Submitted for your approval

Life feeling a little dull? Routine got you down? Would you rather be chased by zombies?

From The New York Times:
On Wednesday the publishing imprint behind the popular undead comic-book series “The Walking Dead,” which spawned the hit AMC drama of the same title, said it would introduce a new live event, The Walking Dead: Escape, at Petco Park in San Diego this summer. ...

Organizers of The Walking Dead: Escape said in a news release that it was “unlike any obstacle course event” in the United States, allowing participants to play “a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party.” ...

Those who take part in the event as Survivors must “climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers,” the release said, adding that it “is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly.”
Oh, I dunno. Feels kind of like the same old, same old to me.
