Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia brawl with Joss Whedon, in the Internet way

It all started with Joss Whedon, best known for many years as the man who brought you Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Whedon's become more well-known for his blockbuster hit The Avengers, but seems is worried that Sleepwalk with Me, the new movie that comedian Mike Birbiglia and Ira Glass wrote together, might take a run for his third-highest-grossing-film-of-all-time-title.

Birbiglia and Glass then responded to Whedon's vitriol by laying out a complex plan to get their movie to make money than The Avengers.

In Chicago, Sleepwalk with Me plays at the Music Box. Don't live in Chicago? Find a way to see the movie.
