Title: ZOMBIES!
Post by: punatic on May 18, 2011, 06:03:35 pm
The Centers for Disease Control warns of a:

Zombie Apocalypse (http://blogs.cdc.gov/publichealthmatters/2011/05/preparedness-101-zombie-apocalypse/)

Zombie Apocalypse, I'm prepared! Are you?  ;)

That is pretty cool how they incorporated pop-culture and disaster awareness.  :P

Add “Cricket bat” to list.

Change plan to:
1) Go ’round mums.
2) Grab Liz.
3) Head over to the Winchester.
4) Have a cold pint.
5) Wait for this whole thing to blow over.

How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

Nope, can't figure out a good way to get it there.  Next year, though, our club intends to have a booth for club night and there's discussion of putting a band together for it!  LOOK OUT!   ;D

Yeah, the word got out, when several news outlets linked to the page.  The server is getting slammed.  I go to the page, then open anther page to surf with and give the slow zombie page a few minutes to load, then go back to it.

Pretty funny stuff.  The CDC talkng about preparing for a zombie attack.

I saw this garden sculpture yesterday. I don't think the wife would go for it, but I thought it was pretty funny.

All we want to do it is eat your brain
We're not unreasonable,
I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes...

That is hilarious Denny!

Yeah, it's a great song.  I love that it's in the context of 2 guys talking in the office.

This has become a big hit with my son and me.  We often look at each other, smile, and break into the chorus. 

We are going to Boy Scouts summer camp in a few weeks.  During the camp all of the troups attending the camp assemble at the firebowl one evening to share stories, skits, songs, etc.  This year for firebowl there's a good chance Troup 65 will be performing Re: Your Brain.  Several of the boys play uke and guitar. The chorus will make a great sing-along for everyone.  It ought to be a hoot!  (zombies are quite popular with the boys these days)

Thanks for turning us on to this classic Denny!

I'm SO proud!  If I could figure out how to get my ukulele to NHC without trashing it, I'd be terrorizing people in the hallways as I strolled around playing it!
