Best way to spot Zombies

If you want to watch all the Zombie threads rise from the dead, change the time period for threads to "From the Beginning" down at the bottom of the forum listing.

I thought the best way to spot a zombie was to go to a Democratic Party fundraiser?

LOL MIKE.
I was going to say "go to the DMV" or possibly "through a high power scope"

A lot of zombies manage to find their way behind the wheel on Monday mornings around here.

If there's someone eating your brain he/she is probably a zombie.

My daughter went to a talk last night given by Max Brooks, author of the Zombie Survival Guide. I wonder if she picked up anything useful. Max Brooks, by the way, is the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft.

Max Brooks also wrote World War Z a pretty good book.

I have read the Zombie Survival Guide and frequently quote it to my wife who thinks it's really funny that I do so in all seriousness. She'll be glad that I do though when the dead rise............

Just started reading World War Z a couple days ago. So far pretty good. Little short vignettes of the Zombie Apocalypse.

Okay. Here's my idea.

I dress up in a clown wig and overalls. I walk into a walmart. I throw myself to the ground, and pretend that I'm having convulsions. Then, I yell as loud as I can "HEY, ZOMBIES! LOOK AT ME!"


Then I shoot everyone that looks.

GRanted, the test may have some kinks in it that need to be worked out.

Zombie - someone or something that desires to manipulate your brain for their purposes.

Mother in law - see above definition.

Huh? I was always under the impression that the best way to spot a zombie was to simply locate and observe Kieth Richards.

Heard Richards utter a few comprehensible words a while back and we all know that's not possible for zombie. Think Keith is a carrier.

While rare, it is possible for a zombie to occasionally utter a comprehensible word or two although complete sentences seem to be beyond them. The most commonly uttered zombie word is :BRRRAAAAAIIIIIINNNNNNSS!!!

In the game "All We Need is Brain", brains are used to lure the zombies.

So I think if you have a brain in a jar, you just crack the lid and the zombies will come to you.

I am waiting for an Ammo Manufacturer to come out with some Zombie Defense Hydra-Shock in .45 ACP. That will show them Zombies.

You know what's really funny Ductape? If they did it, I'm sure it would sell!

And hey, before it's closed ... Thanks go out to the staff for opening up the Zombie forum at Halloween again. Always entertaining!

The current crop of zombies drive (recklessly) and walk (stumble) around while talking on cell phones.

Anyone here seen the Sasquatch zombies that are wanting to terrorize MT? Dumb Big Feet. Don't they know everyone in MT has military grade heavy weapons?

I feel sorry for the poor zombie feet. They are not bad eating, but must be cooked to an internal temp of 180 degrees F, to kill all the zombie virus. Just thought you should know, in case you are planning to visit our fair state.

Zombies are the ones that don't show up in your fancy new FLIR scope....
