It also apparently logs you out of MetaFilter.

So wach warst du noch unbeeindruckt.

This is another prime example of why we need an undead option on the flagger system.

And your mark won't suspect a thing when s/he sees "zombieurl" in the URL!

When there is no more room in hell, the dead will read Metafilter.

*sigh*

YOUR NOT DOING IT RIGHT. Instead, you start with soft almost inaudible creepy whispering voices, wait a few seconds for your mark to turn up the sound, then softer creepier voices, wait a few seconds, then the SCREAM, and the zombie face pops up - eyes opening to reveal spiders and maggots spilling out from under the lids.

I am sure Astro Zombie agrees with me that this just portrays a gross stereotype of zombies.

I preferred the one when he posted all those adventure game peoples' correspondence without asking them. And I have to wonder: How many Fridays can this possibly have taken?

Think anyone would have cared if it wasn't posted by the waxy.org guy?

This is like that haunted house I and some friends did when we were ten. The one with the "ghost" that was actually a dirty white pillowcase that you yanked up on a pulley, yelling "Wooooooooooooooo!" Awesome in its very lameness.

My zombie had coconut shells for a bikini and really bad teeth. I'm not a fan.

Thanatopsis, no it was an embarrasing error.
posted by BrotherCaine at 6:14 AM on April 24, 2008


This is not funny.

Oh, it's always different zombies! Well, that doesn't change my opinion at all!

This needs an [annoying sound] warning.

You just gotta know that sooner or later someone will hack in a Goatse photo.

Don't you mean ZombieUrl?

Are any zombies safe for work?

That was motherfucking stupid.

Screaming zombie gags are soooo 2002.

I didn't even wait around long enough for the zomibe, and had to go back and read all this responses to try again. I thought it was just another Tiny URL but with a catchy name.

A most emphatic meh.

Um ... lame?

Ya know, the screaming noise coming from my office (thanks for the warning) was not very good.

Ha fucking ha.
posted by jabberjaw at 11:51 AM on April 24, 2008


Sorry. Lame. Really...

But... fundable? That's a joke, right? Please tell me that's a joke.

I beat you at your own little game totally by accident. I was listening to music and turned my speakers down because of a song with too much base and got a mild jolt instead of "falling out of my chair doing backflips out the window" reaction.

It happens, I assure you.

It had too much bass too.

loquacious: The "funding" was a joke. Rex Hammock was referring to my Worst Website Ever session from SXSW, where the winner got funded with $1 by venture capitalist David Hornik.
