You have to love the entrepreneurial spirit of one Florida businessman who has tapped into the popularity of all things zombie. Especially in the state that has seen the zombie-like resurrection of Republican, then Independent, and now probable 2014 Democratic gubernatorial candidate – the perpetually sun-tanned, self-serving Charlie Crist.
Meet Kurt Josephs who just opened the Zombie Survival store in Orlando, making it only the second store in the country to sell all you will need when the zombies rise up and start coming to eat you. (The other store is in Vegas – as if people there are really going to even know the zombies are here, what with windowless casinos and all).
You will find everything you need from life-sized, bleeding zombie targets, to zombie hunting licenses, camouflage clothing, gas masks, MREs and machetes to items like zombie candy, purses and zombie-themed home decor items for those of you silly enough not to take zombie apocalypse preparation seriously.
And yes, his friends laughed at him when he told them he was opening the new store, Josephs told the Orlando Sentinel.
But we all know who is going to have the last laugh when the Emergency Alert System sounds just like it always does in the movies.
If you really are the type who doesn’t worry about being eaten by decomposing, hungry, walking corpses, the Zombie Survival Army Navy Supplies store also caters to “ex-military men and women, police officers, survivalists and those on the hunt for Army and Navy gear,” the paper reported.
Take a look at the store’s website. If nothing else, you can mentally prepare how to survive the Democratic-zombies -dead and undead – who inevitably turn out to vote for the Crist’s, the Wasserman-Schultz’s, the Bill Nelson’s and Alan Grayson’s in your state.
