Maybe they've been reading too much of The Zombie Survival Guide. Which, incidentally, I am picking up from a bookshop tomorrow, after having ordered it last week. It's scarily competently written and darkly humorous.


You will love it Q.

Cant wait for World War Z to come out. Have you read that? Loved it too.


I've read both. And by coming out, you mean the movie. It's not until next year.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

:lol: :lol: But I agree with Del about ironing....a necessary evil to be undertaken only if one is meeting the Queen and has no time to shop for a new frock :lol:
According to the movies zombies move really slowly so I'd have a speed advantage there.....hmm? I also have a reserve poker, two pairs of coal tongs and a brush......aha!! :D

I always just take my clothes directly out of the dryer and put them on >.>

I also try to buy wrinkle resistant clothing when possible.

Janet.... I hesitate to ask what you intend to do to a zombie with a pair of coal tongs and a brush! :lol: :lol:

Well, the coal tongs would be used to pluck eyeballs out, but I agree on the brush. That is definitely a noodle implement. :think:

This won't help you when the zombies are coming up your path :snooty:

Uh, actually, wrinkles in clothing give more surfaces for the zombies to grab onto. So does long hair. Max Brooks says so.

Long hair yes, but a wrinkled shirt is more likely to sit closer to the body. An ironed shirt will hang loose, thereby providing an easier handhold.

Zombies want brains, right? Would they find any in Westboro Church? :lol:
