The New Popularity of Zombies and the Zombie Apocolypse!

Updated on October 14, 2015

Zombie Games

Zombies are Cool

There is a new trend moving around the world. The fact is that suddenly Zombies are popular. They have their own jokes. They are almost as popular in jokes as the recent onslaught of Chuck Norris Jokes. The zombies were once something to be feared. The stars of movies that frightened young girls causing them to snuggle closer to their boyfriends at the movies. The thought of a zombie would cause people to cover their eyes and pull up their feet when watching them in action in an old black and white movie. The zombie was something to fear.

Suddenly the tide is changing. The zombie has gone mainstream. The zombie has cleaned up its image and is now the topic of conversation on a daily basis somewhere in the world.

Many jokes and comics show up on Facebook concerning Zombies, and surprisingly they are popular with people of all ages and gender. Several zombie games have made an appearance on Facebook as well. They are cute and cuddly, well as cuddly as the undead can be. They are everywhere and they are accepted. They are openly discussed year round and not just around Halloween. They are a hot topic.

Zombies have become an acceptable picture on a teenage girl's tee shirt or a doodle on notebook paper while at school. Lets face it, Zombies have become cool!

Zombies are Food for Thought

When a zombie is mentioned in passing, the entire conversation will turn around as people weigh in with what they believe a zombie would or would not do in a certain situation. Take for example the simple question: Would a Zombie eat a brain of a person that used drugs? Would that same zombie change? Would the zombie become a more corrupt zombie after being in contact with the drugged brain? Would that one druggie's brain become a gateway to stronger and more addicted brains?

Zombies are Fashionable

Zombies are fashionable.  There are questions as to what kind of zombie would a model be once she became a zombie.  Would she still have the model stomp? Would she assume a pose if she was caught in the helicopter spotlight? Would that model have the ugly pretty that Tyra Banks is always talking about in America's Next Top Model?

Facebook Zombie Games

Zombies are Appreciated

Finally the zombie has been moved to the top of the list. Rarely do you hear about Frankenstein, Killer Whales, ghosts or any of the other troubling menaces that have been in movies and book. There are no comments being made on twitter about The Blob. Only the zombie has been embraced by the social networking world.

These former living beings have never had such positive press about them as they have right now. Is this a sign of the end times, or is it a sign that the world has begun to embrace zombies as equals?

Only time will tell as to what has caused this change and how this puzzling event will play out. Will the zombie lose favor to some former cause for concern such as aliens or chupacabra. Time will only tell. Until then, hide your wife, hide your kids... There may be cool and fashionable zombies up in here.
