Have you ever noticed that Zombies never kill other Zombies? It must be something about the rotting flesh or the miasma of metaphysical corruption that turns them away. It begs to reason then that if you find yourself in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse, you might be able to escape with your skin if you can pass as a Zombie.
I have to assume that this was the motivation that led being to start these “zombie walk” events. What are they? Well, you dress up like the undead, pick and major metropolitan center (or at least a place where people can see you) and then you scuttle, shamble and crawl your way into the now terrified hearts of the spectators.
The first recorded Zombie Walk (that didn’t involve actual Zombies) took place in 2003 in Toronto, Ontario. Since then Zombie Walks have become fairly common throughout the world and can attract hundreds, if not thousands of participants.
While there is some cause to worry that a real Zombie might sneak into one of these events and use it as a covert means of inducing the Apocalypse, it is a commonly accepted fact that Zombies have neither the cognitive capacity nor the hygiene to be able to sneak around effectively so don’t be afraid to join in on a Zombie Walk near you.
