On Biblical Zombies (and yes, I know it's probably "old.")
Usually I leave the Zombie posts to the professionals, but this was too good to pass up. According to Cracked.com's list of Biblical super powers, Old Testament prophet Ezekiel used his powers to create an army of the walking dead.
How did I go through 7 years of higher education at Christian schools and miss that? I swear, you'd think they'd teach me something that could actually be useful in the future.
(On a personal note, if there are any public relations people out there, I have an interview to work as a staff writer with a firm in DC on Thursday and any interview advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail is itsvintageduh-at-gmail-dot-com.)
Zombie Kickball!Eddiebear sends this along, Portland, Maine will be having its third Zombie Kickball game, where locals dress up as zombies and play a game of kickball, as zombies. Why yes, they do shamble to base. Will we see a Zombie Slublog?
Claim: Kos Obama birth certification forged
I guess this story has come back from the dead, Brian linked a Townhall blogger's argument that the certificate Kos posted was bogus, or at least suspect, and Ace has since picked it up. I'm not ready to call the certificate bogus until I see someone post a Hawaiian certificate to offer a full comparison, and really, a nice gif like this would help. I'm crap with Paint even, so I'm going to hold off on making a judgment on whether this thing is bogus or not until I see further evidence to suggest it is. Would be funny if Kos Rathered himself, though.
zombies in the news
Eric Shawn, who you may remember for his good investigative reports about corruption in the UN on Fox News, notes that the undead are still voting. I know they traditionally vote for Democrats, but there is a possibility for an unusual coalition this year as many conservatives look to abandon John McCain and vote for Zombie Reagan.
It is an interesting read, basically, the larvae are put into the caterpillar by the wasp, the larvae take control of its motor functions and use the caterpillar to defend the rest of the wasp cocoons, but you should read the rest of that article, it's a real interesting find.
Thanks to A. Weasel for our nature lesson today.
And Moronpundit reminds of this, in case any of you think all this worry about the undead menace is unfounded.
