What happened last week? Looks like those zombie attacks we are all used to now have started to die down, only one crazy to report this time. On Saturday July 7th we have Mr. Jeremiah Haughee who decided to strip naked and take a stroll on his neighbor’s roof. Upon being confronted by said neighbors, Haughee decided to accost them, even biting one of them in the stomach bad enough to remove flesh. Police tasers, a fall from the roof, and repeated kicking to the knees did not seem to calm him down as he continued to fight police officers and medical personnel until he was shot up with drugs to calm him down.
And it turns out Haughee did not even consume the Bath Salts that has been the blame of all these attacks. Instead he suffered from a condition called ED, or Excited Delirium. I am going to research this a little further and probably do a blog on it next week. In the mean time keep in mind that many things can trigger a case of ED, but it’s most commonly blamed on the ingestion of a foreign substance, not just bath salts.
Congratulations go out to a Washington couple who recently got married. Paul Fulks and Miriam Itzkowitz wanted to make their wedding special so in the name of charity, they had zombies crash it! A charity group that hosts a zombie walk every year was asked to come and crash the wedding as a fun gag for the event. How could they say no? Not only was the wedding memorable but donations were taken for the Chris Elliott Foundation who does research for brain cancer. You have to have a huge heart to let your special day be overshadowed on purpose by zombies for such a noble cause and that’s why I wanted to highlight this event. Paul and Miriam, we all need more people like you.
Remember how a few weeks ago I bashed the design Robert Kirkman came up with for the Hyundai Elantra? He tried to make it road ready for the zombie apocalypse. Well his creation was debuted at the San Diego Comic Con and I must admit, even though it still wouldn’t work very well, this thing is a sexy beast. Follow the link for more information about the creation.
And last but certainly not least, if you don’t know about Byron Rempel yet… you need to get to G+ and set yourself up an account. Byron is one of our great friends and a fantastic zombie artist. Recently Michael Humphrey of Forbes did a fantastic interview of Byron showcasing his talented art and his philosophy on the state of the zombie madness that has taken the world by storm. Find out more about his unique artwork and his 1000 Zombies Project! And yes I have been zombiefied by Byron, and he did an amazing job of it too!
