Prepare for the impending zombie apocolypse

My nephews' birthdays were last week and I made them a "zombie box." In it, I put DVDs of Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead ('78 and '04), and Shaun of the Dead. I also put in a copy of the Dawn score CD (composed by Goblin) and the Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead. After all, I've got to maintain my rep as the Cool Uncle.

Rule One: Aim for the head.

Before I packaged it up, I leafed through the book and found it to be pretty interesting. And for a book that seems to be a parody of those Worst Case Scenario-type tomes, it is pretty thorough and doesn't seem tossed-off. I requested that my nephews bring it to the beach (when I see them next) so I'll actually be able to read it. I hope that they remember.

Trivia: It is written by Mel Brooks' son.

Gosh, you have a thing for this zombie thing. Are you a necropheliac?

Nope. I like 'em breathing. But it is Zombie Week here at Micah World, so expect mucho zombie-related posts.
