Zombie quote

The zombies were like Canadians, in that they looked enough like real people at first, to fool you.

My friend "M" says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile, because your lips have rotted off.

Blood is really warm,
it's like drinking hot chocolate
but with more screaming.

OMG YOU GUYS it has come to my attention that SOMEONE on the internet is saying that my fictional 19th century zombies are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND. Naturally, I am crushed. To think, IF ONLY I'd consulted with a zombologist or two before sitting down to write, I could've avoided ALL THIS EMBARRASSMENT.

They are almost like the coyote in the Road Runner cartoons. Zombies are there to be damaged, and whatever you do to them is OK. Just like you can blow the coyote's legs off and people chuckle.

Nothing sends the message to your enemy that he has not fully understood the situation on the battlefield--a tactician's greatest sin--like zombies unexpectedly tapping their rear guard on the shoulder and eating their brains.

Zombies don't run. They don't dance. They don't say, "More brains." There is no Thriller Night. Those are stereotypes that are perpetrated by Hollywood, which I think is very irresponsible because it can get you killed.

Zombies are peculiarly scary because we think that we could be turned into one, and zombies are peculiarly tragic figures because we recognize the innocent people that these monsters once were.

Zombies are then a symbol of our own mad urges to destroy ourselves, and a terrifying portent that we might succeed.

Zombies are the real lower-class citizens of the monster world and that's why l like them.

Zombies are the misanthrope's monster of choice. They represent fear and disgust of our fellow man. The anonymous animal masses. The dumb, shuffling crowd. Them -- the public. They're awesomely stupid. They have an IQ of one. Proper zombies can't operate a door handle or climb a ladder. Toss one a Rubik's Cube and it'll bounce off his thick, moaning head. All they do is walk around aimlessly, pausing occasionally to eat survivors.

Zombies have always been smaller than life terrors. Vampires are dark, mysterious, and sexy; werewolves are animalistic and virile and sexy; Jason and Freddie are unstoppable forces of nature. But zombies are merely beautifully anticlimactic monsters: slow, ugly, and pathetic, driven by dumb hunger rather than evil malevolence. They're ridiculous -- which makes them a lot like people.

Something coming back from the dead was almost always bad news. Movies taught me that. For every one Jesus you get a million zombies.

Since zombies are not fully dead, they upset the essential balance of nature: no animals eat zombies, apparently, and zombies do not seem to decay, at least, not to the point of disintegration and reintegration back into the soil, so the food chain, or the circle of life, seems to end or be short-circuited by their existence. Zombies fulfill the worst potentialities of humans to create a hellish kingdom on earth of endless, sterile repetition and boredom.

In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets. I mean, one more clean shot to the head, and this lady could have avoided becoming a human Happy Meal. Woulda... coulda... shoulda.

Can you kill a zombie with a baseball bat? It would take a lot. A human skull is really hard. You've got to destroy the brain. You've got to hit and hit and hit. If you've got a bladed weapon, just chop the head off. Just don't step on the head because it's still biting. So Birkenstocks are a no-no.
