You didn't know you needed to know.

There is no word for a collective group of zombies. We have a pride of lions, a pod of whales, a murder of crows; what should we call it when we're overrun by zombie hordes? (Yes, "a horde of zombies" can be used, but c'mon, THAT'S TOO COMMON FOR FRICKIN' ZOMBIES.)

My fellow crazy people who listen to The Rick Emerson Show are doing something about that.

Rick's put up a poll on AM 970 The Talker's website (lower left-hand side of the page). Choices include a craven, a scourge, a panic, and a slaughter of zombies.

Go and vote, zombie appreciaters! All that time contemplating zombies must lead to something! Knowledge is power. (And tasty. Tasty like brains.)

Far Later Edit: A word won. That word was "slaughter." A slaughter of zombies. Learn it. Know it. Love it.
