While on their way to the secret underground bunker where the Hater podcast is recorded, Amelie Gillette and Kelly Shea, The Onion's Web Designer, saw a strange girl in an old-fashioned prom dress walking along the side of the road. They thought about offering her a ride, except it was pretty obvious that she was the ghost of the girl who had been killed on that road in a car accident on prom night exactly 10 years earlier, and they really didn't feel like listening to some ghost go on and on about her problems (ghosts are so self-centered.) They wanted to be the ones talking on and on—so they recorded this podcast about non-existent sex bracelets; Denmark's dubious tourism strategy; Tyra Banks's new shrine to herself; and how ladies enjoy doing things that people do.
