State of Decay

Not only is it banal, it's wrong.

Aah, perfect treatment of anyone using that acronym finally happens. Good one.

I wonder how many people won't get this one :P
"Swaaaaaaaaag, Swaaaaaaaaaag."

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, beautiful. Just beautiful. Well done, very funny HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH LOLZ to be had for sure. HA

Well YOLO... well maybe twice in a zombie world. Of course a technicality can be argued on that.

Zombies cant catch you if your #swag is good.

also, if you think about it, he didnt yolo, you could consider being a zombie as another life.

but yolouyaaz doesn't has a good ring to it.

Well, technically, zombies aren't living, so any attempts at ironic humour are sadly misplaced.

YOLO

You Only Live Once...

Took me a while, and I don't think I really "get it".

I have never heard these supposed masses saying "YOLO". I have only heard the masses complaining about people who say YOLO.

Me too...same with Justin Bieber a while back.

Well, YOLO so why not complain about YOLO? Seriously, YOLO so just do it!

... On a more serious note, I can only agree with your assessment of never having heard, or otherwise witnessed, someone actually using the term YOLO in an unironic or non-sarcastic fashion.

Then both of you have obviously never been on twitter.
Or the internet.

YOLO

You Only Live Once...

Yolo (you have it correctly: You only live once) is usually used before doing something really daring, stupid and/or dangerous in an attempt to say that it's as good as time as any to do it because you don't get a second chance at living.

Unless you become the Living Dead.

Well, technically, zombies aren't real, so it's not exactly factually inaccurate.

They are the lucky ones.

Whippersnappers. Back in my day, we had only one thing to say in this situation. "Alright, chumps, let's do this."

Also? Zombie Mardi Gras. *shudder*

I think, some people have good taste and simply avoid sites that have that epic a level of D-bag frat***ery

I had no idea what this was until now either and i've been online since the days of er.. 'modem music',
so.. i doubt it's a newbie issue.

My friends call me Yolo Swagins

Is zombie mardi gras full of gay zombies?

9999th post

YOLO? That's the first time I've ever heard (read) that one. Took me awhile to get this one.

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Ernst Stavro Blofeld. They told me you were assassinated in Hong Kong.
Yes, this is my second life.
YOLT, Mr. Bond.

Good strip as always fellas. Personally though I'd like to see a return to the multiple strip extended arc like a year or so back with Erin seeing imaginary characters and such. Either way, keep up the good work guys!

Hang on...I've SEEN this before! Yeah, there was another webcomic with the exact same setup and joke...except when the guy said 'YOLO' he meant it as a caution (i.e. Hey, we only live once so if we screw this up; we're dead!)

Here it is! http://www.virtualshackles.com/343

BTW NOT suggesting plagarism, just observing.

Yeah, when I saw this comic I instantly thought of that other one.

Why do I get the impression the guy who got turned into a zombie is a new breed of zombie that uses echo location via his favorite catch word in life?

I will see your YOLO and raise you a game genie newblet.

Great strip, as always. Oh, by the way, did Ed die in your game?

Yeah, I actually had to look up YOLO a few months back because people kept complaining about it. That's the weird thing, while people keep saying they get so annoyed by folks using the acronym, it's really only through these complainers that I even came across it in the first place.

Smartass sense, tingling!

Zombification is a ethnographic phenomena reported in Haiti whereby a person is said to enter a kind of trance and becomes highly suggestible, often believing themselves to be a dead person. It's not clear why this happens or even whether it actually does happen in the way the few ethnographers who have reported it claim it does.

For a long time, this was what "Zombie" meant in popular culture. See films like White Zombie. It's only later on that Zombie became conflated with the idea of dead people coming to life, which is a common belief in many cultures.

So actually, "zombies" in real life are living. Maybe not culturally, but certainly medically. Then again, it's also unlikely they ever really "died".

I actually have some friends who use YOLO like there's no tomorrow, so for example they'll say it when going to the grocery store. They haven't done it in a while but when they do, I swear I feel my brain cells commit suicide.

Ah modem music..... Brings back such memories... Having to coordinate your internet use with the phone use of others, calling people and getting screeched at.... Kids today have no idea about that.

To them I say:

This is what happened EVERY time you wanted to go online back in the 1990's

YES! Thank you! I was waiting for this to pop up. One of my favorite Bond movies.

And today's strip is one of their funniest. made me laugh the loudest in along time.

Great to see people playing State of Decay. Love it, it's the best zombie survival simulation I've seen in a long, long time.

YOLT just doesn't have the same ring to it...

Maybe YOZO, you only zombie once? Sounds like a new Japanese dance craze.

As a former HvZer, I have to say, it's not these guys getting themselves killed that's annoying so much as when they take a bunch of other people down with them because they were too stupid to listen.

Stupid humans make for stupid zombies (in the game, not usually in the mythology.)Smart humans brought down because an idiot tagged along, on the other hand...
