Animal zombies! Cheesy or just harmless fun?
Well I suppose a zombie bear would be pretty scary, but a zombie tortoise would just be plain funny. Imagine an already painfully slow creature struck down with stiff bloodless limbs. It would pretty much be a zombie rock. As long as you walked in a wide enough arc around it you’d be fine.
But what about dogs? Or cats, foxes…zombie badgers? The kind of creatures that have hunting instincts anyway. Imagine a German shepherd zombie dog chasing you down the street wanting to play fetch with your femur…*shudder*
I like to think that some animals would be immune to the virus. Sort of like rabies, where only mammals are susceptible. Although zombie pigeons would be quite funny/scary bobbing away to their imaginary rap music but thirsty for braiiiinnnsss!
What are your thoughts on the animal kingdom joining the undead?
And now, from animals to prized possessions…what do you mean there was no link? This is a post about the zombocalypse and you expected sense and logic? Pah!
What would you take with you?
Is there one thing you would HAVE to keep no matter how much it hindered you as you escaped the massing hordes of the undead? Maybe something small like a locket you could wear, or would you drag around the family photo albums, strapping them to your back and hoofing it with the extra load weighing you down?
Maybe you’d just be happy to alive in the knowledge that the real treasures of life are memories.
In case of a Zombocalypse…leave the kitties at home
Or is that too sappy for you?
Answers on a postcard please! Or failing that gimme a comment below!
