Booze makes you zombie proof, and due to this fact science now has an explanation as to why zombies are never seen on new years day, and for different reasons in Washington DC on any day.
So load up your basket with that twelver, those bottles of Jack Daniels and tequila and know that the drink you pound could be the one that saves the lives of you and your loved ones. Just walk to and fro to the store though, no need in killing innocent people while driving drunk. Oh, and lastly, drink responsibly. Word has it that drunks make terrible zombies too. They stagger way more than sober zombies, but on the plus side they are harder to spot on skid row.
