“Great!  You’re already infected.  Get ready for the best thing to ever happen to you!  The Z-Virus will spread through your whole body and change everything about you.  Congratulations!  With your improved body, you are:  brain dead, wide awake, pain-proof, and you have beautiful eyes.”

Max Brooks put the “zombie survival guide” into the mainstream consciousness, with his excellent The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead.  But what about Protection FOR the Living Dead?  Where is that definitive guide for the mostly brain dead?  Not surprisingly, there doesn’t appear to be a whole lot of literature on the subject, because it would appear the living completely lose the ability to type when they become dead.

They do, however, appear to be able to make crazy cute videos.  Here’s one for your undead consumption:

What are some of your suggestions you have for your fellow zombies?

  1. Reminds me of something my friend told me recently. He said he would just go zombie. No fuss no muss, just brains and guts. I, being someone who enjoys life, would still find things to enjoy in a post zombie world. For one I would have my generator, I would be in my tornado shelter which is quite large. About 20ft by 12 ft. I have plenty of gas stocked up, and the generator is installed in the back wall with a fan filtration system. I’d have all my gaming systems, All my movies, my wall of guns, a few axes and machetes, And plenty of food. Unfortunately that food is MRE’s but its enough to last for several months.

    All I need now is suit of armor so that I can procure more food. I don’t know why people in zombie movies haven’t donned a full set of armor. I think that would make an interesting character in case someone who writes for walking dead sees this. One bite and the zombie just lost its teeth. And good luck trying to pry that shit off. I’m gonna tape it on with gorilla tape, and slather myself in KY.
