Fallout is a series of video games set in a post-nuclear war wasteland. Here's an entertaining trailer. The action starts about two minutes in.
If you ignore the shooty-explody action and look at the backgrounds, you'll see that the wasteland terrain of destroyed buildings and debris looks quite similar to pictures of the destruction in Alabama like this (albeit less colorful).
Discomfort with that similarity is part of what prompted my joke.
