The Zombie Apocalypse is coming, people!!!
Well, at least SOME people believe that’s true…and they’ve gone to extensive lengths to devise methods for surviving the destruction of mankind!
You’ve probably heard of doomsday bunkers, which might be effective at keeping zombies out of your living space in the case of an outbreak. But what if you have to go outside?? You know, to gather supplies and whatnot?
Have no fear! A chemist has devised a potential solution for that.
In the style of Bill Murray dressing up like a zombie to blend in for Zombieland, Dr Raychelle Burks has come up with a similar idea that might fool zombies into thinking you’re one of them.
The doctor has concocted a perfume called Eau De Death that literally smells of rotting human flesh.
The thought of it makes our tummies turn, but if this stuff helps people survive…we won’t judge you for wearing it! Ha!
According to Dr. Burks:
"This cologne is an evasive method, which when coupled with zombie mannerisms - as seen in The Walking Dead or Shaun of the Dead - would be effective in avoiding a zombie attack when moving among a zombie horde. One could also wear it when casually waiting out the zombie apocalypse so as not to attract the attention of a roaming horde of zombies. If we’re really trying to mimic a corpse we have got to get the smell down to perfection. Nobody wants to be the guinea pig that spritzes on the death cologne and realises it doesn’t quite work."
Yeah. We bet.
Also, did Raychelle have to sniff dead people to devise this corpsey cologne??
Her ultimate undead repellant consists of two or three cringeworthy chemicals; she explains you would definitely need putrescine and cadaverine to get the job done, but adding a bit of methanethiol would probably give the stench a topnote of perfection.
