Rules of the children’s game ‘Zombie’ as screamed out by my neighbour’s children while I was trying to write

Filed under: personal — danylmc @ 1:42 pm
  1. Zombie is a virus and you get the virus if you are dead by a zombie.
  2. When you are a zombie you have to go ‘Muuuaaaaarrrr’.
  3. Zombies cannot run fast when there are more than one because that is not fair
  4. Zombies cannot go after midnight
  5. If you stand very still some zombies cannot see you
  6. If you just scream the zombies will know and they will get you
  7. Zombies cannot climb (disputed)


  1. Is this some kind of metaphor for the public service under National?

  2. geddoudahere, that sounds like a Labour party subcommittee debating candidate selection criteria.

  3. How apt the top two comments miss the point that it is about a children’s game.

  4. Not all that is why I made the comment I did. Shame you couldn’t make the leap.

  5. Speaking of Zombies going ‘Muuuuaaaaar’, did anyone see the Q&A interview Susan Woods did with Dave Shearer? (transcript posted on KiwiBlogh by Farrar) I actually felt sorry for Shearer, Woods was so biased she could be paid by the National Party Research Unit.

    Perhaps this is a cunning plan by Mallard & chums – set Shearer up with right-wing ranters that talk over him and defame him until the public feel sorry for the hedgehog in the headlights… Could work. I felt sorry for him, and I despise Labour.

    Sorry for the threadjack, but that’s what happens when you let Zombies loose in your blog 😉

  7. Did their game suggest any resolution to the rifle-vs-shotgun issue?

  8. 8. You get a cricket bat to use if your name is Shaun.

  9. According to Scott Westerfeld, it’s *vampirism* that is cause by a virus.

  10. 4.Zombies cannot go after midnight

    Zombies or not, only a bad parent lets their kids play outside after midnight.

  12. Its funnier if you replace “zombie” with “knucklehead”.

  13. Funnier still if you replace “zombie” with “gay” according to ‘Mclauchlan’s law of anti marriage equality arguments (douche-bag variation)’
