Forget the zombies. What's the deal with all these pumpkins and paper craft ghosts I keep seeing everywhere?

I hope you're kidding, because that just sounds stupid and there is no way I'd ever use it, "correct" or not.

Never heard of that before... I didn't realize zombies were in the same category as Fungi...

I'm just attempting to make people believe that there's actually a special plural form of the word Zombie. Maybe if zombies actually existed, my dreams could be realized.

How about fungi... That are zombies? Fungi + Zombies = Zombi!

Mushroom zombies sounds so awesome... It could be turned into a huge franchise that includes comics, novels, fllms, games, everything!

Heh, I didn't spoil anything, I'm just talking about the whole plant look of some of those creatures with their tentacles and coating the walls and stuff. Like fungi.
