Yes, zombies, you can live, but there have got to be some ground rules. If I invite you to dinner or out for coffee you can’t take that as an invitation to try and eat my torso. You’ve got to act a little more civilized. Try and play nice for a change. It would also help if you’d say something instead of just grunting or moaning. Let’s have a conversation that involves something other than brains. And maybe change clothes once in a while. You could do with a shower too, or at least put on some deodorant. I’m serious. It smells like something died.
Wow. I am so sorry. I really didn’t mean that. It just slipped out. I mean, really, I’m not prejudiced. I don’t have anything against the Animate Non-Living. Trust me, I really appreciate how much you people have contributed to our culture.
Here, you can nibble on my arm a little bit. Okay? Are we cool?
Hey, not so much!
