Knights vs. zombies

Via Indri of Waterbones, who insists on getting credit for passing on this story, I learn of a brawl between knights and zombies in Montréal.

Some individual proposed a zombie attack on the knights in an online forum.

You know those nerdy Cegep kids who run around on the mountain during Tam Tams fighting with duct tape weapons?

We're trying to recruit an army of slow, dumb annoying zombies to go and attack them, just to see what happens.

Some folks dreaded to interfere with live action role play.
I don't know if I'd mess with larp-ers, they're really intense, someone (zombie) might get hurt. Despite that fact, this might just be the greatest idea in the history of ideas.
Indeed, the whole thing went over very well. There are a lot of pictures, though I notice that the zombies are mostly fond of photographing each other, so there isn't quite as much knight vs. zombie action as you might hope for.

And while the knights were willing to respond to the zombie threat, they did it on their own terms.

The refused to talk to "2005" people.

I had to introduce myself has "Marie-Elaine, the king's daughter"

Don't miss those pictures. There's quite a few of the zombies chowing down at McDonald's, looking oddly at home among the patrons.
