Relax zombie apocalypse would only last a week

Flesh is food and the fresher the better. It’s something the zombies know. Probably the only thing, actually.

But what about their own dead – or rather, undead – flesh?

It’s carrion.

And that’s good news for the hipster tribes who spend weekends dressing up as zombies while worrying just what they would/will do if/when “Day of The Dead” actually arrives. If they survive that initial frenzy, they can sit back and watch Mother Nature do the rest.

US National Wildlife Federation naturalist David Mizejewski has put the matter into perspective, stating this planet’s fauna would deal with such animated evil “brutally, and without quarter.”

“Relax,” he writes. “Next time you’re lying in bed, unable to fall asleep thanks to the vague anxiety of half-rotten corpses munching on you in the dark, remember this: if there was ever a zombie uprising, wildlife would kick its ass.”

c. The Walking Dead, as I said, inconsistent rules that fluctuate between supernatural and scientific. Try to understand them at the peril of your own frustration.

The spiritual dead last forever. It’s the world around them that rots.

I’m still trying to figure out why they didn’t take a truck, go around to various towns and load up on barbed wire. String that stuff all over the place and take some pressure off the fences. Also, the governor had a good idea last season when they setup zombie traps; deep hole plus a little bit of noise and viola!

“The Walking Dead” is a documentary on what-not-to-do during a Zombie Appocalypse.

Cause of death for these characters is always stupidity.

I’m told that if you inject yourself with typhus, they’ll leave you alone.

Alternatively, you can chop up a corpse and smear its guts all over yourself and walk through a crowd of ‘em unmolested, just watch out for rain.

Sure a zombie might rot in a week, but he neglects to take into account that zombieness is contagious, so, if enough hosts are available, it will spread exponentially. Viruses don’t live very long either, but they can multiply a lot before they die, so their short lifespan doesn’t stop them.

“I thought it was viruses that saved mankind in Wells’ alien invasion.”

bacteria. The concept of a virus was barely on the horizon in 1898 when that book was published.
