Bonking zombie is back

A few years ago I discovered that vampires were more than undead monsters that populated horror novels. There actually is a vampire sub-culture, with live human beings who enjoy drinking human blood.

But I thought zombies were safely(?) in the realm of the undead, until I read this article BONKING ZOMBIE IS BACK! Residents live in fear after gogo is found dead in house of sex . . . | DailySun blog:
Last year, sex in the house of the Veeplaas zombie led to a mother, gogo and little boy being taken to places of care.


Stories about self-confessed zombie Mthandazo Klaasen (39) having sex with his 69-year-old mother spread like wildfire in Port Elizabeth’s Veeplaas kasi three weeks ago.
Does the Daily Sun know something that the rest of us don't? Even the Zombie Research Society says that:
1)The modern zombie is a relentlessly aggressive, reanimated human corpse driven by a biological infection*; 2)The zombie pandemic is coming. It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when; 3)Enthusiastic debate about zombies is essential to the survival of the human race. (*A subset is the living zombie, defined as a relentlessly aggressive human driven by a biological infection.)

Though that footnote about the subset could possibly fit the case that the Daily Sun reports on.

Until recently most reports I've seen about zombies in the press have undoubtedly been of the undead variety, and there has been no question of "biological infection".

The reports have usually concerned people who have been accused of being witches because their neighbours allege that they have seen zombies working in their gardens. The witches, it is said, resuscitate corpses to do chores for them.

But a self-confessed zombie?

That's a new one on me? They even have a picture of him, looking, well, quite un-undead.

I wonder if any reporters of the Daily Sun have seen his death certificate. Have they been to his grave to see if his body has been exhumed? Actually I don't expect journalists from papers like the Daily Sun to research or verify their facts since their main purpose is to make money out of spreading idle gossip in print. But it would really be interesting to know something about the new zombies. And precisely what a "self-confessed" zombie is confessing.

This reminds me of the following which I read somewhere (I can't remember where) last year:

Sounds like the satanists are rampaging at the moment.

Zombie infections seem to me to be essentially a reinterpretation, a new confabulation of the trope to fit a more modern, supposedly scientific, worldview. By excising the supernatural element and replacing it with some sort of parasitic pathogen, such as really do exist in the wild…there are some scary ones out there in the world of fish, slugs, crabs, and bugs. There is a crustacean that eats off a fishes tongue, then attaches itself to the stump and functions in the fish's mouth in place of the tongue, living on the food scraps. Then there is another very nasty isopod that attaches to a crab host, shoots a slug of it's own neural tissue inside, that then worms it's way to the crab host's neural system, attaches itself, grows, and takes over the crab's growth and reproductive system, causes genital restructuring so the crab can't mate with it's own kind, creates an opening for parasitic males within the shell, then reprograms the crab's reproductive system to drop its the parasite's fertilized eggs. So, there is plenty to work with in nature as a starting point.

Classical zombies are considered to be undead, but strictly speaking, this is not actually so. The Voodoo priests/priestess create zombies with a drug of which one major component is derived from the ovaries of the puffer fish. It is an extremely potent neurotoxin, easily lethal. It is use in such a way as to bring a person very near death into a state of suspended animation that looks like death without the aide of sophisticated medical instruments to say otherwise. The retrieved bodies, while still alive, remain for a long time under a strong pharmacologically induced hypnotic state, which makes zombies very compliant. Combine that with various superstitions and you've got the classic zombie. It is not unheard of for zombies to eventually regain their faculties, but in such a culture they believe themselves to be undead and under the control of whoever "made" them that way.

In South America there is a plant grown conspicuously by the homes of "witch doctors/shamans". It is a cousin of the common potato, but the pollen of it's blossoms are very potent hypnotropic drugs, whose use has been discovered by criminals in Columbia and Venezuela. It makes a person very compliant, lasts about 3 or 4 days, and degrades the memory of that time. So, a thief will spot a lone tourist, blow a snootful of pollen at the victim, wait for it to take affect, then over the next couple of days have him empty his atm and bank accounts, then leave him to wake up broke, naked (or nearly so) and foggy headed behind a rural pig pen somewhere.

Magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and family problem and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.
