My Friday 56 this week is from a book I bought my husband for Christmas as a bit of a laugh. It’s called The Ministry of Zombies Official Zombie Handbook (UK) by Sean Page and is amusing in how seriously the tone of each chapter is written. The sections of the book include A Survivor’s Guide to Zombies and Complete Zombie Defence amongst others.

A further complication to the legal status of the living dead may be around the human rights and associated legislation designed to protect people with particular medical conditions such as those in what is called persistent vegetative state. In this context, zombies could be viewed as having a syndrome and rather than being the living dead, we may well need to refer to them as the “livingly-impaired” or the “mortally-challenged”. Terms such as ghouls or zombie may be deemed offensive if not to the living dead themselves certainly to the friends and family of the deceased.

  1. Very cool cover, it pulls you right in if you’re into that sort of thing… which I am!
    I laughed at the 56 for sure though… mortally challenged… yup that’s better. LOL

    Happy weekend!

    • Happy weekend! It’s a very amusing book which I would recommend reading – especially if people keep asking you “what’s your zombie plan?” Lol 🙂
