Over the last few days, no less than three people have sent me a link to what will surely be the Greatest Book of the Generation: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (and seriously: Thanks for the tips, folks. Keep ‘em coming). The book apparently “includes the original text of the Regency classic, juiced up with ‘all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem.’” That’s what I’m talking about, folks. Classic literature given a zombie make-over. And you can add that to the movie I ran across researching yesterday’s comment diversion: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead.

It got me thinking: More movies, books, and television shows should be given zombie makeovers. How better to energize the slate of lawyers shows and procedurals. Think of how much better they’d be if both the “Law and Order” and “CSI” franchises added zombies, or if Sandra Bullock’s next love interest was a zombie.

That brings me to today’s comment diversion/Pajiba contest. The task I put to you all: Come up with your own iteration — a zombie title, premise, or a new zombie genre. Whoever comes up with the most creative idea or title (as adjudicated by yours truly) wins the zombie DVD of their choosing.

I’ll get the ball rolling with Paul Blart: Diabetic Zombie.

(And wouldn’t you fucking know, though I wrote this diversion yesterday, I noticed today that Spout had the same idea Let’s see if you guys can do better.)
