Black Saturday is the name used to refer to the nuclear exchange between the United States and China at the beginning of Doggieboy's serial fic-in-progress Apocalyptic Daria. The term was first used during a radio broadcast by the U.S. military to inform citizens on the East Coast of ongoing military operations in the aftermath of the nuclear attacks and the resulting civil unrest.
