Zombies are predators. Granted, they’re not particularly bright predators… but predators they are and they should be respected as such.
A zombie cracking open your skull to munch on your grey matter… is a happy zombie.
A domesticated zombie is by definition an abomination. In fact, it’s even more abominationy than it is in its natural (unnatural?) living-dead state. And that’s saying something.
Those of you who’ve seen the movie Shaun of the Dead will remember the scenes at the end of the movie where zombies are being accommodated into society as the latest addition to the ‘victim class’ (with Zombaid concerts to raise money for their plight) or as Walmart employees, game show contestants or even as Jerry Springer Show-type guests.
It will be a dark day when that happens, people. It’ll be the zombie equivalent of dancing bears at the circus. Mildly amusing for a second but ultimately very sad.
While it might be at first a cute idea to have a zombie as a pet, think it through for a minute.
When you see a zombie in the wild… or at the Walmarts… the best thing to do is just leave it alone.
Unless it wants to eat your brains, in which case have at it! 🙂
So, until next time… or The Upcoming Zombie Apocalypse, whichever comes first…
Be Well. And Be Prepared!
