For those who love the undead...or not...

jetmorrison is organizing a Zombie Walk.

After all.. "Finally: zombies are only really effective when travelling together in large groups. Bring your friends, foes, family and other loved ones.

Nothing says you love someone quite like caking yourself in make-up, limping down the street together and eating them in the park!

A homily on MA's petition to repeal the gay marriage laws...

Not funny, but wittily written and thought-provoking (from a locked post by osiris_06, QWP):

Again with the anti-gay marriage petition at Mass today. "There's a false rumor going around, a falsehood which...which is false*, that people who support this petition don't love their neighbor, don't respect persons with an attraction to the same gender." Not gays. Not homosexuals. Not even people. Like he doesn't recognize that we're people too, can't legitimize us by refering to us with the same words with which we identify ourselves. "Persons with an attraction to the same gender." The same way he'd say "people with rabid dancing monkeys in their back yard." Something separate from ourselves, something we're stuck with. Certainly not love - just an "attraction." Well, I've got news for you. We're here. We're proud of who we are. And we're not going to go away just because you shut your eyes and prayed.

*How many times can we say "false" in one sentence?

This was just too good.

By darkeyedwolf, here:

"I ate babies in a past life.

There is no other explanation for why, when watching any and all new series, I'll realize my OTP, come online looking for fanworks, and then discover that it's obscure and/or underappreciated and/or no one ever realizes its greatness but me. It's karma. I munched newborns for breakfast, and lo, nature decided an appropriate punishment would be a libido that only fires up for rare pairings."

Martians get some strange addictions.

For the comic geeks out there, this thread in scans_daily tells the story of Justice League member J'onn J'onnz, the Martian Manhunter, and his battle with Choco (that's Oreo) addiction. There is some discussion of when in the series they stopped calling the cookies J'onn eats Oreos and started calling them Chocos. stealthmunchkin suggests a turning point, and ashuraou comes back with this:

"'Oreos are like your crack cocaine, Jonn, and you're addicted to them. You're not allowed to snort them off of Wonder Woman's ass anymore.'"

Such lovely mental images.
