Because I believe in being prepared, I'm putting my Zombie Survival Team together before it's too late. The positions of need are:
Trusted Lieutenant: Must be comfortable questioning leader's decisions while always having his back.
Tank: Must have cool nickname (e.g. Tex, Cannibal, Big Sexy) and be able to dual-wield anything.
Hot Chick: Must be willing (read: eager) to sleep with leader when shit looks hopeless, have faux regret, then do it again after survival is assured. Must work well with Slightly Less Hot Chick.
Slightly Less Hot Chick: Must provide competition for leader's affections. Glasses and latent bisexuality a plus.
Nerd: You're bait. The sooner you realize that, the better off you'll be. Ability to throw together a semi-palatable meal is preferred, but not required.
Black Guy: Must have large repertoire of wisecracks about being the only black guy.
Coward: Must skin out at the worst possible time and die horribly. Your unintentional sacrifice must enable the rest of the group to get away.
Hidden Badass: Must rise up and lay waste to the undead when all seems lost. Being aware of your badassness will automatically disqualify you. Therefore, this is the most difficult position to fill.
Old Guy: Ability to repeat same three stories about non-specific “The War” with minimal rest and produce cigars seemingly out of nowhere. Bad knee/back/hip must not slow you; constantly bitching about it is acceptable.
