Before we say our so longs to the sorrowful month of May, we have one day to finalize our zombie lust. I have searched, I have scoured, and I have rummaged through the Internet garbage to bring you some jewels of undead enjoyment. From a zombie beach party to a rudimentary anti-zombie blade-throwing slingshot, here is the last and final day of Zombie Appreciation Month:
Countless individuals have dedicated their lives to creating gruesome machines of death and destruction, but something about this next invention screams accidental decapitation. The video is titled “Shooting Circular Sawblades With The Slingshot,” and it is absolutely full of amazing. (Skip to 2:20 to see the damage it can cause to a watermelon.)
If you are wondering why this is part of the final goodbyes of Zombie Appreciation Month, let me reiterate the name of the video: Shooting Circular Sawblades With The Slingshot. It is “The Slingshot,” not “A Slingshot.” This is something he is proud of creating, proud of showing off, and proud of wielding like a watermelon mass murderer. When the bullets run out, this guy is fully prepared to launch sawblades into the decaying flesh of the undead. (For the Half-Life fans out there, this guy went to Ravenholm, conquered it, and came back to ready the world.)
However, I thought about something while watching this video: what happens if the slingshot backfires, like the melon incident from the Amazing Race.
(Side Note: I love how the blond lady is initially too stunned to do anything. “Did that melon just ruin that lady’s face?” Yes, yes it did, and it was hilarious to watch in both slow-mo and regular speed.)
Anyway, let’s move away from homemade death machines and toward a lighter, more joyfully undead time.
On May 28th, Asbury Park, New Jersey, held the first ever zombie beach party, equipped with zombie costumes, games, and make-up. Attending individuals walked up and down the Asbury Boardwalk during the Memorial Day weekend celebrations. If someone arrived at the party without the proper zombie make-up, professional make-up artists were on site to work their zombifying magic. Here are some pictures from the event:
