So yes, I’m blaming the latest undead fad, the zombie, on Stephenie Meyer, because she and her “Twihard” army have pushed the public into a place where they are wishing, hoping, and praying for a zombie apocalypse. The public has had their fill of pathetic movie monsters and have latched onto a creature so terrible that there is literally no way that Stephenie Meyer or her imitators could possibly turn them into a teen love interest… Although… I wouldn’t be surprised if somewhere deep on the SM hard drive, one would find… wait for it:
The story of a goth girl in Flint, Michigan, who, being misunderstood and unliked by anyone in her school, falls in love with the rotting, yet walking, corpse of her formerly living boyfriend, Chuck. She longs to be with him, to have him eat her brain so that she can rot for eternity by his side. And yet, she is torn between her love for Chuck, and the Flesh Gollum created by the science geek down the street.
… oh, man… I think I just threw up in my mouth.
