    No chickens mentioned in the report; therefore, no zombies. You can't have one without the other.

    Chickens? I didn't know zombies go for chicken flesh, too.

    Adds a whole new perspective to this exchange between a lawyer and a doctor during a trial:

    Q: "Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?"
    A: "No."
    Q: "Did you check for blood pressure?"
    A: "No."
    Q: "Did you check for breathing?"
    A: "No."
    Q: "So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?"
    A: "No."
    Q: "How can you be so sure, Doctor?"
    A: "Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar."
    Q: "But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?"
    A: "It is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere."
