Hmm... High marks on the slushy reminiscence. But I saw the ending coming. The narrator had to be either a man or a football, after all. ;)

Re: Drabblecast 347 - Why I Hate Zombie Unicorns

As for this story, I too am completely zombie'd out. The whole genre just makes no sense from the perspective of basic physics once a zombie lasts to the point that it needs to eat. Where does the energy come from to move arms and legs if it can't digest or respirate? Too much hand-waving for me. T...

Re: Ocean Noir

In whales and dolphins, the females are called cows and the males are called bulls. Don't ask me why, because they don't have horns. Thanks, but your explanation stopped before it got the the part where the light turns on. It was a stretch to guess the trope was being evoked to indicate the dolphin...

I've said it before. I don't like Zombie Stories. I just think they're lazy. As if the world building thought train runs...
