One of my long-time favorite online friends and bloggers Heather Anne made with the zombie meme today. I had never seen this particular meme before and while I typically shy away from them, as so many of you do, too, the scenario at hand admittedly immediately appealed to my gentle zombie sensibilities.
Not only because I’m a bit of a sucker for “horror” flicks, especially of the well-written and hilarious variety (No pun inteded. Mostly. And by “horror,” I mostly mean “vampire and zombie movies, especially circa 1980 and onward.”), but also because today marks my official four! year! blogoversary, and, well, here at kerrianne.org we believe in (ridiculously long sentences, and) coming full circle.
We also believe in zombies, apparently. Or at least, zombie memes above all others, amen and please pass the flame-thrower.
I remember when I first started blogging I had no idea what a meme was, let alone how to pronounce it. As I quickly discovered, the best of them are the webby equivalents of writing prompts. The worst of them are reminiscent of really bizarre email forwards my family sends me on a daily basis.
Thus, without further adieu I bring you, the zombie meme scenario, which you can feel free to pronounce “maim” as I always have, because this time I think it just might fit:
You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1. One weapon.
2. One song blasting on the speakers.
3. One famous person to fight alongside you.
Weapon can be real or fictional; you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.
1. A working wand
2. Thriller-Michael Jackson
Your turn. Or else: zombies.
