Zombies Descend on San Francisco

This one is from left field. It all started with some great photos of the zombies as they descended upon San Francisco this past August. No, not the drug addicted derelicts in the Tenderloin. Real Zombies. In search of brains.

It doesn’t get much better than that. Okay, they didn’t really eat brains. It was all in good fun. And as our good friend, Protest Shooter notes:

Actually for a protest this was wildly successful.

  1. Turnout that beats most actual protests.
  2. Twitter followers twenty times larger than the save the oaks followers.
  3. Raised awareness.
  4. Massive honking, support from surrounding crowds.
  5. Good interactions with police which helps with future protests.
  6. Asserted rights to freedom of speech, freedom to assemble.
  7. Did it without permits.

And this despite bad weather and 30 minute subway delays. It’s pretty ironic that just a group of folks having fun can outdo the protesters with actual organizations and meetings and decades of experience and, oh, an actual cause.

If you interested in future “events,” feel free to drop by the zombies’ website. And before some smartass pipes up, why shouldn’t the zombies be allowed to have a website?
