Zombies: undead or just unorganized?

September 24, 2007

I’m afraid we’re going to have to award these guys the “Worst Organizers in the History of Earth” award.

See, it was an attempt to break the world’s record for the biggest zombie lurch, which apparently would have required about 900 of the living dead. But the scant 40 who actually showed up were, well, left in the lurch.

Heck, that number would barely make for a good backyard brains barbecue, much less a world record! Listen up, organizers: if you can’t even get the undead to do what you want, it’s going to be a dismal eternity for you. Meanwhile, though, it’s an enjoyable slideshow:
