"Zombocalypse Now", now!

It's time for a new Choose Your Own Adventure adventure, choosers! For this installment we're going to put ourselves in the life of a stuffed rabbit trying to survive a zombie apocalypse.

So buckle your seat belts, kids, it's time for braaaaains!

I love this setup. I love it so much I can't even make fun of it. We're a lounge-loving stuffed bunny looking for love and fighting off zombies, for the love of Pete, what's not to love?!

So what'll it be, fellow stuffed adventurers?

  1. Not exacly sure if it’s possible to “zombify” a stuffed bunny, since they can’t really, ya know “get sick.” They can carry germs though.

    Regaurdless, I’d run like hell.

  2. Run! Run, little bunny!

  3. Since this isn’t an R. Patrick Gates novel, I don’t think we should continue the zombie-date. I’m voting for the dine-and-dash…

  4. I hate to say it, but I’m tempted to stick this one out, just to see where it ends up going. I mean, obviously our date has become zombified, but since polyester stuffing probably has no nutritional value to zombies on the brains front, we’re probably in no immediate danger yet.

    Oh, and thanks for the recommendation, Jeff. Based on that advice and the sheer awesome that is this opening, I am SO going to order this book.

  5. Our clothes are wet? What clothes?

    Any how, I say we stick it out. Being a stuffed bunny in the midst of a zombie apocalypse is no reason to be rude.

  6. Awesome find! I got in the last one late. I’m looking forward to participating in this one.

  7. I voted to run, but I gotta say, this beginning promises loads of interesting situations. Hope it turns out fun (and funny) [crosses fingers and toes] šŸ˜‰

    This is reminding me of one of the flashbacks from Zombieland…

  9. Corran Horn

    I say we take the “Brave Sir Robin” route with this one and “bravely run away, away!”

    I’m for staying. What’s the worst that can happen?

  11. Yeah, I realize we’re a stuffed bunny and all, but it was never mentioned what we were stuffed with. For all we know it could be brains stuffed in there. Unlikely, yes, but do you really want to take those odds on the off chance that I might be right? Actually, considering the fact that we’re a stuffed talking bunny that can move and think of our own accord and this isn’t a Disney movie, it doesn’t seem quite so unlikely anymore now does it? I say run!!!!!!!!! Quick like a bunny (see what I did there?), make a break for it. After that, you can hide in the toy store and maybe meet a talking lady stuffed bunny and then do what bunnies do best….. Eat carrots, of course! Get your filthy minds out of the gutter and your feet on the floor and dash for the door. Now!

    Sorry, it’s late, I’m tired and this amused me.

    Our stuffing (as I pointed out) could be brains. Stuffing gets eaten. Bye-bye bunny.

  13. My first thinking is a hungarian children song. So here is a translate version but i remade a little


    The rabbit is sitting in the grass,
    Dozing, sitting.
    Rabbit, are you perhaps ill, perhaps ill…

    And my vote is to stay, wait what happens.

  14. Yay Zombies!! Let’s stay and see how this plays out.

  15. No option to call your Care Bear or ewok friends?

    I say run little bunny, run.

  16. Late to the party, but, I voted to stay. I mean, so far, our date hasn’t made any move to attack us. She’s clumsy, and has a hard time saying what she means (except when she means brains), but so what? That just means we’re on a date with Bella Swan.

    Wait. Is it too late to change my vote?
