Today I have the fabulous Giselle from Xpresso Reads on the blog! She's going to tell us a bit about why she thinks Zombies are so much better than Unicorns. Even though they're not. :)
If we're talking pretty, I admit, unicorns are up there with the angels and princesses, while the zombies are down the chart with dead fish and spiders (hate those things). But, in the scale of awesomeness, zombies top the chart with unstoppable hoards, gut-wrenching gore and - especially in the case of 28 Days Later zombies - not as dumb as you think!
Unicorns stay in their little castle and eat unifood, play with their unifriends. Who cares, right? Ooh a Unicorn Apocalypse - umm what does that entail exactly? Unicorns coming together to try and hit us with their horns? Or maybe they will use their healing power to turn our zombies back to life? Maybe. But isn't it the unicorn horns that keeps the magic? So say, a zombie attacks and breaks it off, the unicorn becomes a plain old horsie. Would horses win against zombies in a zombipocalypse? Not likely. They can run, and they can probably fight off a few here and there. But what's so scary about zombies and make them unstoppable: they never stop coming. The whole world population turned zombies, against a few horses, eventually the horsie will get tired of running and will have to succumb.
That's when the zombie turns a unicorn into a zombicorn. Which is, in my opinion, epic!
Are you Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?!
