Things That Make Me Snarf - Hollywood Bloodsuckers

This one is PG-13 for some cartoon violence and bleeped out language. Thus endeth the obligatory warning for peeps with kids.



I'd totally see Rockula in the theater. Have you all heard about Transylmania? I am all for any film with the slogan "College students. The other white meat." Definitely going to see it on the strength of that alone.

Slayer wants to take me shooting in the interest of gun safety. I told him that was fine as long as we found some place where people wouldn't look at me weird if I painted my targets to look like zombies and yelled, "Double tap!" after each shot. Or two shots, I guess.

That makes me think, which we all know is dangerous. In the movie Zombieland, all the humans gave themselves nicknames based on locations that mean something to them. In other words, the two guys were Tallahassee and Columbus. But really, I refuse to be known as, say, Cleveland. No, in the event of a zombocalypse, I want a name with style, a name that says something about me. I'm thinking Little Bunny Fu Fu, but I'm not entirely sure.

What would your zombocalypse name be?

Oh the things I've never stopped to think about. My zombocalypse name? I'm thinking you should have rules for how to create it, like stripper names. I remember being told that your stripper name is (1) the name of your first pet, combined with (2) your mother's maiden name. That made me Missy Sidelinger.

So what should go into a zombocalypse name?
Maybe the name of your favorite cartoon character, along with your favorite action verb?
In that case, I would be Belle Stinger

Carrie Harris said...

I'm all for a rule, but you wanna hear my cartoon character/action verb name?

Tick Snarf.

I guess it fits me, but... uh... I'm not sure I can answer to that without laughing.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Zombocalypse! I love it!

Let me think...if I follow MeganRebekah's logic and go with my favorite cartoon character plus a verb, I would be Scooby Strutter. How's that for a Zombocalypse name?

Kiersten White said...

No! You need to be Little Bunny Kung Fu! Because fighting the zombies is all about skills, right?

You KNOW my mouth started drooling for this one. This is going to be you: Zombie Shooting

The only targets that will eat your brains!

This one even has some Nazi zombies (Nazbies?) Nazbies

As far as a zombocalypse name, I'd want something cute and fluffy, if for nothing else than making people say things like, "Hey, Gummi Bear, got any grenades left?" Or, "Man, NICE head shot there, Princess Bubble Yum." Maybe even, "Hey, anybody have any ammo? I'm almost out over here. Wolverine? Preacher? Angel of Death? Nobody?! What about you, Sticky Bunz (yes, with a Z), you got any ammo?"

When they come, I think it's going to get interesting.

Tere Kirkland said...

LOL, my husband wants to take me shooting, but it's because we live in New Orleans, not fear of the zombocalypse. Tick Snarf, I love it!

I guess I'd be Leela Dart. Nice.

Carolyn V. said...

I want my name to be Brainsucker. That not only sounds zoombieish, but scary in a zoombie kind of way.

abrokenlaptop said...

My stripper/zombocalypse name is Kitty North. Does that strike fear into anybody's (reanimated) heart? Nooooo. I guess I'll have to go by area, and you can call me Vegas. Yeah, baby!

-Mercedes

Kelly said...

That video was hilarious!
Sookie!
My nickname would be Bella and I'd fall for a zombie because I like supernatural creatures (and theyseem to like Bella so I wouldn't get my brains eaten).

Kelly said...

Or my cartoon/verb nickname would be
Buttercup Headbanger

Renee Collins said...

Okay, that video was hilarious. :)

sraasch said...

Dude, I'd totally go shooting if I could yell "Double Tap!" after each shot. Best way to spend a day EVER.

My zombopocalypse name...hm. Using the cartoon/verb combo:

Sinbad Flush

Mariah Irvin said...

I agree with Kiersten; you should be Little Bunny Kung Fu.

Natalie L. Sin said...

I can think of a few names, it's so hard to decide : )

Candice said...

I think I would choose to be named after a combination of my favorite desserts since I'm basically food to the zombie anyway. I'm toying with, Triple Death by Chocolate. It has a nice ring to it and it's somewhat intimidating.

MasonIan said...

When the zombocalypse comes I just want to be known as El Diablo con Corazon Negro.
Maybe the Zombies will be so in awe they'll hesitate enough to give me the edge in hand-to-hand combat.

Either that or Chupacabra.

But if I used MeganRebekah's formula I'd be Bone Disinter.

Larissa said...

LOL - That was snarfalicious.

Um, my formula zombocalypse name is Phineas Freeze.

Little Bunny Kung Fu definitely suits you, though. :)

Karen Denise said...

Sookie, Sookie, Sookie! I can't stop lauging at this!

Tiny T said...

According to MeganRebekah's formula, my zombocalypse name would be Ariel Skip. Or Ariel Giggle. Or Ariel Fire. .... The list could be endless and Ariel is only ONE of my favorite cartoon characters. Ah, the memories.

I'm sure Anny is loving this post. ;)
