptic caption contest (rules here). And the lucky mutant is: 

6. R.Fife

Come and listen to a story about a gal named Zed
a poor mutanteer, made those glowies all eat lead
Then one day she was shootin at a thrall
And down through the sky came a firey ball

Rock, that is, moon stone, Kansas Crash

Honorable mentions:

1. Kate_Baker

In prime position overlooking the ruined Emerald City, Dorothy checked her weapon supply in preparation for the alien-robo monkey onslaught.

11. MMc

It’s about time you got back. I had to shoot Billy. You hungry?

13. Jenn M

Ya see this gun? That’s for your “last two people on Earth” fantasies.

Wow, thank you!
Safety word is "Zucchini"

There were a lot of great entries, and I am honored to have been selected as the winner.

Now, for anyone curious, I did make the other two verses, but I didn't post them due to 50 word restraint, so here they are now:

Well the first thing you know young Zed's a glowie too
Village said Zed eat naplam or shoo
Said Los Angelas is the waste for a mutie
So she loaded up her gun and she moved to Beverly

Hills that is, zombie hordes, Joss Whedon

Well now it's time to run screaming from Zed and all her kin
They would like to eat you folks for kindly dropping in
You're all invited back again to their new Bar-B-Q
To be some heaping helpings in their brains and mutton stew

Beverly Mutantites, that's what they call 'em now,
Strange folks. Y'all bring the brains, ya hear?

Thanks also to Fife for posting the rest of the jingle. Let us know when the pilot comes out :).
