Ok, my wife is pissed. I used her car to take zombie to the carnival. You'll recall I posted that I'm saving up money for a camera by offering three whacks with a shovel for five bucks.
Everything was cool getting there, I had zombie in the gimp trunk, in the trunk of her car. I've got dog mats down and everything!
There's not a big outbreak here really, hell, I had to get zombie from a couple hours north of where I live. I think he was just some Rotarian from Podunk Michigan. It's not like the neighbors know I even have zombie.
So anyway, It's raining so I'm the one getting any customers. I used an art tent and a control stick for a dry day. Think of this attraction kind of like the old sludge hammer and car gig you may have seen years ago.
So as you can imagine, people can't wait to give me five bucks. Their laughing their asses off, kids are pulling at their mothers purse, umbrellas are popping up and I have a line.
I see this one guy for the third time. Each time he's swatting zombie harder and harder. The last hit knocked zombie's fargin leg clean of at the knee. Now I'm bummed... There goes the old tie the shoelaces together routine. So I close the tent down while zombie is doing a slow "Curly shuffle" and retrieve his leg. If zombie is whole and walking around, you can't ask question about dead body parts. The cops will be sure to investigate and that will point the finger right back at me.
Do you know how hard it was to get zombie back into the trunk? He's off center, dead weight for crying out loud. By the time I got the gimp trunked, I forget to get the leg in there with him. So I just tossed in into the bare car trunk. I could hear it rolling around back there and knew it was slamming around. Figured I could just wash it out.
Well, you can't get that stink out. Who knew. After I cleaned up and closed the car down, the humidity must of really helped the funk out. My wife got into the car and was pissed off. Said it smelled like dead chickens in there. She's already has the damn thing on Craig's list and says I have to answer the calls and sell the car.
Well, to make a long story short, I have enough for a digital camera and will get some shots as soon as it stops raining.
Oh yeah, zombie can walk again. I duct tapped a baseball bat to his stump. It's hilarious too. He can't get around very well. He looks like a drunken pirate at rough seas. Think I'll look for a pirate hat.
