The Minneapolis city attorney's office has decided to pay seven zombies and their attorney $165,000.

Well, they keep bringing Favre back from the dead and throwing money at him, so I guess this makes sense.

They were protesting "mindless consumerism" and end up getting paid $165,000....hmmm.
*goes to look for zombie costume*

It is far easier to find cash in a city council than it is to find brains.

I'll bet they get LOTS of parking tickets in the next two years.

Who says Ph.D.s in sociology don't make money!

No kidding, NotSherly. After attorney's fees, they'll rake in almost $20.

I'm glad I live in ND now... that's how MN went broke!

a victory for soulless, brain-sucking carrion eaters everywhere...and his defendants, too!

Headline writers pray every night for the chance to write one like that: Minneapolis will pay $165,000 to zombies

It's not "Headless body in topless bar" but it's pretty good.

SNORK @ padraig!

Brains? We donn need no steenkin brains. We work for the government and we're here to help you.

Before I retired, I used to just love telling people I was from the government and I was there to help them.

Everybody be careful. bonmot's a lawyer and we don't want to make him cry. He could sue us.

"...they were being held on the "crazy" charge of carrying simulated weapons of mass destruction." That's a perfect description of an iPod; it should have been a cinch for the prosecution.

New Hampshire has a similar law prohibiting the "Placement of Simulated Explosives," which is a Class A Felony (15 years in jail). Fortunately, we also have juries who refuse to convict people for popping balloons. Naturally, possession of real explosives without a license is only a misdemeanor.

pad, my dear, that was spectacular.

@ Pad-- I've got my Halloween costume figured out-- it involves zombies and Packer jersies-- nos. 7 and 15

This just in, Brett Favre is still not retired...

Back here is Wis-CON-sin (not WES-con-sin) we’ve mostly forgiven uh – Brent. Well, not 4-gotten him, anyway.

How does one apply to become a zombie? It seems far more lucrative than my current non-profit employment status.

Seems I've been away from the Minne-apple a really long time so this does take me a bit by surprise, except for the minor title that goes "Zombies had No I.D.s" I was a sociology student prowling Nicollett myself mumbldy-mumble years ago and totally remember our professor making us leave our student I.D. cards on the bus for some reason.
