No Title Because “Recovered From An Eating Disorder But Still Won’t Eat Brains” Seems Trite

There has been a lot of zombie talk lately. And not just on Late Enough.

I was sent an article which used scientific reasoning to prove why the zombie apocalypse couldn’t occur.

Scott and I say: Bollocks! (No we didn’t. But we should’ve.) Take this science-y reasoning: animals will eat the zombies because HEY! EASY PREY. (Who is hearing Jack Handey of Deep Thoughts say hey, free dummy? Because if you are, I love you.)

Seriously though? My dog is like totally offend by the authors’ assumptions. Zombies taste GROSS.

I was also sent this by The Mother. FYLR (For You Lazy Readers): The article states that a Minneapolis court has ruled zombies STREET LEGAL. To which I think: There goes our freeze-the-zombie’s-face-off plan. Because during the apocalypse? I’m not going NEAR Minneapolis because the zombies can already get away with ANYTHING there.

Oh and let’s not forget the beautiful zombie MRI art exhibit in Philly that I was alert by @iknowtiffany. You just need to look. Or look away.

And then I spent lunch with Scott:

 

Which prompted @milasue to confirm he (we) aren’t crazy.

But by then she was too late…

I Eat

Blackberry

Brains

Much much too late…

(zombies laugh too, you know)

PS. The title references yesterday’s post. Shifting from EDs to zombies isn’t easy. But someone’s bound to do it awkwardly on their blog. And by someone, I mean me.

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Omg did she run into the camera? Haha she’s too cute!!

    Also, I too don’t understand the Zombie thing. I tend to worry about live humans more 🙂 But I’ll be at your house if I ever see one.

  2. I have started to notice just how widely loved and featured zombies are online. I’m a huge fan of the Romero films and other things zombified. If you’re interested, there’s a site that features zombie pix and one of them from a few days back is a little 3-year old girl dressed by her parents as a zombie. It gives me hope that there are parents out there weird enough to pass on this love to their little ones.

  3. I’m famous! People, if you saw the person on the bicycle, you would agree there are indeed zombies. I will say though, I fear other people more than zombies – especially people driving like crazies.

  4. I swear that the more I come over here, the more I love your blog! Not including yesterday’s post, I laugh most of the time I’m here, and I can’t get enough of the zombie talk!

  5. the zombie-logue was all i could think of this weekend when i turned on tv just in time to watch MJ’s epic video “Thriller” in it’s entirety (i should probably know exactly how long the video is, since in some way it’s history, but i don’t… and i’m proud that i don’t)

  6. I am not a scary movie person. And I think I’ve seen 2 zombie movies – and one was a comedy so it really doesn’t count (Sean of the Dead). However, I have noticed that when life gets overwhelming and I feel like I’m barely treading water… I have regular dreams about zombies. Running from them, killing them, leading the government in zombie annihilation.
    Weird… I thought. Until I read weekly about zombies here. Thanks for making me feel normal again!

  7. You lost me at Zombies. But then found me again with Jack Handy. And then gone again with Zombies.

    Nonetheless – I wish you lived near me because you just crack me up. Even when you’ve lost me.

  8. Yes, I now see zombie things/shows/articles EVERYWHERE!!! I am addicted to the show Cake Boss and he was asked to make a zombie cake (no lie) for a zombie function. I guess in NJ there is a town where once a year they have a zombie parade? Participants dress up like zombies and walk main street. Afterward they had a party and they ate the zombie with their hands. Hummmm…what a cover for REAL zombies I say.
