Yesterday was the fifth annual ZombieWalk Columbus. For two fake-blood-filled hours, a couple hundred zombie men, women, children, dolls, and pets limped two miles around the Short North entertaining the daylights out of every passerby. Except for one. “Oh my God, I am like so stressed out right now,” said a (seemingly suburban and seemingly bleached) blonde gal standing behind me. “This is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in my entire life.”
To me, snap judgements, issues of Us Weekly, and reality TV shows are way scarier and more disturbing than a pack of hyper-creative, philanthropic zombies. ZombieWalk participants collect canned goods for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, embrace freedom of expression, abide all traffic laws, and never infringe upon anyone’s personal space.
