Zombies Jumped the Shark?

Uncle thinks it’s happening. I agree. I’m noticing local teenagers putting “Zombie Response Team” on their cars. When your phenomena becomes popular among the high school geek population, who’ve probably never seen a gun that wasn’t in a video game, I’d say it’s over the shark pretty soon, if not already.

    the show ‘death valley’ is pretty damn funny though.

    The future is in werewolf fighting techniques.

    Well, there *is* an offshoot of PAFOA with their own web site and forum called the PAZRT – PA Zombie Response Team.

      pazrt is quite a crew, the looks of some of them makes me wonder if they are a collection of zombies.

    Pop-zombies have indeed jumped the shark, ironically due to the embrace of the pop-zombie meme by the real zombies.

    Zombies will never go out of style! Besides, zombies are just a metaphor for hordes of urban thug types during periods of civil unrest.

    I think you might want to change that to non-geeks. Teenage geeks have been watching bad zombie horror and discussing what to do about zombie uprisings for a long time both in rural and urban areas. The shark jumps when everyone else finds it popular. Then it is not cool anymore.

    Anything that gets law-abiding youths into anything related to guns is probably a good thing.

    There is some computer programmer in India or China right now, working on the must-play video game of the year. If you knew what he was animating, you would know the next big thing.

    I would have guessed flying rainbow unicorns that pissed money and farted renewable energy, but I’m not good at guessing games.

    God, this makes me feel old. I just don’t get it (and I’ve tried).

    Old-school shooter. Old-school journalist. Unrepentant, too.

    Love you and Bitter, though.
