I wonder - why do zombies always insist on only human brains? Is it a matter of quality? I'd never really thought of zombies as, by and large, gourmands, in the same way coffee enthusiasts have preferences for specific varieties. But why the uniform adherence to only hom.sap.? Wouldn't there be some who'd prefer, say, chimpanzee? I suppose there's the issue of more brain per body with a human than, say, a small dog, and when you're a zombie, there's the whole exertion of effort thing; so maybe it's more of an efficiency concern. And what about zombie dogs - do they only go for other dogs, or do they tend towards humans as well?

Zombie Godzilla. I think it needs to be made. Actually, I think Gamera would be more the kind of character to be a zombie, but how would you notice?

Oh.. my. This page shows what it claims to be a sample image from the forthcoming Popeye CGI special coming to Fox later this year, produced by Mainframe Studios. I'm hoping the image is merely a hoax.

A quickie I liked from rec.humor.oracle (and if you're not familiar with the Usenet Oracle, well worth a peek):

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply.
Your question was:

> Oh greatest of Oracles, that which maketh my shiny new toaster look
> dull by comparison...
> What is that fluff that persistantly gathers in the bottom corner of
> my wardrobe?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Moths that died laughing.

For shadowolf and stego_s_aurus, this spottydog image, by way of freakylynx.

Next time I'm in Cardiff, I think I'll have to try Wally's for some smoked paprika.. they're likely to have it, and at a good price; I feel like making some barbecue pork ribs. (My sauce tends to be mildly sweet, fairly hot, and just enough balsamic vinegar to bring out a good tang) I've not used it before, and it seems like it'd be perfect for my purposes. Hm. Wonder how well baked tofu would work as well?

Oh! Almost forgot - Rimle's got a couple new transformation pics up on the TF page. Strikingly unsafe for work, the stallion one moreso.. ^_^;
human brains are the only things that can kill the pain of decomposition

Ahh, yes.. I've seen that one. Which, of course, begs the question: is that factor something which could be chemically isolated and refined? It could be branded differently for various zombie demographics, upper end companies selling "l'Eau du Morte", for example. Really, you'd think some company would think of this. There's a whole market segment being completely ignored!

And come to think of it, they'd be even more attractive a market, as they'd be paying no taxes, so they'd have that much more disposable income, at least until decomposition grew too bad. Then again, as long as their skeletons could remain in some way animated, there's probably a lot of work that'd remain open to them - most office jobs, say, or supermodel.

I still need to lay my paws on a copy of the Popeye movie. ^_^ I always thought that was a fun film, and well cast too.

They could certainly work in Hollywood as props, replacing expensive robotics and cheesy looking CG, or worse stop-motion. ;)

But think of the labor demarcation disputes! Ray Harryhausen and the guild would be after the skeletons' union in no time. Speaking of whom, have you seen the highly memorable Flash Tribute to Ray Harryhausen?

They'd need a good supply of Eau du Morte in movies, though, since there aren't too many brains going around. ;)

It'd certainly explain the stunning lack of imagination.. does this mean Eisner is one of the undead? Best not to take any chances.

And, much as I love the video (not the music!) for Britney Spears' "Oops, I did it again", I can't help but look at her eyes, and almost see her hair through them. Is she perhaps one of a new line of golem?
