Secret Subject Swap #2: Zombie Plan



     We survived the Y2K "computer crash" on December 31, 1999, and we surpassed the deadline of the Mayan calendar. But what about a zombie apocalypse?
     I am once again participating in a Secret Subject Swap with 17 other bloggers, hosted by Karen@http://www.bakinginatornado.com. My prompt this time comes from Jenn over at http://www.somethingclever2point0.com. Her question to me is: "What is your zombie plan?"
     I was actually pleased to get this prompt, because I live in Florida, home of the most notorious flesh-eating zombie stories of 2012. Zombie defense plans were all the rage last year, and after watching enough episodes of The Walking Dead, I think I am prepared to do battle. This folks, is how I plan to survive a zombie apocalypse:

1.  First, disguise myself as a zombie to fit in with the rotting rogues. I will do this by refraining from bathing for weeks, rolling in garbage and raw sewage, shredding my clothes, tossing out my toothbrush and skipping my daily naps for awhile. Of course at this point, none of my fellow humans will want to be downwind of me, either.

2.  Hone my growling, moaning and slobbering skills.

3.  Practice precision slicing of cantaloupes with a large machete.

4.  Stick wood planks down my pants in an effort to walk stiff-legged.

5.  Stockpile toilet paper, chipped beef, canned corn, beans and Little Debbie Cakes to eat secretly in my attic while the zombies are outside gnawing on human chicken wings.

6.  Build a mote around my house and fill it with zombie-eating alligators. Or perhaps piranhas would be more effective since they don't leave anything behind. The vultures in my special, ugly bird aviary will be allowed out each morning to eat the zombie leftovers. If they are too full to finish the gruesome banquet, I can always haul out the wood chipper/shredder to finish the job.

7.  Blast Judy Collins, Bette Midler and Barry Manilow songs from loud speakers to deter the zombies and make their brains explode.

8.  Douse myself in a perfume repellent known as "Eau De Zombie Poop".


9.  Trap the zombies by digging big holes in my yard and camouflaging them with leaves and branches. Once the zombies fall into the trap, I'll torch their asses.

10.  Place a large banner across my home that reads: "1st Annual Zombie Barbecue. If You're Human, They Will Come".  Then I'll sit behind the machine gun turrets on my roof and wait....


     As I go through my check list in preparation for the apocalypse, I realize all that is left is for me to slip into my special zombie gear.

     I'm ready for battle. Are you?

    3. I have to thank you, Jenn, for coming up with the prompt! It was so clever and absolutely PERFECT for me since I've been a zombie fan for quite some time now. Why do you think I keep a hidden stash of Little Debbie Cakes?

  4. I am TOTALLY coming to your house for the Zombie Apocalypse. You may want to consider merchandizing your Zombie Repellant. Although you won't be insulted if I hang a car freshener from my nose, will you? Something about the smell of raw sewage in the morning...

    1. If you are going to hang with me, you'll have to roll in the sh** with me LOL! OK you can wear a car freshener on your nose as long as you have a spare one that I can use, too!

    1. We need to be prepared--zombies seem to prefer the warmer, Florida climate. Not sure though how I feel about living in a state that is notorious for the creepy buggers. That video in my blog was filmed only 45 minutes from where I live!

  17. I think I am prepared for everything BUT a zombie apocalypse. I don't do to well with horror movies, I'm a little jumpy as it is. I never understood paying money to get the s%*# scared out of you. So, I am what you might zombie illiterate. I'm glad I know someone who is prepared. Expect to see me in Florida if I ever see a zombie.

  18. Zombie plan? Huh. Where have I been that I haven't heard of this? Hell, I don't even have an earthquake plan and I live in California! Every time I put aside food and batteries, I always end up eating the food and using the batteries.

    Thank goodness you're prepared. More importantly, is there enough alcohol for all of us?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I always end up eating all the hurricane supplies here in Florida, too--well, at least the chocolate bars. I got you covered on the alcohol---several cases of rum, vodka, gin and whiskey. It was the first batch of supplies I bought. Ever seen a drunk zombie?

  19. Thank heavens for The Walking Dead. HA!! I did a Zombie run last month. Even knowing they were just acting... I freaked. It was great!

    1. I've heard of those runs! Good God, I would FREAK OUT but I guess that's the point--scare the crap out of people so they run like hell to get away. Knowing me I'd have a heart attack right there on the course---zombies be damned!

  22. Hmm...I'd never heard of the zombie apocalypse. I'll have to add it to the list...I'm worried though, Marcia. You not only seem READY for the zombie apocalypse, you seem EXCITED about it. I am going to have to recommend professional help! :)

    1. We'll be the only ones ready for battle. Did you stock up on Little Debbie Cakes, too?

  24. I think your plan is a good first draft but it needs some fine tuning. Taking on a few of your points:

    1. I fail to see how dressing and smelling like Pete Doherty will deter the zombies. If anything, they'll find you so annoying you'll be the first they eat.

    5. If you're only packing on stocking li'l Debbies I think you'll be fine, but remember, if you stock Twinkies you may have to fight off Woody Harrelson as well. Then again, maybe you could hire him as a bodyguard if you pay him in Twinkies (***NOT*** Snoballs!)

    6. If you feed the zombies to the piranhas and vultures, theoretically they could become zombies too. While it doesn't much matter whether the piranhas are zombies or not - they'll eat any humanoid alive or undead - zombie vultures could prove problematic. They could attack *you* before they get to the human zombies. Or conceivably eat each other since becoming a zombie means cannibalism. You may need to keep those beasts on a short rope and pack a cattle prod.

    7. How are you going to keep this from making *your* head explode? Not to mention hopelessly depressed for all your lost loves.

    8. Explain, please, how a bunch of ambling smelly corpses will be turned off by your malodorous bouqet. ;)

    Other than that, I think you're good. Save a few li'l Debbies for me. I favour the Swiss rolls. ;)

    1. All good points to consider--especially the one about zombie vultures. It never occurred to me that they might turn on us and our house would look like it was right out of an episode from Hitchcock's "The Birds".
