Tor.com Name That Zombie Caption Contest

We here at Tor.com love us some zombies, and judging from your comments and our webstats, a lot of you love zombies, too. And so it is with great pleasure that we announce the inevitable Tor.com Name-that-Zombie Caption Contest.

How do you play? It’s easy. All you have to do is come up with your best caption (50 words or less) for the zombie photo above, and post it as a comment in reply to this post. Our panel of judges will evaluate all of the entries, and our favorite one will be chosen as the winner.

Not writing-related, but it does look fun.

When I checked it out there were very few entries, so the odds of winning are better than a kick in the head. lol
