Hey Occupy Wall Street: Dressing up Like Zombies Is Dumb
Usually we associate zombies with lame suburban pub crawls, but not today! Today is Zombie Flesh Mob Day, brought to you by the makers of Occupy Wall Street. The protesters have taken back "zombie" and given it to the people, to make a statement about corporations.
The directive from OWS HQ:
Everyone come dressed as a corporate zombie! This means jacket and tie if possible, white face, fake blood, eating monopoly money, and doing a slow march, so when people come to work on Monday in this neighborhood they see us reflecting the metaphor of their actions. Tell your friends, Facebook it, Twitter it, and it can be MJ Thriller-style too! Create a different image than police brutality!
Other upcoming events: Hedge Fund Managers in Snuggies Day and Corporate Santas Day. But seriously guys: not only are Wall Street workers unlikely to see themselves "reflected" by your bloodied-up stockbroker outfits, but zombies are as played out as America's income gap. You guys should all put on spotless tailored suits, slick back your hair, and march around Zuccotti Park in neat rows, shouting into cell phones about your investments. That would make a statement, and also shut up all the "dirty stinky hippie"-haters, at least for a day or so. (It would also look cool.) [Image via Shutterstock]
