The Humans Bite Back

Post by Varda » Tue Jun 25, 2013 3:17 am

Life sucked for the survivors of the zombie apocalypse. First they ran out of fresh vegetables, then the non-perishables dwindled. When they got down to Ramen noodles and Twinkies, they turned to cannibalism, because nobody wants to eat that crap.

In retrospect, someone inevitably had to try it. But when the first survivor fried up a zombie steak, everyone was astounded by how darn good it tasted. We’re talking bacon-wrapped shrimp levels of tastiness!

That solved the zombie problem, but introduced a new one: once you’ve eaten something that delicious, how do you ever go back to bland old bacon?

You're only saying that because you've never tried zombie. I forgive you.

You know where you can eat Zombacon? Minecraft. Anyone play Minecraft?

I am going to have to ask my wife and son about zombacon in minecraft... it does not surprise me.

It makes sense though. I mean zombie flesh is an aged meat. I went to tapas restraunt a couple of weeks ago and they had really high priced aged ham. I figure that is got to be similar. Pigs and humans are similar in a lot of ways. Both are omnivores and they eat a lot of the same things. The teeth are actually very similar to the untrained eye. I am not a fauna analyst, but I can remember digging up a couple sites where we found teeth from a hog that we thought initially were human and vice versa.

Now I am going off on a tangent, but it was a good drabble. Timely too with World War Z coming out. I always love a good zombie story.
