A Fifty Word Horror Story by Lori Schafer

The zombies crashed into the house.

“Brains!” they moaned.

The family was gathered around the television, watching. None of them moved.

The zombies scratched their heads. The parents were staring at the screen. The children’s mouths hung open.

“No brains!” the zombies moaned.

And moved on to the next house.

    There´s a similar scene in the Simpsons. Zombies enter the bar moaning brains, then move along. Great story.
