Mark DeBruyn’s take on the Zombie Apocalypse #WinterOfZombie

Mark DeBruyn’s take on the Zombie Apocalypse
Why is the Zombie Apocalypse so popular? Is it because we are a bunch of sickos that enjoy people getting eaten? Do we enjoy the blood, guts, gore and lip smacking intestine gorging undead? Well, yes we do, but there is so much more to it than simply getting the bejesus scared out of us. We thrive on the hope. Hope? You say, what the hell? Yes, the hope, we look around us today, the 24 hour news channels bombard us with all the crap that goes on. The internet gives us tremendously fast access to disasters of all types across the world. And yet, we hold onto hope, hope that we can survive, that things will get better, even when the world goes to hell in a hand basket. Can we be the one that overcomes the virus, or whatever it is that causes the inevitable Zombie outbreak? We feel helpless to change our world as it exist today, but if some damn Zombie comes strolling down the lane, we can bash its brains out, blow it up, shoot the hell out of it, and that gives us a smidgeon of hope. Some control over our destiny. We can revel in the fact that it is okay to take out that moron brother-in-law when he turns; that jackwad boss, who is only in his position because his dad owns the company. It is us, standing up and flipping our kilt up and waving our buttocks at the world. FREEDOMMMMMMM! So lock and load, fix a snack, and sit down and read a good Zombie Apocalypse novel. Oh, yeah, it would be cool if it was mine, but any of the crazy sickos listed here on the tour will work.
