Ben recently started a blog (waiting for more posts, guy) with his friend Brian (waiting for any post, guy), and the first entry was a light piece about zombies and "Rock Lobster." Just consider the image, don't think about it too hard. So I've had zombies on the brain for a couple of days... of course if they'd been in my brain, I'd be one too.
In one of those instances of synchronicity that I love, I have come across not one but two zombie funnies today, which in turn reminded me of some other stuff moldering on my hard drive. No word on what the response rate to these sorts of personals is, but I imagine that relationships formed as a result tend to be, ummm... permanent.And judging by that woman's eyes, death, coffee and sleep are not mutually exclusive. Coffee may in fact be an important component of zombie metabolism.Which in turn suggests that leaving cups of the hot, hearty brew around might distract them from lumbering after us would-be victims. Apparently, another zombie deterrent is cold weather, so I guess this isn't really zombie season anyway. At least in northern climates. Austin, Texas, though, is another story:
It seems one or more joker(s) hacked the road sign. The text reads:
"CAUTION! ZOMBIES! AHEAD!!!"
"RUN FOR COLD CLIMATES"
"THE END IS NEAR!!!!!!!!" Finally, today's Medium Large (front page) shows that zombies have a role to play in economic news as well. In fact, now that the "Voodoo Economics" of the Reagan Era has been show to have utterly disasterous effect, Congressional Republicans are moving on to "Zombie Economics." Free Kool Aid at the temple.
