Right after it got posted somebody submitted it to the Fail Blog Win! where it was highlighted as well. Since then the Fail Blog Win! has given it some more thought and posted a follow-up proving that sadly zombies can swim so you are clearly not safe anywhere.
Somebody found a clip of a swimming zombie from the 1979 movie, “Zombie” who attacked a shark and used it as a quick transportation vehicle (aka, rode on its back). I think the only thing scarier then a shark riding zombie is if the shark also had laser weapons attached. If it comes to that then we are really in trouble.
Of course the comments and the debate are still raging on over at the Fail Blog Win!. According to one guy there was a panel set-up to debate the issue at a recent anime convention to discuss the issue.
We will just need to wait and see but until the scientists come back with results of their extensive testing, play it safe. Get yourself a kayak, canoe or a paddle board and wait out the apocalypse as long as you can.
My firend Mike sent me this photo of the outdoor shop that he works at in Waterloo, Ontario. He convinced his boss at the Adventure Guide to change the sign to read, “Zombies can’t swim. Buy a Paddle board.”
This comes from a recent post we chatted about a while back where something similar was posted at a marina.
Adventure Guide has had some witty stuff on their sign in the past. Back in January it read, “Ski wax on. Ski wax off.”

Though I can’t be 100% sure, my zombie movie education has taught me that this sign is 100% true.
If I owned a kayak shop I would make and sell t-shirts with, “Zombies Can’t Swim - Get a Kayak” on the back in a heartbeat.
To help further your own zombie survival skills you might remember we posted a quick lesson on how to turn your kayak or canoe paddle into an effective zombie weapon with the simple attachment of a chainsaw.
You will thank me later with all this helpful advice today.
Looking for that perfect gift for your wife’s anniversary? Get her what you have always longed for. Not one, not two but three Type 42 Destroyers, HMS Exeter, HMS Southampton and HMS Nottingham had recently gone up for sale to anybody who wants to buy them. They will sell as a lot or individually if you only want one. No word on bulk purchase discounts.
No word on the price but it honestly can’t be that much as the website has an “Add to Cart” button beside the boat listing. I’m imagining it to be in the $35-50 range.
If you have budding plans of using it to sail around taking over the world you should note that the destroyers have no engines and the generators/pumps have either been removed or are broken. Don’t let that hinder you though. Any evil genius should be able to overcome that minor problem.
I know this guy is already planning on picking up another one to go along with his destroyer kayak.
His doctor suggested paddling to help with his anger management. I think its working.

I have no idea if the photo is fake but it has been making the rounds on the internet over the weekend. If it's a fake they did do a good job putting all the pieces together including the small collage of memory photos of grandpa out kayaking.
The forum on Reddit is all abuzz if bad and goofy puns. Here is a brief sample:
"At least the funeral seemed to go swimmingly."
"Making jokes at a funeral, canoe believe this guy? That is definitely a paddling."
"Give him a stern look and thwart his plans."
"I think we should all take a bow for our efforts."
For ducky facts for extra points and admiration from your friends:
Update: Rob gave it 32 seconds more thought then I did and quickly concluded that it doesn't make sense that ducks feet wouldn't have blood vessels as the tissue would just die. I can't believe I got dupped by funshun.com! The story as to why ducks feet don't get cold is interesting. There are a bunch of good links below in the comments. Apparently they have a type of vein heat exchanger to warm up the cold blood as it flows back into the core.

Politicians love getting out with the people. Water + canoe or kayak = a classic photoshoot. Here is a quick photo round-up of powerful people on the water from that past couple of years.
Let’s start with a classic. President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy was vacationing in New Hampshire back in 2007 when paparazzi saw in him out canoeing. It made the front pages of the newspapers back home but not before a wee bit of airbrushing to eliminate those love handles. Photo credit: dailymail.co.uk
