Unsung Heroes of the Zombie Apocalypse pt. 3

The world is full of heroes. Often times, it's those average every day people that, when under pressure, rise to the occasion and lead others to victory or safety. Many times, they are the 'slackers' of society... content to let the world pass them by... at least until the zombie poop hits the fan.

I present to you, slackers turned zombie slayers, Shaun and Ed of "Shaun of the Dead." Now, I know they're hardly obscure protagonists of the apocalypse, but they are often forgotten among lists of popular zombie butt kickers.

Spoiler Alert (if you've never seen the film, but plan to, stop reading!)...

Of course, those of us familiar with the film know that Ed buys it in the end. It's a sad moment of self-sacrifice by a wounded man... someone who knows his fate is sealed and pushes his best friend onward while they still have a chance. It's also hilarious when that sad moment is lightened by a fart joke. Only Shaun and Ed could pull off such a combination.

So... we salute you, Shaun & Ed. Should the zombies return, let's all meet at the Winchester for a pint until it blows over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?

Aim high. Run fast.
