Although I know that living is a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies would be a goddamned nightmare and ultimately tragic for me and my family, I still can't help but wonder about how awesome it would be to live in a world filled with slow moving monsters I could run over with a truck and just go to town on with a sword.
Trouble is, if a zombie outbreak were to occur, I'd most likely be one of the first people turned into the undead, I mean statistically speaking, there's no way I'd survive.
So to help comfort me while I ponder this sad fact of life, I decided to lighten up the mood by checking out some hilarious zombie memes. Because if I'm going to become a member of an undead horde in search of humans to munch on, I'd want to be able to laugh about it.
Growing up as a Muslim-Albanian family with very patriarchal ideas on the way a family is supposed to operate, my idea of what a father should be was a very "man's man" one.
He brings home the bacon, laughs maybe five times a year, and was really into Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorcese movies. Oh, and a Marlboro Red had to be perpetually hanging out the side of his mouth.
Fast forward years later and here I am, dadding it up, and I'm not that, like, at all. The manliest thing I probably do is hit the gym, bro, and not shave my chest hair. Other than that though, I'm nothing like the former generation of "guy's guys" that raised me. Which I'm totally cool with, because I'm already learning special hair braids to try out on my daughter once she gets older. Because her old man might be a North Jersey meathead, but he's going to be a meathead who doesn't mind having tea parties and getting his nails painted with his little girl.
