We Explain Why the Doors of the General Lee Were Welded Shut on Dukes of Hazzard for John Hodgman

Just doing our part in the name of Internet Justice.

Yesterday on The Judge John Hodgman podcast Hodgman asked the question "Why were the doors on the General Lee welded shut?"

John Hodgman Covers Glee’s Cover of Jonathan Coulton’s Cover of “Baby Got Back”

You all listen to the Judge John Hodgman podcast, right? RIGHT? Good. In case you missed last week's episode, it featured one of the greatest moments in the show's history. The show is hosted by occasional Daily Show correspondent, professional PC, knower of all things, and eccentric millionaire John Hodgman with co-host "Bailiff" Jesse Thorn. Hodgman sang the cover of "Baby Got Back" featured in an episode of Glee that was stolen from Jonathan Coulton, who was in the audience.

Martin in an interview for The Sound of Young America, and the very first thing he asked him about was a bit of internet minutiae. Namely, the fan letter that Martin wrote to Marvel Comics when he was sixteen which was published for posterity in the letters page of Avengers #12.
