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 â€œShooting Circular Sawblades With The Slingshot,â€ 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. â€œDid that melon just ruin that lady’s face?â€ 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:
