Pirates and zombies, oh my

First, the Minnesota zombies invaded the lakes. Then there was some unpleasantness from the police when they took over the mall. Now there’s going to be a zombie pub crawl in Minneapolis on Saturday, September 9. But wait! There’s also going to be a pirate pub crawl on the same day! What to do, what to do…

Actually, my personal dilemma is easily resolved by the date. It is a very bad idea to do a pub crawl the evening before your wife’s birthday. Even if the possibility of a pirate-zombie war tempts you.

    The ideal solution would be to watch from a safe location, such as the crow’s nest.

    Start as a pirate, and once you’re (literally) staggering drunk, switch to the zombie side!

    This sounded quite novel to me, so I was surprised when “ninja pirate zombies” pulled up 4 pages of links on Goggle.

    Wrong. They are just secretive about their alliance.

    If you doubt that this is possible, how is it there are NINJAS + PIRATES?

    This is a sure sign that global warming is a hoax.

    Sure they are. So are werewolves and vampires, but I saw this documentary earlier this year with Kate Beckinsale…

    Can’t you bring her along? Call it a birthday party or something.

    Dang – even the evening before is off-limits? Is that like the Jewish Sabbath starting at sundown the night before?
