grave helmet

What with all the anti-zombie devices posted recently, I fear for the well-being of my possible future undead self. So, I'd like to be buried in one of these thick full-face steel helmets.

I haven't studied the definitive George Romero texts myself, but I understand that zombies can only be stopped by head shots, so the obvious precaution if you *are* a zombie is some heavy-duty head protection.

I don't know how zombie eyesight is supposed to work but, in case it is some sense supernatural, I wonder whether the structure could be made stronger by dispensing with eye-holes. You could also reduce the vulnerable mouth-hole a great deal by including among the grave goods a battery-powered food processor and a drinking straw.

Liquidised and straw-fed bun for you! Health and safety is a topic the dead do not seem to take seriously enough

Ubie, we in the Motherland are not completely ignorant of events in the Colonies, and Ned Kelly is well-known here as a hero, and a spirited example of what the human soul is capable of when driven by the internal flames of righteousness.

His rendition of "Two Little Boys" often moves me to tears.
