What’s the deal with this Zombie craze?

Zombie pub crawls! Zombie preparedness! Zombie apocalypse! Zombie attacks! Zombie movies! Zombie games! Zombie cocktails! Zombie burgers! Zombie songs! And now, Zombie shooting? What gives?

Unless your name is Rip Van Winkle and you’ve been asleep for the past 20 years, you’ve undoubtedly experienced something Zombie related. More and more, Zombies are popping up just about everywhere in our culture. It’s a craze…it’s insane…and for some of us it’s a bit difficult to fully comprehend.

Indeed, there’s no doubt about it that Zombies have been quickly taking over our world during the past three of four years. They’re everywhere…they’re in your face…and in some ways, they seem to be slowly sucking our brains out. Could the inevitable apocalypse already be underway? Perhaps!

    I believe the zombie craze is in direct retaliation to the vampire craze. I think a lot of guys think the vampire thing is a little sissified and were forced to watch all the tv series and movie sequels and hence we have our own monster that is not so effiminate.

    Well,, for one thing, users of “spice”, “bath salts” and other similar drugs are actually behaving LIKE zombies; these days. But CDC used “zombies” as the “enemy” in some of their preparedness materials because it’s too politically incorrect to just SAY Muslims, and those are the enemies against whom those are actually generally aimed these days. As for Hollywood; I view those as COMEDIES, because you CAN’T take them seriously, if you know anything about human physiology! However, as they’re usually not really amusing either, I seldom watch them and don’t really enjoy them. As for “monsters”, most of those are going completely unrecognized except by law enforcement personnel and their victims these days; because they usually don’t actually LOOK like monsters!
