Walking Dead fans know that the best part of the AMC series is its companion show, Talking Dead. Hosted by comedian Chris Hardwick, the usually hilarious response to whatever episode of TWD has just aired puts celeb guests with producers, makeup artists and the like. This week’s guests were Jack Osbourneof Dancing With the Stars fame, rock musician Marilyn Manson and executive producer Gale Anne Hurd.
Normally the lighthearted response to such a dramatic show is good for a laugh and some thought provoking conversation about how many zombies were just killed. This week however, Manson took us for an incoherent ride, riddled with off-the-wall references and rambling sentences that eventually took us down the long road to nowhere. The rocker, who is usually an eloquent speaker and adept at showing his intellect, seems to have taken up residence at the funny farm. Reacting to misplaced references that included everything from Hitler to Training Day, Hardwick said, “Someone online is writing an algorithm to follow this train of thought.”
The Internet may not have been writing algorithms, but they sure were busy tweeting reactions to Manson’s commentary, here are just a few of them.
Many viewers began the show feeling like this.
Marilyn Manson is that annoying kid in your class who interrupts a great discussion to point out the obvious. #TalkingDead

That being said, it was kind of sad.
It's so special seeing a live trainwreck on TV as it happens. You know, like Marilyn Manson on #TheTalkingDead right now.
