The other day, I was talking with someone and the subject of Zombie Claus came up. The guy seemed genuinely interested, so I gave him the background. Wanting to give due credit to those that had gone before, I mentioned all the various zombie attacks around North America that had preceded it. He listened in wrapped attention, jotting down notes as I spoke. Then, when I finally stopped talking, he asked for a clarification. Without the slightest hint of irony, he asked, “We’re not talking about real zombies, are we?”

The fellow, I should add, was a reporter.

    I thought this was going to be about Jesus.

    We had talked about doing a zombie nativity scene last year, but chickened out.

    Try explaining to that same reporter how the rocket ship one’s building will contain an archive of all earth’s history.

    Looks like someone else had the same idea, Brett:


    Sorry to have to break it to you like this.

    The line between journalist and idiot is not that clear to me now.

    Someone call the mayor’s wife for a quote!
