Love zombie walks. We have them in downtown Raleigh regularly. I haven't participated yet, but really want to.

I usually associate this kind of silliness with Boston. I'm sure Bostonians will be glad to know their city isn't the only one plagued by police officers laking in a certain joie de vivre. :D

This one wasn't just a zombie walk. The local Twin Cities newspaper claimed they were making a performance art statement "to protest "mindless" consumerism."

$165,000? I'll parade around as whatever creature you want for that kind of scratch!

No, Bo, see, the parade was to PROTEST "Mindless Consumerism", not to generate it.

What if I told you I want the $165,000 to invest in craft materials and to subsidize hundreds of hours of homespun art creation?

Oh, you mean like Cthulu Plushies?
Would these be sold at DragonCon, or given away at area soup kitchens?

Soup kitchens: there's nothing like a death cult to empower the downtrodden.

:lol: To me, zombies are always a commentary on mindless consumerism even when it's not a conscious choice on the part of the participants. It's even better when the people fighting the zombies are themselves a form of mindless consumers. That's what makes Zombieland such a great movie. Well, that and the fact that it's a hell of a lot of fun.

But I guess I can accept the possibility that zombie walks aren't inherently protests. *pout* :D
