My Zombie Apocalypse Plan

 
   In honor of Halloween, I'm sharing one of my favorite posts written in 2013. Meno Mama has lots of new followers who may have missed this blog when it was originally posted, so I thought it would be a good idea to get your halloween festivities off to a great start. Enjoy!


     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 live in Florida, home of the most notorious flesh-eating zombie stories of 2012. Zombie defense plans have been all the rage since The Walking Dead first aired on television, and after watching enough episodes, I think I'm 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 bloody 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're 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?

  1. Haha, I am rolling with you in a zombie apocalypse! I think I've watched enough movies to handle this, as well.
    Did you ever see Zombieland? That movie is probably my favorite zombie movie. Freaking hilarious! Hahaha Happy Halloween lady!!! Give those pugs kisses for me!

  2. It's only fitting that you live in my old state, because it's full of weirdness. And zombies. In fact, i worked for one, once. Oh, another story for another day...

  5. "Hone my growling, moaning and bloody slobbering skills." Unfortunately, my family might say that since menopause, I've got those down.

  6. LOL Love it Marcia! Sounds like a good plan but why not just do what Michonne did? Get two of her family members who turned, chop off their arms and bottom portion of their mouth and keep them leashed around you? :)

  9. Ha! We do #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" every time it snows in VA.

    1. I think I "met" you in 2012 or thereabouts. I was so thrilled to be a part of your group postings (and I'm still a huge fan of FOW!!).

  11. Why are they always hungry, yet zombies don't seem to have a weight problem. It must be nice eating whatever you want and not getting fat, even if you are dead.

    1. Hey, that's a good point. I guess eating other humans isn't fattening, as long as you avoid the fatty portions, ha-ha.

  12. Cover all clothing in duct tape so they can't bite through it:)

  13. Ha! I loved this! I'll definitely have to think of my zombie apocalypse plan. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ha - this is awesome! If there is a zombie apocalypse I hope that I'm already dead!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, to be honest, so do I--and not a part of the "living dead", either.

  15. Haha!! Loved this, Marcia. I don't watch the show...I know, right? Sounds like a reason I will be a zombie snack tomorrow. Happy Halloween!!

    1. I don't watch it as much as I used to--lack of time, but from what I hear it's still really good.

  16. oh good grief, I now know without even trying I am pretty much zombie ready already. Thank you for making my day, or if you prefer I'll growl, moan and bloody slobber my appreciation for this post.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love it! Thanks for the chuckle. I won't have to practice my growling, moaning and bloody slobbering skills....I think I've got that covered.

    1. Since I'm already menopausal, I think have that one covered, too.

  22. Just do as they did in Sean of the Dead. Just hit the pub, have a few pints, and wait for it all to blow over.
