Zombie Walk

05 Jun

Last weekend saw quite a few things happening at the same time in Stockholm.


First there was some unseasonally hot weather. For me, this meant sunglasses, a big hat and hiding in the shadows a lot.


Then there was the Elitlopp, some kind of horse race, of which I understood little and cared even less.

Soft luscious brains…

There was my son’s yearly class picnic, where I witnessed a fantastic water-fight and made some good deals whilst sipping brandy and eating badger’s nipple-tips.


There was the marathon, which was a marathon, but hotter.

Brains brains brains…

zombie2And finally there was the zombie invasion. Yes it was Zombie Walk 2009, and a hoard of 100 or more zombies staggered through central Stockholm, baying for brains, chewing lumps of bloody flesh and generally showing off their blood-soaked entrails and underwear.

I would love to link to this, but there doesn’t seem to be any kind of main organisation involved. Zombies, it appears, are organisational anarchists, with no central coordination. They live (or die) for the day.

Check out the Facebook group (Stockholm Zombie Walk) if you’re into that kind of thing. And you should be.

The next Zombie Walk in Stockholm is in October and I will definitely be there.

As long as there’s lots of brains.

    This sounds really interesting. At least much better than a walk in the Royal Castle.

    “badger’s nipple-tips” is a unique phrase with only one Google hit. I wonder what they are!?

    Helena: Good!

    Gary Waters: No, you bite.

    Blackout: As I mentioned, brains!

    Martin: Slight miss-quote from Life of Brian…
