I was pondering the fact that zombies do not eat other zombies - even very fresh zombies. One would think that if was just brains they were after, a fresh zombie would be almost as good as a dead person. So - what is it about a zombie that spoils the appetite of the other zombies. I conclude it must bethe smell. My proposal - zombie deodorant. A spritz of this and even the rottenest zombie (ok - maybe not the rottenest) would smell just like a screaming teenager. The result - mass attack by zombie colleagues. A few water balloons of this stuff hurled into a crowd of zombies should turn them on each other - with fewer zombies as a result.

Similar techniques have been used on ants, which also recognize each other by smell. If you spray an ant with essence of dead ants, her colleagues will repeatedly carry her out of the nest and throw her on the trash heap.

This simple little game is a hoot. Unrelated to the idea, of course, but I just wanted to share. [bungston, Oct 26 2005]

It's much simpler than all this - all you have to do is act the part https://www.youtube...watch?v=4Objn0IiL9o
Oh...[jaksplat] already pointed this out, above. [normzone, Mar 28 2015]

       At last, a sensible way to fight zombies.

       You could spray the zombies with "essence of dead ants" and then the ants could do all the hard work."   

       Would a zombie covered in your product try to eat its OWN brain?

       its a bit of a leap in the dark to say its the smell thats putting them off, it could be the taste of zombies - throw some herbs and spices into the mixture too.

       This is great, but I want to know why you don't have a bunch of people in here screaming that zombies don't exist. (see 'paranormal anticipation obfuscator'.)   

       Hmph.

       It's the shear humor of the thing, greenie. Ideas that are zany and everybody knows baseless can sometimes do pretty well if presented well. It's a difficult navigation, sometimes, but can be done. He's avoiding all of the argumentativity and just striking for oddball fun.

       The autoboner has uncharacteristically failed to make an appearance. Perhaps he/she/it is a zombie, and thus has been scared away by this one?

       I would feel far happier with a deodorant that made me smell like a zombie. This would render me untouchable in the event of a zombie attack and probably in all other events too.
