The zombie apocalypse is here - how do you defend your home?

Asked by downtide (22980 points ) August 8th, 2010

Zombies are out in your street* and they want to eat your brains. Can you defend your home only with whatever you happen to have already? If so, how? If not, what will you do?

*(not really – don’t panic).

Play dead, of course.

The same way I do every day.

I pity the fool (or zombie) that walks on my property without asking first.

Besides, what would be the down side? Becoming a zombie?
They have such a live for today attitude.

Eating my brains? Sounds like they would be doing me a favor.

I’m not worried….I just put my MIL on the front porch with a couple bottles of red wine and even a zombie won’t come within a 100 yards of her!

I don’t try to. I run away from it and the zombies as quick as my chicken feet will carry me.

Two words: bacon!

downtide's avatar

@wundayatta I’m prepared to believe that bacon is the finest thing on earth but I can’t work out how it can save you from zombies. And what’s the other word?

Me, I think I will use the fuel in my car’s tank – to drive the hell away from there.

Are you trying to tell me that bacon isn’t two words?

You could knock me over with a feather.

Maybe I could stick a brain-feeder across the street.

I’m on the second floor. Those stairs are going away right now. I’m still at risk in the event of fire, but I have a location scouted out in the Cascades where I think I can successfully hide away for a while. I’ll get there by bike, to avoid the noisiness of a car.

I think that I am pretty well prepared.

Who wants to meet up at my place? I’ve got a shrimp party platter in the fridge too, if anyone is interested.

Good marksmanship and plenty of ammo.

downtide's avatar

Is it possible to zombify a dog? If not, I’ll sic my crazy pup on them. :-)

TexasDude's avatar

@downtide I ate it all yesterday :*-(

TexasDude's avatar

@Dr_Dredd, in most zombie lore, it is not possible to zombify a dog and zombies also hate dogs. You should be good to go.

Dr_Dredd's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Woohoo! Me and the 7-lb feisty bichon frise pup will go out and kick some zombie butt!

TexasDude's avatar

@Dr_Dredd, aw, I love those dogs! They are so cute!
