They are clearly not dead! They are moving, breathing, they respond, need to feed etc - they are not dead are they???

Why, has a zombie complained to you about this?

deleted203 Sat 20-Apr-13 22:16:18

I thought they were 'the living dead'...

MadCap Sat 20-Apr-13 22:16:34

They're living challenged or partially living grin

Beehatch Sat 20-Apr-13 22:16:59

They are Undead clearly

Do they....poo? Because they need to excrete to be a living thing apparently.

Don't judge them to harshly, you can tell by just looking at them that they have ishoos

Reanimated?

Lucyellensmum95 Sat 20-Apr-13 22:19:21

no no, they have just been referred to as dead on the film that DPis making me watch IN THE DARK!! ffs I just think that to describe them as corpses is wrong and the fact taht they can function (albeit at a basic level) with servere injuries should be treated as a potential wealth of possibilities in terms of medical research. Also, is it morally acceptable to kill them even more, unless of course they pose an iminent threat to "life"

Have you watched 'In The Flesh'? In that they are described as having 'partially deceased syndrome' grin

floatyfloni Sat 20-Apr-13 22:20:04

Ooh how very PC grin

Lucyellensmum95 Sat 20-Apr-13 22:20:45

I don;t knkow - do they poo??

NumTumDeDum Sat 20-Apr-13 22:21:32

Are you watching Cockneys vs Zombies?

Why is not a zomby? And several zombies? Irritates me daily I tell you.

cornydash Sat 20-Apr-13 22:23:21

they are the walking dead

What would be in a Zombie Bill Of Rights?

Lucyellensmum95 Sat 20-Apr-13 22:25:47

also, how do they know who is a zombie and who isn't? why don't they eat each other? I have often wondered this

FranKatzenjammer Sat 20-Apr-13 22:26:49

In the Zombie Survival Guide, it says a zombie doesn't have an active digestive system. The human flesh it ingests just builds up until it gets pushed out of its bumhole.

NumTumDeDum Sat 20-Apr-13 22:26:59

And now Sprinkledaily, it will irritate me too. Why have I not noticed that anomaly before?

Surely it's incorrect to refer to them as anything but 'fictitious' or maybe 'imaginary'

Lucyellensmum95 Sat 20-Apr-13 22:27:22

The right to eat arms??

RhondaJean Sat 20-Apr-13 22:27:42

I imagine they smell off, rotting flesh n all. Not appetising.

Off to google do zombies poo...

kim147 Sat 20-Apr-13 22:27:44

Do they reproduce?

GreenPeppercorn Sat 20-Apr-13 22:28:29

I think they are "re-animated corpses" aren't they? Cuts out all the unnecessary PC zombie bullshit about their alive or unalive status. Eating brians may or may not cause poo.

They are alternatively alive.
