Zombies Invade San Francisco!

So, zombies invaded San Francisco yesterday and I was there for the whole thing!

This is across the street from where I work. I didnt' see where the zombies came from, but I assume that they shambled out of the subway...

Why zombies? No reason!

There was a pre-planned route for the zombies to shamble along. If you wanted to be attacked by them, you just put duct tape on your clothing and wait along the way. Here's the massacre near the cable car stop:


Just some zombies shambling their way to Union Square:


Zombies attacking the Apple Store:


I didn't feel like being a zombie myself, so I just went to gawk. The zombies were late (guess the undead don't really care about punctuality) but so was I, so I was just in time to hear the first groans of "braaaaaaaains" come across the street!

Quite a few people were attacked and zombified along the way, leaving trails of blood, so it was quite the mob that ended up in Union Square, attacking a few more people as a live band played. They started up a chant of "Brains! Brains! Brains!" and groaned appreciatively when the band finished their song.
Fun stuff I witnessed along the way:
  • A very grim-looking family of Spanish or Italian tourists. The father watched the zombies from across the street and kept intoning "zohm-bees" solemnly.
  • There was a guy with a "God hates zombies" sign. He stopped to talk to the "Jesus Christ Loves You" sign guy who's always at Powell while the zombie massacre was going on.
  • As he passed a Starbucks, a zombie lunged at a window and groaned "espreeeeeeeeesso".
  • The zombie leader asked the mob whether they wanted to invade the Virgin megastore or the Metreon, but then they noticed Scientologists across the street outside Old Navy and attacked them instead.
  • The zombies started groaning "no braaaaaaaains" when they attacked the Scientologists. The Scientologists were not amused.
  • A little girl asked her mom about them, and her mom told her they were zombies. After some consideration, she asked, "Are they still people?"
  • One of the zombies asked me politely if he could eat my brain.
  • [Edit: A ghetto guy at the massacre seemed to be put off by them and yelled, "Fuck y'all zombies!" at them.]

My week of eating vegetarian food worked out pretty well! The only problem I had was that because it made me just as full, but had less calories, I don't think I was eating enough and felt sleepy and tired, which I thought was just because I was short on sleep. But I ate very well! I stuck to Asian vegetarian, because I think it's much tastier. Something to do with the Buddhism tradition or whatnot, I guess.

And because it made me crack up:
WANTED: Gay Men and Their Dogs!

fuck all y'all zombies! *giggles*

that sounded so awesome!!!

OMG thanks for reminding me! I have to add that one.

Oh god. I knew Californians were from another fucking planet...this just proves my theory correct. :)

They had one in Vancouver too! And next year it will spread to other cities as well. Zombies are taking over the world! Grr, argh.

As he passed a Starbucks, a zombie lunged at a window and groaned "espreeeeeeeeesso".

A zombie after my own heart!

The zombies started groaning "no braaaaaaaains" when they attacked the Scientologists. The Scientologists were not amused.

Never mind, I LOVE THEM ALL.

I died laughing at those too! :)

whats difernt with asian vegetarian?

Umm, it just seems more flavourful somehow, because it's made with the intent of being a main course? I feel like with western food, the veggies are always made as a side, so they're kind of blander because the meat dish is the main course. And they tend not to provide a good source of protein like tofu/nuts. Like even with Italian, it's just tomato sauce without the meat and eggplant and/or mushrooms instead, which aren't very proteiny.

OMG TAMMY GAVE ME THAT BOOK!!! *joins*

Ahh, it was so much fun!!! *giggles*

They attacked the Apple store? Bwahaha.

That first one, if you didn't know what was going on, would be kind of freaky!

Yes!!! I loved when one of the zombies said the file system is insecure then ended with "braaaaaaaains" and shambled off.

There were definitely a lot of gawking tourists and stuff. *grin*

Oh my God, SERIOUSLY? That's just too fuckin' cool. Zombies > life. Or um. Something.

No, seriously; that's just all too cool.

There is just something strangely appealing about the undead.

FUNNY!!


One of the zombies asked me politely if he could eat my brain.

EVEN FUNNIER!!

*hee* that sounds like a totally fun idea!

It's things like this that make my heart swell with love for San Francisco.

this post cracked me up.

The zombies were late (guess the undead don't really care about punctuality)

*snickers*

The father watched the zombies from across the street and kept intoning "zohm-bees" solemnly.

lol!!

everyone needs friends.

I always find that I have to eat more often than most people, like I plan five small meals not three big ones, it's getting the balance of food right, especially heavy protein to keep you going. Also eating bread and cheese all the time doesn't cut it. does it bernadette?

I loved that they attacked people along the way to add to their numbers--just like a real zombie mob! :P And the Scientologists thing was priceless. They're one of the mini-banes of my existence, always pestering me to take a personality test while I'm on my way to work.

Yeah, I pretty much had veggies and rice all week and kept with the same volume, so probably wasn't enough food. Bread and cheese is yummy, though! :)

Freakin'a! how did I miss this?!?!!?!? :( I'm sad. ROTFL. I've seen that dude that holds the sign "Jesus Christ Loves You" damn, I wish I could have seen that conversation...

Definitely have seen the scientology people...and then there was a dude once, yelling at the top of his lungs "SCIENTOLOGY IS A FARCE" ...his face was all red and he was standing by a "test your stress levels" table...we suggested he go visit them.

The only weird thing I've seen while visiting union square is a dude in dressed as a gorilla in a suit. so I guess he'd be a dude in a gorilla suit in a suit. *confused* anyhoo, they were giving out bananas and promoting them as a healthy snack. LoL :D

I only found out about it the day before from sanfrancisco. The "Jesus Christ Loves You" guys has some pretty explicit rants someimtes!

Ugh, I walk past the Scientology building every day on the way to work, so I have to play dodge-the-Scientologist. I have a reflex now to shake my head at them before I consciously register that they're Scientologists.

You can be pretty weird in SF without people really paying attention. The day I moved to the city I saw a guy in a pink leotard (with wings, possibly) with a wand on a unicycle riding around in the Financial District.

Glad you enjoyed my sign (patterned after Fred Phelps). I figured, this is San Fran, somebody has to protest the evil zombie horde. Before the zombies showed up, I was outside of Old Navy for 15 minutes. There were some very confused passer by who thought I was quite crazy. But then, the zombies came.
