That's a dwarf zombie with a mattock that came through the wall?

#2 jokermatt999 Sat, 13 Mar 2010 04:39:15
Good set up, but it needs a slightly better punchline. I liked it until the end though.

#3 Sorceror Sat, 13 Mar 2010 06:31:46
I assume this is intended to be a reference to a certain George Romero film (or spoof thereof).

#4 BreathOfSorrows Sat, 13 Mar 2010 07:07:12
Yeah. In most zombie apocalypse films, the main protagonists survive their ordeals. However, because Dudley has such bad luck as always, he isn't likely gonna survive his own ordeal here. That's what I was aiming for.

Dudley being Dudley would likely step on a level teleport trap just before the zombies reach him, land on a spiked pit, climb onto a sleep trap and get killed by a grid bug.

LOL Sorceror!

No, he'd get killed by a newt. That's the running gag, isn't it?
