Hard hats: The brains you save may be your own. (Mark K.)

One word: Moat. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of not getting gnawed on by the undead. (Andy H.)

Vaseline the doorknobs….need I say more? (Jonathan B.)

Run. But don’t trip. (Kat M.)

Fire is good, fire is our friend. Fire is not the zombie’s friend. Keep that in mind.
(Mel Brooks reference for the win!) (Roy H.)

Time to colonize Mars! (Andrew S.)

Thor swings a big hammer.  He’s onto something. (Adam A.)

When looking to move fast remember walking is fine, and cars are great.  But bicycles don’t need gas and can help you out run zombie hoards. (Robert S.)

The unprepared will be as big a threat as the zombies… (J.B.)

Practice good ear hygiene. How something that smells like roadkill, moans, and shuffles its feet can sneak up on anybody is a mystery. (Chris C.)
