Turns out that the Walker Stalker Con that hit the Dallas convention center last week was not, in fact, devoted to the city's favorite TV son, Walker, Texas Ranger. Nope. This con was for the fans of The Walking Dead, who came in whatever the collective noun is for the undead to celebrate all things zombie. (A drove of zombies? A swarm? Oh — how about a murder of zombies?)
Aaaaanyway, the con was filled with a bunch of people who seemed inordinately happy to be there, considering many of them had assorted implements sticking out of their rotting bodies, dangling eyeballs, lots of blood, etc. Being a walking corpse apparently isn't as bad it sounds. See for yourself in this video from Jourdan Aldredge.
Sadly, you'll find no Chuck Norris here, though that's probably a good thing, 'cause as everyone knows: When a zombie apocalypse starts, Chuck Norris doesn't try to survive. The zombies do.
