Stuff: Fast food.

Long time readers will know that I'm kinda zombied out at this point. The shuffling corpses have had a hell of run, but I think it's time for the walking dead to hit the showers. I support legislation that would actually pay people working on zombie-themed horror projects to destroy their projects rather than follow them through, the way we control agricultural overproduction by paying farmers to burn market-deflating harvests.

That said, this is pretty boss: The Run for Your Lives 5K zombie run - a 5K run in which runners haul ass through a wooded obstacle course while being chased by "zombies." It's a combination of obstacle run, flag football game, and the opening run-to-the-river bit of 28 Weeks Late.

but.. but.. I think I see a loophole.. "Direct physical contact (pulling, grabbing, pushing, striking, etc.) between zombies and runners will not be permitted." Doesn't mention anything about shotgun blasts to the head ..

Did you write about the college (also in Maryland) that does the zombie role-play game (ie like Assassin with water guns, another common campus game) ?

I agree that zombies have jumped the shark, but at least they punched it in the face first.
