A new look at things.
Longtime fans of this blog are well aware of my fascination with zombies. It isn't that I love the living dead or anything, it's just that they present a fascinating tactical and strategic dilemma. How do you combat an enemy that is almost immune to damage and can easily convert your soldiers into its own? If you answered "atomic weaponry" you're almost correct- I favor fuel-air explosives myself*- but despite the NRA's best efforts, most homes do not have their own thermonuclear arsenal. Drat.
What I usually don't imagine, however, is what the whole human-zombie rivalry must seem like from the zombie's side of things. Fortunately, Jonathon Coulton has saved me the trouble, with his fantastic song that helps us really get inside the zombie's head. There's even a fantastic music video version:
* Almost all of the boom with none of the nasty radiation. Fuel-air explosives: when it absolutely, positively, has to be obliterated today.
