La Faucheuse au Zombie Walk Paris

Paris was an undead mess on Saturday. Thankfully, the Reaper and his zombie crew were there to clean up. The miniature zombie made his own mask! Photographer cred here.

On the Road


Great games to play on the road to Hell:

  • Count the skeletons
  • Are we there yet?
  • Who's at my funeral
  • Punch buggy
  • Let's swim
  • That annoying popping sound Donkey makes in Shrek
  • I have to pee
  • Are we there yet?
  • Strip to the bone poker
  • Chess
  • Look at the... no clouds
  • Are we there yet?
  • Guess what's under the Reaper's hood

Tea Time of the Dead "Morning Coffee" excerpt


Tea Time of the Dead
Morning Coffee

W
e woke up this morning with a load of customers. There were way more folks than just the regulars, and some of them looked like they’d come from far away. At the Tea Time diner, we always had more than enough clients to keep the business going, usually the same ones. This was the best place for zombies to get their bloodshakes and grilled brain sandwiches. Today, the place was so crowded I barely had time to serve one that a whole new gang was on their way in. Something was up… After pouring a hot cup of joe for a cute teen couple with their arms sewn together, I went to check on Bob in the kitchen. He was cooking for thirty and all over the place. We’d been together and running this place for a long time. We were supposed to use the money to get married, but never really got around to it. I caught Bob stealing some raw bacon and slapped his hand. It fell off, landing in pancake batter.

Facebook Still Not Available in the Afterlife

THE AFTERTIMES


Facebook Still Not Available in the Afterlife

  After much negotiation with Mark Zerckerberger, CEO of Facebook, earth's favorite social network is still not available after death. Although "facebooking" is a common practice among children and the elderly, the website in question does not require that you remove your friend's and family's physiognomy for scrap-booking purposes. Instead, users are invited to sign up to a website to connect with their peers, share images and press "like" buttons in exchange for their soul. Hell's chairman denies having anything to do with it.

"It's an outrage," says the Grim Reaper, the only being to have access to the website. "Citizens of the Underworld should be allowed the same superficial services as the living," he protests while chowing down on a large bag of pork rinds.


A mother of two two-headed children also expresses concern: "I don't understand cyberspace much, but I don't like my kids, or their multiple limbs, being left out." On the dark side, a social network designed specifically for the deceased and undead is underway. In addition to this, internet haunting tutorials are rampant on the afternet. Beware of the digital ghost busters being formed to counter this action. Rapid communication is growing in popularity, and messenger crows, snakes and gargoyles complain of going out of business as tech startups "take over" Silly Cone Valley. However, technology is still too dispersed in the Underworld to have a true impact. In the end of the day, what really matters is that we speak face to face on Google+ hangouts.
