What would you do? I'd probably go to a gun shop, take everything I could get my hands on, then barricade myself in Safeway or something.

I'd put my dog in my basket, tap my magic shoes, and wisk away to Kansas.

There was actually a hilarious comic strip regarding zombie "sales aliens" taking over the world.

Though, you might not get the jokes if you haven't been up to date on tech news.

I'd take Rambo out of my freezer and let him kill all the zombies in different "flashy" ways.

NOTE: Rambo did not become a zombie since he was frozen

You know i can still get him to shmack you right?

I'd probably starve my three younger sisters, and put them in chains and trail them around as my attack-girls. Actually, when one of them was born there was a problem because she had a warning label on her that said: "Warning: Can and will attack if angered." Forget a baby carraige, we had a cage onwheels.

Seriously? I'd equip myself with my supplies of first aid kits and military armour/padding and equipment - including my dads shotgun and head in one of my brothers 4x4 vans for Hybrid house. I'd need his positive mental attitude to survive and hell, we could alternate shifts as to who is awake on watch or not. I'd then recommend to him we go and collect another couple of survivors. Maybe two better looking females. I'd then head to the armoury about fifty miles south I know of.

I'd also take my dog, she is too intelligent not to have with us, she'd put the lotion in the basket if it came down to it. And as long as I never had to kill someone I knew or loved, I'd love it!

*LOUD BASSY WOOSH* Zombie run down the street, grabbing people as they run past and ripping stringy chunks of flesh off. once they finish passing, a large, glowing orb appears. A huge, naked Arnold stands up and looks around with a non-chalante expression on his face. some of the zombie take notice and turn around to attack him. (high tech readout appears) "november 1997 skynet became aware". Arnold Turns to one of the approaching zombies. "I need ya shoes, ya pants and ya shirt" The zombie goes right for the neck. Arnold punches straight through its head, spewing rotting gray matter and blood everywhere. "But someone Fucked up, and we sent a T-1000 to November 2005" Another zombie tries to attack arnold, but he Rips off its arm and knocks it head off with it. The next one turns to him and moans desperately "Brrraaaaiinnss" arnold pulls out a custom pump action shotgun from dead police officers and puts in into the zombies mouth "Negative. Thats not my primary objective" The blast from the shotgun makes salsa out of the zombies head. An entire crowd of zombies begin sprinting at him *THUMPING BASS AND DISTURBED PLAY LOUDLY* Arnold runs for the pawnshop nearby. "litte did we know" Arnold steps out of the Pawnshop armed to the teeth. "that the T-virus could be so deadly" *Blackscreen* The crowd reaches arnold just as He gets his chainsaw started in one hand and Minigun spinning up in the other. He strides towards the crowd and begins unloading on the crowd with his minigun, Shredding the first row and punching holes in the next. *POUNDING HEARTBEAT* The crowd reaches the T-1000 Just as drops his minigun and begins swinging aways with the BLARING chainsaw. (Shot from above) It looks like a huge zombie Blender, Body parts flying everywhere followed by frappe'ed Organs and A torrent of blood.


I'd call up Arnie and have a chat.

So zombies have taken over the world. I grabbed my two shotguns, told my sisters and dad to load up and we hit the road with the little kids and mom. Being that my sisters are all good shots-unfortunately better than I am-and my dad an even better one, we loaded the elven seater van with all the ammo and guns and head for the hills. On the way I cheerfully sat in the passenger's seat and blast away zombies with a 12g semi-automatic shotgun set at full choke to get the best effect on individual targets. While speeding in excess of 80mph I happened to find a M-1 tank and a armored troop carrier full of SEALs. These excellent men expressed their need for leadership, being that their commander had see a zombie leader, at which the captain charged at while detontating a claymore and crying, "give me liberty or give me death". I, being a nerd that plays rainbow 6 and am well versed in such opperations, resumed leadership and direct the tank to clear a path for me. The tank's commander refused-he had failed to be as heroic as the SEAL's co-whereupon I being the only civilian cocky enough to, made a speech stating that we where the only survivors of Louisiana, I was going to run for govenor, deny the zombies citizenship, and my chief campaigning slogan was "no taxes or zombies with axes". I won the election by a wide margin with the 20 plus votes of the SEALs behind me. As new govenor I had the authority to order the tank commander to proceed. As a large, gelatinous mass is approaching I must cease this communication.

If zombies took over i'd kill everyone whos on my 'list' and claim it was because they were zombies.

Obviously if they're already a zombie then i'm just doing humanity even more of a favour than if they aren't. Bonus.

I've said this for the past month, but I would either...

A- Do nothing about it. A Full Scale Zombie invasion will completly change our political viewpoints, it will change the way we think. The Economy will boost and humanity will strive.

B- Find a group of other survivors and go Medievial on those Flesh Eating bitches! But of coarse, as all film makers though, you will never show a picture of your loved one to anyone, just because, as you all know, you can survive any major battle as long as you dont show a picture of your loved one(s) to another person before it.

C- Make a reality TV Show out of it, with the survivors and ZOmbies, sell it to Fox and make $$$!

D- Go to the near by Fish Market, Get a Frozen Fish and kick some ass.

E- Get in a boat, and go 200 feet off shore. The Zombies will follow you and drown.

F- Re-Enact either 1. Resident Evil, 2. Dawn of Dead, or 3. Shaun of the Dead

id grab the 14 something guns in my house, all the ammo I can find throw them into my van, grab a couple jerry cans for fuel, run to the local stop and shop, l00t the twinkies,skittles, and cokes, and maybe the deli if I have time. Then drive to the local national park, barricade myself ontop of ma beach dune, and kill the fuckers.. And if i get hungry theirs plenty of endangered animals lieing around to eat.

I would string wire across there path and becouse they are alread rotting flesh they would cut them selfs to pieces when they hit it. It's not the human zombies I'm worried about, it's the undead wooly mamoths from the ice caps that scare me.
