Rob Zombie's 'House of 1000 Corpses' Shouted Out on 'Bob's Burgers'

One of the writers on Bob's Burgers knows a thing or two about cult-adored horror movies. In a recent episode of the long-running Fox cartoon, industrial-metal Hellbilly and renowned horror director Rob Zombie gets a subtle and clever shout-out — and Zombie himself was incredibly stoked about the nod.

On Instagram, the "Dragula" singer posted a screen-shot of the episode where you can see the show's lead character, Bob, a local burger joint owner, standing in front of a menu displaying a new item called "House of 1000 Pork-ses." The fictional (though delicious sounding) sandwich is of course a pun on the title of Zombie's 2003 directorial debut, House of 1000 Corpses, which is way too gory and obscene to ever be broadcast on primetime television — which is why it's so awesome to see it pop up on Bob's Burgers

Check out Zombie's post below and see how excited he is about the shout-out.
