"Honey, the new neighbors are moving in next door." Gertie said to Harold as she peeked out from behind the front window drapes.
Harold just grunted.
"Harold, I think there is something wrong with the people next door."
Harold tore his eyes away from the newspaper and grunted again.
"Harold! The new neighbors are ZOMBIES!" Gertie screamed at him this time. "Their skin is grey and black and they walk funny."
Harold rolled his eyes.
"They have cases and cases of Twinkies and Ho Hos and Red Bull."

"But Harold, what if they decide to eat US? I think humans are zombie food too."
"Don't be ridiculous, after the country passed the no-discrimination policies for zombies and their offspring, they didn't have to eat people any more. Besides, they are good or better than having a cat, what with keeping down the rodent and snake populations."
"What?" Gertie was wide-eyed, "They eat rats and mice? And chase it down with Red Bull and a Twinkie?"
"That and I hear they like hot wings ...."
