AMC's The Walking Dead

AMC’s show, The Walking Dead, has made zombies – even the apocalypse – a hot new trend. So much so that fans are willing to overlook the fact that while everyone now carries the zombie virus, you will still only become a zombie if you die or are bitten. Case in point – Hershel had his leg cut off after being bitten by a zombie to avoid infection. But I have to wonder if it really necessary to cut off his leg since he’s already carrying the virus anyway. How is a bite any different if you’re already infected? Anyone know? (Psst. If you’re like me and don’t have cable, you can catch up on Season 3 of The Walking Dead via Amazon instant video.)

With that said, zombie mania is definitely sweeping the nation. Saturday Night Live recently did a parody skit of The Walking Dead which definitely portrays what we’ve all been thinking about Carl – is Rick is raising a right fine sociopath? So whether you’re a zombie fan or just know someone who is, here are a few fun zombie inspired products that you may find you just have to own.

    They cut Hershel’s leg off to avoid infection from the bite. Not the zombie viral infection, because as you said- they’re all already infected with that, but the regular infection one would get if they were bitten by something with a horrifically dirty mouth. That’s what actually kills a person if they get bit in a non-immediately fatal way.

    Human bites are surprisingly dirty to begin with, but compound that with a bite from a steadily decomposing corpse who has been munching on God knows what and you have the perfect storm for a deadly infection, especially with no formal medical care.

    So, now that they are already infected, if they get bitten do they now turn into super zombie zombies? What if they pour liquor on the bite to kill the infection? Would that be as effective as chopping off a body part right away? I’m still thinking there are holes in the scenario… 😉
