December Contest Winner

Contest Ninja: RC Murphy

Possibly the most fun we’ve had here in the Command Center this month—aside from playing with the new machetes we got in our stockings—came from reading what you all thought our movie reviewer A. Zombie would want from Santa Claus. And while there were a lot of answers that made us laugh so hard our sides hurt, only one person managed to guess more than one item on his wish list.

Without further ado, the winner of our December contest, who’s getting something nifty from our prize closet, is Brim89. Congratulations!

Just for fun, here is A. Zombie’s unedited letter to Santa Claus:

Dear Man in the Red Suit,
   I’ve been told you are the one to talk to about this present thing. This Christmas I would like the following items delivered to the fake, plastic tree-like monstrosity beside the furnace:

  • Bone Saw
  • Suture kit
  • Lock pick kit
  • The Walking Dead season 1 Bluray (what? A guy needs good entertainment between bad B movies.)
  • Gift card to local butcher
  • A severed arm in a pear tree

A. Zombie

Remain vigilant, crewmembers. Another opportunity to win something from the ZSC prize closet will be coming up sooner than you think.

Spreading Holiday Cheer with A. Zombie

Contest ninja: RC Murphy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that a) the holidays are sneaking up on our collective tail and b) the Zombie Survival Crew’s resident movie reviewer isn’t actually alive. There’s a long story about how we came in possession of the cantankerous A. Zombie. One day we’ll all gather around a campfire and I’ll share the tale. Rest assured, he has been secured in a safe place within the ZSC compound. No accidental nibbles from our reviewer. Promise.

Traditionally, zombies don’t celebrate the holidays, but A. Zombie has been watching us decorate the Command Center and grew curious about all of the hustle and bustle. The other day he slipped a letter under his cell door.


Dear Man in the Red Suit,

Zombies Roasting on an Open Fire…

A little Christmas caroling for y’all on this blessed day.

Zombies roasting on an open fire, paramedics reattaching toes.
Freaking Vatos are stealing your tires and dang, their pants are really low.

Everybody knows some bullets and a crossbow, kill the zombies right on sight.
Daryl’s squirrels with their eyes so dull will make a great feast tonight.

You know that zombies like to slay. They’re sinking rotting, nasty teeth into your leg.
And the fever will make you fry, in the morning you’ll walk after you die.

And so we’re offering this simple pledge, to folks from all around the world.
If you’ve been bitten by a zombie redneck, we’ll shoot you humanely.
