Added DiffLines:

** The book was written out of Mel Brook's fear of Zombies, as he notes they're not some sort of animal or creature, but a force of nature that simply cannot be reasoned with. He makes this very clear in the first few chapters, comparing zombies to a computer that is only programmed to perform one function and can never be hacked.

** The Foreign Legion spending '''three years''' besieged by the zombies and no one figured out that headshots are the only way to kill them. While civilians can give a pass due to their blind panic but these are trained soldiers!

*** Even better, is that after a certain point, the Historical section just states about Roman Zombie attacks, "This was the last Roman Recorded Zombie attack of note, as others were so short or not well enough described to count." Basically, The Romans were ''curbstomping'' zombies so effectively they weren't even taking them seriously anymore. ''Damn.''



** The Japanese attempt to drop Zombies on China, ends before the zombies hit the ground- Chinese snipers, trained to aim for the head, took them all out. The Chinese never realized they were under zombie attack.




to:

** Anyone who tries training zombies. The attempts listed are darkly hilarious.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The book implies that the Zombies' muscles are necrotic, in which case they would be immobile.
** This is most likely a deliberate LampshadeHanging, among numerous others, to just how impossible the zombie phenomenon is in RealLife.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The book encourages you, when on the move, to keep moving. Carry as little as possible, abandon all luxuries, and don't stop for anything. Except for [[BigDamnHeroes rescuing survivors]].
--> Sometimes, logic must give way to humanity.

** If you're taking the book seriously, [[RuleOfFun you're doing it wrong]].
*** For many folk, disbelief may only be suspended so high. See also, MoffsLaw.

** [[TheGloryThatWasRome The Roman Legions]] being able to crush zombie outbreaks for the majority of their reigning period, being GenreSavvy before there was Genre to be Savvy by!

** [[TheGloryThatWasRome The Roman Legions]] being able to crush zombie outbreaks for the majority of their reigning period, being GenreSavvy before there was Genre to be Savvy by!by! And the other best thing about them? They aren't virtually scared by zombies in the slightest-in one tale, an old legion veteran simply pushed a frightened mother and her baby aside and sliced off the zombie's head with his gladius, like it was simply a minor annoyance. ''They have balls. Of Tempered Titanium.''

Added DiffLines:

*** Actually, most of them would've died of thirst long before the infection could be spread along the line that far. More likely, ''one'' zombie bit all of them; if its throat was obstructed, e.g. because one of the crew stuck a blade through its neck, it wouldn't be able to feed and would just keep moving from victim to victim.

** The "Jan. 1993 A.D., Downtown Los Angeles, California" entry is one of the few cases of NoKillLikeOverkill in favor of the humans - after two clashing gangs [[EnemyMine put their differences aside to survive]], they quickly grab the SmartBall, and manage to [[CurbstompBattle kill over a hundred ghouls with no losses of their own]].

However, they're then left with a load of apparently innocent dead bodies on their hands when the police show up...
