Why I Love Zombies

I really love zombies. For some reason they make me ridiculously happy. Even the idea of a zombie apocalypse seems somehow comforting at times. Don’t ask me why…I can’t quite explain that one.

Here are some reasons why Zombies are great:

  1. Zombies don’t discriminate. One person’s entrails are just as good as the next person’s.
  2. They’re extremely focused. Once they get a whiff of human flesh they’ll stop at nothing to get to it. You have to admire that kind of determination.
  3. They don’t talk. There’s enough inane babbling going on in the world, I like that zombies don’t add to it.
  4. Zombies are clumsy, mindless and never think their actions through. This makes them ideal targets to be set up for hilarious practical jokes.
  5. Most of the time you can outrun them, dancing circles around them could be loads of fun…unless you trip and fall over.
  6. They’re not interested in money, which instantly makes them more ethical and trustworthy than most politicians.
  7. Some people just deserve to be eaten.
  8. They are really fun to draw.


Well, I’m off to watch Braindead again.

  1. My 17 year old niece came & lived with Adam & I for over 6 months, during that time I found out she has this crazy crazy fear of Zombies. I also found out my boss has a zombie escape plan set for their house, complete with climbing throw the roof and hiden baseball bats!

    I dunno, I’m not really scared of them. Your post bring about a lot of good reasons why zombies shouldn’t be hated.

  2. I fear I have no interest in zombies whatever…

    Still, under the right circumstances that’s a bit like the well-known military aphorism:
    “It’s not the bullet with your name on it you have to worry about – it’s the one tagged ‘To whom it may concern’…”
