Zombies at Work

business cartoon

I’m not a horror movie type guy, but I do love The Walking Dead. That show creeps me out in a wonderful wonderful way.

So I guess it only makes sense that I’d have zombies on my mind recently, and that whole “braaaaaiiiiinssss” thing is pretty hilarious. But I wanted to challenge myself to come up with something different with that concept.

There’s your standard zombie-is-hungry-because-someone-dumb-has-no-brains thing, but that’s pretty lame. You can have a zombie hungry for something that rhymes with brains, but that gets punny fast.

In the end, I opted for something more understated. I don’t know what that zombie is doing in that office, or why they’re both OK with his zombie-ness, but the normalcy of it all is what makes it work for me.
