Today's catch: "Mad Men" meets cult comedy, Terry Richardson meets Liza, and marathons meet zombies

1. "Mad Men" mashup of the day: Just like Arrested Westeros, the Tumblr Mad Development uses "Arrested Development" quotes on top of images from a much more somber show.

2. Bizzare gathering of the day: PETA stages a "non-protest" for the upcoming "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" movie. They're so happy that the monkeys are CGI, they are going to wave signs about it!

3. Unlikely photo shoot of the day: Terry Richardson pictures of Liza Minnelli gives the finger to the camera. Why? Because it looks cool, that's why.

4. Superman of the day: Our first look at Henry Cavill in the upcoming "Man of Steel."

That physique didn't come as easy to the actor as it did to the man from Krypton, but it seems to have paid off.

5. Zombie workout of the day: Run For Your Lives is a 5K undead obstacle course in Maryland that will really get your blood flowing, one way or another. (If you slow down, your brains will be eaten, is what I am trying to say.)
