Zombies for Dinner

“Hello. And how are you guys doing today?”
“We’re dying to eat. Do you serve zombies?”
“No, I’m sorry. But we do serve burgers and pizza.”
So, it's begun ... October in Salem, Massachusetts. Yesterday more than a hundred zombies walked the streets of Salem.
What’s next?
Well, while witches are certainly not uncommon in Salem ...
Yesterday … zombies.
Tomorrow ... vampires and goblins and ghosts, oh my!

Peter, one of our waiters, making friends with zombies.

Looks like more to come ...

Your lucky. At my local Macy's they have their Christmas Tree's up already (sounds like a post!).

M@ said...

Yum, blue zombies. My favorite!!! :)

April said...

I am so jealous. October in Arizona sucks. No zombies. No witches. (On brooms, anyway.) How about a trade? I'll give you a Gila monster, a 100 degree day and a really sucky NFL team for one vampire? What do you say Joe? Deal?

Ken said...

Wow, I had no idea I had relitives there!

just bob said...

Those zombies look better than I feel right now.

me: Keep all your stuff. I'm sending over a truck load of zombies, ghouls and ghosts absolutely free. Enjoy!

Ken: "Wow, I had no idea I had relitives there!"
Me: LOL! I saw the resemblance.

just bob: "Those zombies look better than I feel right now."
just me: Are you feeling more like a skeleton? A mummy? Get better.

bogart: "Do they ever chew on themselves?"
me: only the tasty ones do.

midleah:"Have you ever had a zombie ask if you served vegetarian fare?"
me: Good question ... the next commenter (one of the actual zombies, I'm guessing) answers this for you.

zombie maura: "Haha both zombies in that picture are vegetarians....Don't ask me to explain....;) ...

me: We aim to please all our guests ... even the vegetarian zombies.

xyu95: "I know that BOZO Zombie on top. hes a loud mouth imbecile thats always talking on the commuter rail while i'm trying to sleep."

catscratch: "I think I'll get out my zombie gear and come out to play!"
me: The more the messier ... er ... I mean merrier.

nursemyra: "Peter doesn't look very happy...."
me: Peter is our resident actor ... he played Angie D'Annunzio in Caddyshack and plays a detective in a showtime series.
Here he is with Bill Murray

Way cool Joe! You have so much excitement 'round yer parts!

My kids would be TERRIFIED to walk the street and run into the likes of them. I'm actually thinking I might come home with scratches and less hair halloween night when I take my 2 yr old trick or treating. She'll be pullin', clawing and scratchin' at me trying to stay safe from the "scaries"!

Can't wait to see more of your October happenin's!

Queen Goob said...

O.M.G. I am TOTALLY moving to your town!!!!

Queen Goob said...

Or at least driving through and shoving my spawn out the car.

just a girl... said...

uhhhh weird, and your waiter is hot.

MJ said...

Buy me somethin'?

Jay said...

But I thought zombies ate brains, not burgers and pizza!

Oh well. Another comfortable illusion shattered.. *Sigh*

xyu95 said...

wait til Peter finds out he's HOT!!

B-Dog said...

Yo, that would've freaked me out.

The B-Dog is particularly frightened of zombies. And public speaking.

SSC~ The Domestic Diva said...

Wow I guess its a lot different back east. At least you guys know how to dress up for any occasion!!!

Malicious Intent said...

Damn Zombies are such an annoyance down here. You can have them all. They been gobbling up dogs in folks yards all summer and now they are getting really pushy about eating us. Haven't they heard of Jenny Craig???

I want to go to Salem soooooo bad one day. You'll be the first to know if we do!
