so I'm guessing you've all seen this blurb:

http://www.chroniclebooks.com/index/main,book-info/store,books/products_id,7847/title,Pride-and-Prejudice-and-Zombies/

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies -- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy."


So then Travis came up with the game of the month:

Wow, new drinking game: adding 'And Zombies' to classic book titles.

"C++ for Dummies and Zombies" really made me laugh. It just makes sense.

this had me doubled over. I'm not sure which is better, C++ for Dummies and Zombies or Who Moved My Cheese and Zombies?

May I submit The Woman in White and Zombies
