A fun Saturday Meme--When zombies attack

Nipped this from an Old Naval Flight Officer whose blog I enjoy ( and who's still cool even though he didn't get back to me when I e-mailed him about grabbing a drink or two the other night...)

1. Pick three US Civil War generals to fight by your side in the Zombie Apocalypse.

2. Same, but WWII generals.

3. Same, but US Presidents.

4. Same, but actors (living or dead)

5. Same, but writers.

6. Same, but rock musicians.

7. Same, but fictional characters.

My choices were as follows:

1. Without question, Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and John S. Mosby. (OldNFO agree 100% on these three, but then great minds tend to think alike.)

2. Generals George Patton and Omar Bradley, and Admiral Raymond Spruance. (If it wasn't limited to American Generals, I'd have Rommel in a heartbeat.)

3. No question: Ronald Reagan, Theodore Roosevelt and Andrew Jackson. All real-life tough guys and action men, especially Jackson; anyone who can beat his own would-be assassin and win duels has got to be on the team.

4. John Wayne, James Stewart and Audie Murphy.

5. For writers, I want Niccolo Machiavelli, Heinz Guderian, and Erwin Rommel (got him!). Gotta think big-picture sometimes.

6. Ted Nugent of course, but add Toby Keith and Debbie Harry (Hey, I've gotta have my stress reliever in between bouts of saving the world...and she's still pretty hot.)

7. Alan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, and Jack Harkness.

We're gonna kick some zombie ass with this team.


  1. Oh damn... Sorry about that... sigh...

  2. No problem, my friend. I'll try to give you a bit more notice next time.

  3. See, zombie work requires not dash, but persistence and a willingness to accept losses of close relatives. So I'd vote US Grant for the WONA General. Also, the WWII thing, I'd actually go for Monty. Slow (Zombies are slow) and thorough.

    You really have that Type 'A' personality of "Let's do stuff!" When zombie work really requires something more akin to really, really good supply minds. No offense.

    And, in US Generals, no George Washington? He sat out a winter (zombies freeze in place, you know) and won the American Revolution!

    Media characters? Walker: Texas Ranger, HUNTER, and Elliot Ness (THE UNTOUCHABLES).

    And, I hate, hate to say this, but the fat one from the Dixie Chicks, the awful one, that Natalie. I think, confronted with a Zombie horde, she'd change her tune. And be my special little female buddy.

  4. Debbie Harry?
    Natalie Maines?
    Now I've lurked here for ages!
    But I think during a zompocolypse,
    I'd hand in my straight card, and go with Capt. Jack Harkness!
