Everyone knows zombies are hungry.
Naturally, brains are on the menu, and occasionally my six-year-old daughter expresses her concern that a zombie might eat her brain as she sleeps (thanks, ParaNorman).
But the nerd in me can’t help but wonder why a zombie would want to eat today’s brain.
Today’s brain is full of aspartame, SSRI’s, cadmium, arsenic and mercury, phthalates, benzene metabolites, DDE and BPA. Scientific American even tells us we have fewer memories stored in our brains now that we can rely on “the cloud.”
Eeeeww. We’ve literally turned into the human equivalent of potato chips.
