Zombie Awareness Week

No, it is not marked on the calendar or anything (although there is a zombie awareness week in Australia). It is just that it has come to my attention that some of my readers are not as well versed as they should be concerning zombies. 

Since this is a matter of public safety that concerns all of us, I have taken it upon myself to do a bit of educational zombie posting this week to try to get those at the bottom of the class up to speed.  We are going to be looking at books, film, video, news and more to help round out your knowledge of the undead.    Those of you who are familiar with zombies, their spread and the various methods of eradication may consider this a review.

Please pay attention and take notes: There WILL be a quiz at the end of the week!

I thought it best to begin with the bare minimum of information that each of us should be aware of.  Of course, we need look no further than our own government for this basic information, offered in the form of a PSA (Public Service Announcement):

Any questions?

  1. When I tell my best friend there is a Zombie Week in Australia I bet she’ll book a flight for the two of us. I’m not too bad in zombie lore but will have to carefully read your posts and STUDY if I’m to ace the quiz 🙂

      Um, Dawn, better tell her not to buy those tickets to Perth just yet. I suggest reading my follow-up blog entry first.

      And, BTW, I am sure you will ace the quiz!

      Hi Steve! Well that one sure sounds interesting. I think that people sometimes forget that Romero used to zombies to comment on society. For the films that he inspired, I think the social commentary is as important as the horror.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great post. Thanks for trying to educate the public on the zombie situation.

    Investment Bankers vs. The Zombies – could make a good film. 😉

      Hi Brad! I like the idea of Investment Bankers vs. The Zombies. Definitely some social commentary value there! You may have come up with a group that might make people might actually want to root for the zombies, LOL!

      Please note: We should behave responsibly. I do not advocate the feeding of investment bankers, real or imaginary, to zombies. We should save that fate for BP execs, LOL!
