Blogger and friend of the site, Bryan Hansel from paddlinglight.com is currently taking pre-orders for an awesome t-shirt he got designed.
You need to purchase one of these shirts. Just think of it as a public service announcement for your friends to get prepared because when our zombie overloads finally descend it will be too late for everybody.
This whole zombie swimming thing originally came out of a post I did back a year ago where I fantasized about somebody making a t-shirt so I’m glad Bryan came through for us. Shortly after I posted the original article, a paddling/hiking shop in Kitchener,Ontario got famous for 3 minutes when their store marquee was featured on the Fail/Win! Blog.
Bryan’s black t-shirts with white ink are selling for $16.99 with $6 shipping to U.S. addresses. If you live outside the U.S of A, contact Bryan and he will let you know shipping costs.
Order it here.
Right after it got posted somebody submitted it to the Fail Blog Win! where it was highlighted as well. Since then the Fail Blog Win! has given it some more thought and posted a follow-up proving that sadly zombies can swim so you are clearly not safe anywhere.
Somebody found a clip of a swimming zombie from the 1979 movie, “Zombie” who attacked a shark and used it as a quick transportation vehicle (aka, rode on its back). I think the only thing scarier then a shark riding zombie is if the shark also had laser weapons attached. If it comes to that then we are really in trouble.
Of course the comments and the debate are still raging on over at the Fail Blog Win!. According to one guy there was a panel set-up to debate the issue at a recent anime convention to discuss the issue.
We will just need to wait and see but until the scientists come back with results of their extensive testing, play it safe. Get yourself a kayak, canoe or a paddle board and wait out the apocalypse as long as you can.
My firend Mike sent me this photo of the outdoor shop that he works at in Waterloo, Ontario. He convinced his boss at the Adventure Guide to change the sign to read, “Zombies can’t swim. Buy a Paddle board.”
This comes from a recent post we chatted about a while back where something similar was posted at a marina.
Adventure Guide has had some witty stuff on their sign in the past. Back in January it read, “Ski wax on. Ski wax off.”

Though I can’t be 100% sure, my zombie movie education has taught me that this sign is 100% true.
If I owned a kayak shop I would make and sell t-shirts with, “Zombies Can’t Swim - Get a Kayak” on the back in a heartbeat.
To help further your own zombie survival skills you might remember we posted a quick lesson on how to turn your kayak or canoe paddle into an effective zombie weapon with the simple attachment of a chainsaw.
You will thank me later with all this helpful advice today.
