I kind of really want the zombie Che t-shirt.
The dead have risen, and they're shambling past a Sarah Palin rally:
As many as 700 zombies are expected to amble up Flint Street past the Civic Center about 5 p.m., just after doors open for the Palin event.It may just be a coincidence, but then again, you don't see anyone searching for brrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaiiiiiinnnns anywhere near a Joe Biden event.
Dan Burrello, who started the Asheville Zombie Walk in 2006, said he spoke with the Secret Service and Palin advance team about the walk.“I mean, when you see 700 shambling dead zombies walking toward the Civic Center up the bridge, it would probably get the Secret Service's attention,” Burrello said with a laugh Friday. “So we gave them a heads up on it to make sure they know we're not doing any kind of protest or (are a) threat in anyway.”

"So far the turnout is more than we could have imagined it to be. The idea is just to go out, have some fun and spice up the night for some people who probably aren't going to expect to see an army of the undead walking the streets," said another organizer, Chris Hartsgrove.Thankfully, it sounds like no panicky Guidos with guns were on hand for the event. That could have been a disaster.
(On the other hand, the idea of a bunch of terrified Guidos being ripped apart by an army of zombies fills me with the same kind of glee that I'm sure alexthechick feels when a pair of thigh-high leather boots go on sale.)

Welcome to the world of Humans vs. Zombies (HvZ), a tag-like game that is the latest trend in campus entertainment. An HvZ game typically involves hundreds of students and runs 24 hours a day for days on end; dwindling numbers of humans try to fend off and outlast growing legions of zombies.They have a website dedicated to the game here. It sounds like fun, and it's probably good training for the coming apocalypse.
The rules are fundamentally simple: Zombie tags human, human becomes a zombie. Unlike movie zombies, with shambling walks and undead makeup, zombies in the game just wear headbands to distinguish them from armband-wearing humans. And they are free to sprint.
Humans ward off zombies with Nerf guns or by hitting them with a balled-up sock — a defensive move that stuns the zombie, usually for 15 minutes. The goal is to still be a live human at the end.
