Okay, so... one of my co-workers is a huge fan of horror movies in general, and zombies in particular. I mentioned that I changed the background on my desktop to a zombie theme for Halloween, and she responded by showing me her background, which was Michael Myers (of the Halloween film franchise).
"Michael Myers," I said. "Nice. And still kind of a zombie, even. Admittedly, a little more intelligently malevolent than the usual sort..."
Co-worker 2, from the next cubicle, says: "But how can a zombie be intelligent?"
There's a momentary silence.
"Well," I tell him, "I'm about to launch into a forty-five minute discussion of the metaphysical underpinnings involved in rising from the grave, and I don't think any of us need that." There are murmurs of general agreement. I continue, "The short version is: it depends on why they came back."
I love my workplace.
