What does it mean? Who cares, it’s provocative

“Nazi Zombies Invade Painkiller Hell and Damnation” by Marshall Lemon at The Escapist — nuff said!

Seriously, I think the article is about a video game but who cares, that headline is zombie amazing; Nazi‘s and painkillers !!! Bravo!

Meanwhile zombie foreclosures with the new RealtyTrac data are making the rounds today, BoingBoing has the story as “Zombie houses: 300K+ in America” by Cory Doctorow:

RealtyTrac reports that America is home to 301,874 zombie houses — houses that have been abandoned by their owners, but not foreclosed upon by the banks. They effectively have no owners, but their erstwhile owners are theoretically on the hook for maintenance and liability. Florida has the largest zombie infestation

Citing Christian Science Monitor: ” Zombie foreclosures: 300,000 ‘undead’ properties stalk ex-owners” By Barbara Liston, Reuters:

Zombie foreclosure: (noun) A home whose owner has abandoned the property but which the bank never finished foreclosing upon, leaving the owner legally and financially responsible for the decaying building.

The headline makes think of the movie-graphic-novel “300” – as a metaphor, maybe Xerxes is the banks and the 300k zombie mortgages are to be slaughtered — still it’s going to be a long bloody fight on both sides.

What does it mean to have abandoned the property? Does that sometimes mean just that they stopped paying? How many zombies are still trying to fight the banks and real estate developers for possible frauds and false promises. How many of these notes can never be foreclosed on because of robo-signing? Are the zombies the banks or the homeowners or the property itself? Sometimes the so-called blights on the community are really oppressed landowners. Sometimes being a walking dead is motivation to fight to the death. And sometimes not…

I don’t even know what that means
(No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative)
No it’s not, it’s gross (Gets the people going)
