Rise of the undead!

Sorry, I've been busy working at work and at home. So, since Cindy sent me the following meme and some people (rightly) think I need to update my blog, here's a meme leading us up to next Friday, Blog Like It's The End of the World 2008.

When Zombies Attack

You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1. one weapon.
Unlimited Ammo? I want a grenade launcher. Take those MoFos out, little gobbets of zombie flesh all over Wilson's Leather and Franklin Covey.

2. one song blasting on the speakers.
Because of Cindy and our conversation this evening and in the past - "Pet Semetary" by The Ramones

3. one famous person to fight alongside you.
Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern. Because he's sexy, powerful, and historically hasn't had a problem with assertive women.

Weapon can be real or fictional, you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.

Cindy snagged from ... following back through its origins is a hoot.

1. I want a flame thrower. Incinerate the vile nasty things so the bits can't continue to come after me after being disassembled.

2. One song? ONE? Maybe 1999 by Prince? Or Surprise You're Dead by Faith No More.

3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She knows how to kick undead butt.

1. one weapon.
The James Bond Car that sprays oil. I can outrun them and since they're already unsteady on their feet, I'll just leave them laying on their sides trying to get up.

2. one song blasting on the speakers.
I'm going to go for the "We've got you Noriega and we're going to annoy the living shit out of you" model. Probably something by the Captain and Tenille.

3. one famous person to fight alongside you.
Once again, I have to go against the grain here. I choose Danny Bonaduce. He can probably fight pretty well for a while, but when the time comes, I'm not gonna have any qualms at all about throwing him under the bus.

Yay, you posted!

Grenade launcher? You're thinking too small...go with a ROCKET launcher!

Huh. Hadn't thought about superheroes... may have to follow up on this now that I'm finally posting after a year's inactivity.

And I so linked to your blog without permission in my post. So there. Pthhhhhhhppppt.

Michelle K said...

Grenade launcher, rocket launcher, don't those both have a relatively slow reload time?

I think a steady stream of destruction is what you want when you're being chased by a zombie horde.

1. one weapon.
I think I'd like a big-ass machine gun. And I'd need to be festooned with bandoliers of ammo for it. (leaving out the fact that I'm not anywhere near buff enough to fire that from the hip...)

2. one song blasting on the speakers.
Pantera - Walk

3. one famous person to fight alongside you.
I'm thinking Dwayne Johnson (formerly known as "The Rock"). He can kick butt - and he'd be great arm candy for when it's all over.

Jim Wright said...

1. One weapon? Hmmmm, I'd probably go with something I'm familiar with - the M16A3 with integrated under barrel tactical 209 grenade launcher.

2. The song? "What I like about you" by the Romantics - it just seems to fit the situation.

3. The famous person? Dick Cheney, he's handy with a shotgun, but he's old, slow, and has a bad ticker. Like Nathan said, I'll have no qualms about leaving him behind when the ammo starts to run low...

How come the Undeed get a raise and I don't?
("Not a raise, Serge. They rise.")
Oh. Nevermind.

Michelle K... Humph. Today's kids. No respect for their elders.

Michelle K said...

OK. I guess you *are* older than me.

But NOT old enough to be my father!

Michelle K said...

Tanya seems to have disappeared.

I saw we take over.

In fact, I stake my claim on this comfy reading chair right here!

(plops down)

And any chocolate ice cream in the freezer!

(jumps up to go check the freezer)

Mmmmm! Bear Steaks.

I think it's funny that you want Hal Jordan, "Because he's sexy, powerful, and historically hasn't had a problem with assertive women." Sure, those are important, but I'd think those factors would rank just behind "Because he has a magic ring provided by the Guardians Of Oa that can do absolutely anything as long as it's not used against anything yellow and he can recharge it." I mean, you get Hal Jordan and you don't even need numbers one and two. "Hey, Hal, uh, can you make a gigantic green meat cleaver that decapitates all zombies while playing every Ramones song ever through a hifi stereo system embedded in the hilt? Thanks dude, I'll be over here looking at magazines while you do that!"

I hope I don't sound critical: in fact, mad props for the Hal Jordan reference. He's the only Green Lantern you'll ever need, and accept no substitutes!

Tania said...

YES!!! Eric knows the real reason I want Green Lantern (other than his sexy self).

Once I'm bored with blowing things up (which might take awhile) I can ask Hal to take care of the Zombie situation. Then we can go terraform Mars. Because that would be an awesome thing to do, if you had the Green Lantern ring.

When I worked at The Comic Shop, we used to speculate on what we'd do if we were a member of the Corps.

Funny. That's similar to what writer Lisa Goldstein told me last December at that "Making Light" gathering when I kept offering stuff for her to eat. The difference is that she denied I was her mother.

That sounds like Zod's girfriend speaking, not someone that the Green Lantern's big-head leaders would let join their ranks.

Jeri said...

My son Zach has the best answers ever to your thing, so, I'm sharing them:

1. A rocket launcher that shoots flaming chainsaws. (engineer THAT, Macgyver!)

2. Gordon Freeman.

3. Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny by Lemon Demon.
