I find it interesting that part of our culture is obsessed with a fictitious plague, when millions die from real diseases in other parts of the globe

I guess starving kids and people dying from malaria just aren’t as entertaining because it’s not a perceivable threat to the western world

Yeah, it’s a darn shame that the ZombieFest folks are wasting all that time collecting canned goods for the Community Food Bank. What an utter lack of social consciousness.

Thanks for the “heads up”. Kind of glad I won’t happen upon this randomly in the normal course of my day.

In the case of actual pain, there is “ASPIR-aINs…”

“I guess starving kids and people dying from malaria just aren’t as entertaining because it’s not a perceivable threat to the western world.”

Or, perhaps there is nothing entertaining about it… period.

Now where were we?

Corporate zombies want CAPITAL GAINNNNNS!

Underwear gnome zombies want your HANESSSS!

I… I just couldn’t figure out any good puns, so I had get in touch with my tri-side and COMPLAINS!

Most of you know I can be pretty crotchety; I need to move in with old people zombies so we can also shake our CANES!

But on a related note, somebody was filming some zombie thing on East End Ave Sat or Sun that involved a bicycle and I was like “Pffft, what could you possibly do with zombies to distinguish yourself as a filmmaker?”

@reddan

Point taken. I guess large masses of people can do silly things and look charitable as long as they bring along a can of food. The Furries should play that angle.

It really shows the state of things when we look to a group of pretend hipster zombies to feed our hungry and assemble a water balloon fight to work against poverty in Haiti.

Musical comedy could be fun. Nothing like a little soft-shoe, a well-sung verse, and a backup chorus of animate cadavers belting out the REFRAINS.

Yeah, I really hate it when a bunch of people make efforts to be charitable while having fun.

Musical comedy could be fun.

Two Duquesne alumnae wrote an awesome zombie-themed opera a few years ago. It was successful enough that they had three separate runs in Pittsburgh.

I bet to zombies, a bike helmet is like the crunchy candy shell of an M&M.

Oh, and what kind of infrastructure does a zombie cyclist want? BIKE LANES. (Yes, this gag is showing some STRAINS.)

This running gag is something my commenting upon can no longer… ABSTAIN.

Honestly, if you’re looking for a zombie musical look no further than…

Evil Dead: The Musical

Bummed I will be out of town for this. The Food Bank is also looking for volunteers to collect goods from the hordes, if anyone wants to spare some extra time.

When beating a dead horse, it’s best to use the REINS.

[Edited to add:] I love running gag threads, even when the novelty WANES.

Wouldn’t take much effort for me to FEIGN insanity. And a nice stay at a sanitarium, doing some peaceful arts and crafts, could be restful. Perhaps some knitting…pulling yarn from its SKEIN…

Ok, I’m done now. The pun-monster has been SLAIN.

And, when coping with a zombie plague, always follow Rule 18 (Limber Up), lest you suffer SPRAINS.
