Do Zombies Poop?

We don’t like to talk about it, but scientifically speaking, the removal of waste is an important biological function.

It’s not only necessary for sustaining life, it’s a sign of life itself.

In short, what goes in, must come out.

Zombies are, by their very definition, dead.

But they eat. Specifically, they want to eat you.

Say we’re in the zombie apocalypse. You’re the slowest member of our pack and a zombie eats you for lunch.

We did our best to help but you know, this is the zombie apocalypse and shit happens.

But does that shit happen for a zombie? Because if a zombie eats you, me, and a dozen other people, eventually it’s going to get pretty crowded in there.

In short, if zombies don’t poop, then eventually the principles of science dictate they must reach a critical mass after which their zombie bodies can no longer hold in matter and then they explode, a sea of consumed body parts flying everywhere.

Do zombies poop?

Author Jack Flacco posed this very intriguing question on jackflacco.com

Check it out, 3.5 readers. As God as my witness, I will not rest until this very important question is answered.

Looking to God

Whenever I write about something, I try to find an angle to the story. Although I may have an idea, and it may be a good idea, I won’t write about it until I discover the hook. When it comes to zombies, as much as I enjoy the genre, the hook may not be so obvious. The reason for this stems from the fact that the genre has a number of mysteries I have yet to answer. I’m sure someone out there has the answer, but I don’t.

Do Zombies Poop? Do Zombies Poop?

Today’s Monday Mayhem feature will concentrate on describing what three of those mysteries are.

Do Zombies Die?—I’ll have to admit I haven’t watched or read all the zombie stories out there. Yes, I also feel it is a travesty. Other than Warm Bodies, where, after some time, the zombies become Boneys, and in The Walking Dead, where the…

Pop Culture Mysteries: BQB’s Working On It

Hello 3.5 Readers.

WOMAN:  I'm scared! OPERATOR:  Because there's a man in your house? WOMAN:  No because BQB hasn't posted any new Pop Culture Mysteries yet!

Bookshelf Q. Battler here.

Funny thing about being an aspiring writer.

Literally no one respects the process.

Here’s how my past week has been.

BQB:  Uh, HELLO?!  Can everyone leave me alone?  I’m trying to write a whimsically fun story about a private dick who woke up after a 59 year nap and now solves mysteries related to popular culture!


Here’s hoping there will be more free time in the week ahead.

My problem has never been one of writer’s block.

I have too many ideas.  I just never have enough time.

But I know I have to pick one and this seems like a good one, with a structure that fits my life.  I can post pieces of a mystery, form an ongoing story, and then hopefully manage to produce a book at the end of the season.

Until next time, 3.5.
