Wump! Screeeeeee!

Public-service comics usually don’t fare well, mainly because the Message tends to undermine the Fun. But when the Centers for Disease Control tackles an outbreak of the Undead, it’s a match made in Zombie Apocalypse — you do have an emergency kit, don’t you?

Plus, this:

“I’m pretty sure Mrs. Clements was trying to attack her own cat, and she just nearly got me!”

Our only quibble is the cop-out ending, where the CDC enjoys a happier fate than it does in The Walking Dead.

@ManchuCandidate: Certainly more entertaining than the Cider House Rules. But why avoid strip clubs ?

Yep. Someone’s even making anti-zombie ammunition in your favorite caliber.

I used a handy Napalm Death packet out of my hunting pack to get a cheery little twig fire going up in the mountains yesterday. We were up at 9,000 ft and it was a bit cool (freezing temp overnight) up in the aspens in the morning. Most handy thing in there (besides the topo map that I had in my hand almost constantly)? My trusty compass.

@IanJ: Izzat FMJ for targets or plinking or hollow point for personal defense? Here’s what I was packing for Mr. Elk this weekend:


@IanJ: speaking of which, watching The Walking Dead? Season 2 is something else …

Silent Creative Partner recommends “American Horror Story” (FX). Jessica Lange steals the show as the bitchy villain.

@redmanlaw: I have no idea what it is, actually. Comments on TFB suggest it’s some other load, repackaged with a neon green ballistic tip. I’m not really familiar with ammunition other than .22, and I’m pretty sure they’re not making zombie-punkin’ ammo in .22.

@blogenfreude: I haven’t seen The Walking Dead. I barely have time to drop the occasional pithy comment on Stinque or FB, much less sit down for 22+ minutes of television at a stretch.

@IanJ: I’ll just have to swing by the friendly neighborhood gun shop to see what’s up and report back. I’m totally out of .30-30 ammo so I’m just going to have to sit down and roll some of my own before a possible deer hunt next month. It would be cool to get a turkey for Thanksgiving. My brother’s girlfriend the wildlife biologist gave me a very hot tip on a place near here.

ADD: @TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Ten Bare Essential for Wilderness Travel. Kinda sorta thinking about applying to join the local search and rescue team.


Is anyone watching _The Walking Dead_ webisodes? I just watched S2E1 — about to hit E2. Should I watch the hatchet webisode first?

3GS arrives tomorrow! Put me in the cloud!
