Would have made for a great cooking segment.

"So, Steve, let me show you how to roast a groundhog while running from the zombie apocalypse."

Civil Authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves

During the Steve Wilkos show?   I am guessing 80% of the audience actually believed it.

Good news, though.  They've risen from their graves to rescue my daughter.

Maybe you'll be even more tired of it when the Zombies are feasting on your flesh.

I don't think Joan Crawford rose from the grave to "rescue" your daughter - unless it's from wire hangers.

It was a just a hoax, everyone. Remain calm. All is well.

But are they the running zombies or the slow shambling ones? And the ones from Brad Pitt's WWZ do not count. Zombies do not swarm like locusts.

You didn't really read the book, did you.

One zed makes a moan. Another zed a mile away hears it and moans. Soon you have a full on horde converging on you.

I find the idea of this amusing, but it only takes one or two in the audience that's already close to a mental break to freak out and grab a shotgun... Emergency broadcast/notification interference is one thing I can't condone messing with. Kind of like calling in a bomb threat to distract from a bank robbery (happened locally a couple of weeks ago).

FTFA:

"the dead of Great Falls, Montana are still dead and plan to stay that way for some time, something I think we can all agree is good news. "

How long is "some time"?  Are they suggesting that this could really happen after "some time"?

A few of you get the reference.

For those that don't.

I've read the book. But obviously you haven't seen the movie previews, have you smartass? In one scene the zombies literally flow up a wall that is hundreds of feet high, and they flow up like water.. I'm specifically talking about how they move in the film previews, not the book.
 
2013-02-11 09:34:56 PM  
Montana is already a red state so the zombies needn't have bothered.

1. Hack the station's server. (Don't get caught.)
2. Offer your skills to the station as a "security consultant."
3. Job security - PROFIT!

Pretty good, but not as good as the old school captain midnight. Still have a VHS of that from back when it happened in the 80's

That happens in the book too. See the battle description near the end of the book where they are forced to form a Singh Square, and then have a bulldozer push them out of the walls of bodies. The habit of zombies crawling over their dead to climb over fortifications and walls is described not only in World War Z, but also in the Zombie Survival Guide.

Better headline, et cetera.

Dunno why I continue to submit links. Still wonder if a $60/year TF would help.

The audiobook version makes that so much more awesome, because it's a line said by none other than Luke farking Skywalker himself.

I'm more concerned with Cthulhu than zombies. I have one of his plushie children I am holding hostage for bargaining purposes. I let it sleep on my bed so it will put in a good word for me with dear ol' dad.

Came for Anthrax reference leaving happy to go kick some Grammy bootie for screwing them out of a trophy.  Worship music is the Best metal album since The System has Failed.  IMHO.  Finally got to see them live after 25 years.

People biatch about the "wave of flesh" aesthetic, but I love it because it is a refreshing change.

/No, I've not read the book
//Because it is yet another addition to the zombie genre.
///And it is a farking book. Books are for things that aren't mindless.

I was a little disappointed by the audio book for cutting so many what I felt were crucial scenes - hell, that book could have gone another hour on CD, no problem. But Hammill was indeed the shiat as Todd Wainio, and I would loved to have seen him portray the character in the film. He's only what, maybe a decade off the character's age as written?

Instead, we're getting a masturbatory ego gratifier from Brad Pitt, which evidently doesn't even include the Wainio character, with fast swarming zombies that look like angry biscuits and gravy.

Goddamitsomuch.

This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency.

That's JUST what they want you to think.

Say it did.  What does that get you?  You can buy a lot of beer for $60.
