Why does every society, club, organized movement, volunteer group, support group, cleaning crew of people who shouldn't be cleaning anything, etc. have a pecking order? Like it's in our nature to size each other up and create a human spectrum of pecking power.
This hierarchical system was first described this way by Thorleif Schjeldeerup-Ebbe who observed that defense and aggression in the hen is accomplished with the beak. Literally a pecking order. And that's literally hysterical to read. I think it's the word beak.
So I'm looking for photos for the blog and I come across a zombie walk. Fun-loving, zombie-loving folk living the horror dream of a mass-shuffle of zombie power. And then I see these guys...
Oh, I get it... a horde of zombies, so there must be the humans who fight them, or rather, dominate them. A zombie pecking order. I swear to GOD, if I showed up as a zombie at that event and saw these guys with their plastic guns, I would walk up and start biting.
