I’m a Johnny-come-lately when it comes to zombies.
I’m okay with that, because I tend to see them a bit differently than the people who dealt with them originally; I think zombies are funny, and public tastes seem to be with me at the moment.
Sure, zombies are scary – but they’re funny, too.
People talk about how zombies symbolize the downfall of modern civilization or how we, as a society, are shooting ourselves in the foot in various ways, by a materialistic, corporate culture, or by treating various types of people as less worthy than others.
I see it differently. Zombies are change.
CHANGE IS BAD.
What causes zombie outbreaks? Science.
SCIENCE IS BAD; YOU LEARN STUFF, AND THEN YOU HAVE TO CHANGE.
Or, if the explanation’s not science (and if one’s provided), then the explanation is usually “some fool was messing around with something he shouldn’t have.”
CURIOSITY IS BAD.
The zombies come, and society is never the same again. The people you never thought would hurt you (either because they had no reason to, or because they didn’t have the strength to do it), they’re out for your brains.
And anyone who comes in contact with change, they’re corrupted, so KILL THEM TOO. Because anyone who changes is stupid and violent, and there are traitors within your midst.
