5 Cool Things About Zombies

Hello everyone! While October 8th is World Zombie Day, we all know that October 31st is the day that we will see lots and lots of Zombie costumes all over the land. So, I thought it would be cool to focus today’s post on some cool, fun facts about zombies. So, since I know you are dying to read them, here goes!

·         George A. Romero is often referred to as the “Father of the Modern Zombie” and is widely viewed as the creator of the modern zombie cinema. He has written and directed more zombie films that anyone in history.


·         Ever heard of Zombie Ants? No? Well, now you have! A parasitic fungus, a species of Ophiocordyceps, effectively turns ants into zombies. A recent study found that the fungus can synchronize several ants to bite down simultaneously on the underside of a leaf and then die. The fungus then sprouts through the dead ants’ bodies.

·         Zombie vs Vampire? Who would win? If you side with the one that hates sunlight, you are EXACTLY right! Vampires are fast, strong, difficult to kill, relatively intelligent, and able to regenerate. On the other hand,  zombies are slow, rather weak, easy to kill, and dumb. Any wound or damage they receive is permanent. So, in a fight between a zombie and vampire, the vampire would most likely win.

·         In case you were wondering: Where the heck to go in case your country of residence is ever overrun with dead, flesh eating humans, you will need to know that the following countries are the 10 best places to escape to in the event of a zombie apocalypse: 1) Australia, 2) Canada, 3) United States, 4) Russia, 5) Kazakhstan, 6) Bolivia, 7) Norway, 8) Finland, 9) Argentina, and 10) Sweden

According to Rolling Stone , the top 3 zombie flicks of all time are: ‘Night of the Living Dead’ (1968), ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (1978) and ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (2004) listed from 1 to 3.  All of which I have personally watched more times than I will admit. I confess, I loooooove zombie flicks!


P.S. In case you are looking for a few zombie-licious ideas for the office Halloween party, be sure to check out these zombie inspired desserts! From zombie meat hands (see pic to the left), to a severed head cheese ball to a Darryl Dixon (my fave Walking Dead character) inspired cake, you will surely find something to your liking.
