The Horror Honeys: Undead Thursday Jam ~ 'Re: Your Brains'

Undead Thursday Jam ~ 'Re: Your Brains'

Heya Tom, it's Bob from the office down the hall
Good to see you buddy, how've you been?
Things have been OK for me, except that I'm a zombie now
I really wish you'd let us in
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
But here's an FYI: you're all gonna die screaming!
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable; I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here--maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors,
We'll all come inside and eat your brains!

Sometimes, zombie songs can be absolutely delightful, and that is the case with Jonathan Coulton's "Re: Your Brains." It's the zombie apocalypse, and the undead are really quite affable fellows. They just want to eat your brains... It's not like they want to eat your eyes or anything. You can't blame them for being hungry, so stop being a dick, Tom! ~RH

PS ~ Bonus points for using Rob Zombie's disembodied head like a hand puppet. I've had that fantasy more than once.
