The Studious Zombie

The studious zombie resolves
to read the classics from A to Z
and adhere to a strict diet of smart people.
She starves midway through A Tale of Two Cities.

It is, indeed, the worst of times.

Does this meant that the overweight zombies are feeding on stupid people? Sometimes I think there must be enough of them to feed an army of zombies.

Buddah Moskowitz said...

Yeow! This was brilliant! and True to my life:

I recently starved myself on a theological treatise called "Reasonable Faith" and then found "Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted: And all the Brilliant Minds Who Made The Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic" and binged happily.

Snort, giggle, guffaw!

Alas that the literary illusion was no doubt wasted on dinner--in all ways. I really almost chose that title, but of course would have taken it in a much more morose direction. ;_)

Oh my! So sad he never made it to "Wuthering Heights."

Brilliant, Mama Zen!

Victoria said...

How fun. This is the first zombie-anything I've enjoyed. Just not my thing.

Helen said...

That studious zombie needed some junk food ... smart people don't taste good! (or so I've been told by my zombie pals.)

Fireblossom said...

Poor zombie, going hungry! She didn't get very far towards her goal, did she?

Wolfsrosebud said...

Great punch for a few lines.... wonder what would have happened if she started with Alice in Wonderland?

Lorraine said...

the truth, thank you

Debi Swim said...

Ha, when (I'll get in trouble here)people think 'Twilight' is good lit., well I'm not surprised the poor zombie starved to death.

Ella said...

OMG I almost spit my Iced coffee on my keyboard! I love your wit...lol

Kay L. Davies said...

Too funny. I have never starved but I've fallen asleep trying to read A Tale of Two Cities.
