Really. I know, where do I find this stuff?
I think I probably first saw this on twitter but I did a little research and came across, what else, the Zombie Research Society website (no joke). I love their tagline:
What you don’t know can eat you.® (yes this is a registered trademark)
It would appear that May is the month when some of the most famous zombie movies take place (think Night of the Living Dead series), so this is the most likely month for zombie awareness (um, ok).
Here are the Society’s three foundational principles (with my commentary):
- A zombie is a biologically definable, animated being occupying a human corpse. (my sister-in-law told me she knows a few people that fit that description – yikes!)
- The zombie pandemic is coming. It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when (this sounds pretty definitive to me – I am leaning towards being concerned).
- Enthusiastic debate about zombies is essential to the survival of the human race (sorry, I find this one to be a bit of a stretch – you?)
If you are interested you can buy their merch here. I am thinking the t-shirt might make a nice father’s day present for my husband.
