I know how you feel, hungry zombie!

A zombie comic

Zombie 1 says: "I've always thought of Zombies as representing a pervasive American Xenophobia."

Zombie 2: "Really? I've always considered us a metaphor for runaway consumerism."

Zombie 3: "There's something to the idea that we illustrate the tenuous line between civilization and barbarism!"

Zombie 4: "I really feel stupid for ordering brains now."

I’ve felt this way quite often recently, since I’ve had to Google several of the subjects that have popped up in recent conversations with some of my ├╝ber brilliant friends.

This is also why I loved the iTunes U podcast from the University of Alabama: “Zombies! The Living Dead in Literature, Film and Culture”. I could actually have a very similar conversation in which I could put my two cents in. Is it a form of intelligent conversation? Well… That depends on whether you’re a zombie/pop culture fanatic or not. (I’m voting yes.)
