    More like “No face”.

    How the heck did the various soft tissues end up still attached, and so randomly? And what ARE those circles on the chest?

    What’s on the table? How annoyed will the barmaid be when she has to clean up the beer and popcorn he tries to consume?

    GSSxn: As in the old joke: Skeleton walks into a bar. Bartender says “What’ll you have?” Skeleton” ” A large beer and a mop please”.

    Is there a draught in here?

    @THX 1139: ‘This wind goes right through me!’

    @L.L: Alternative version of the old joke – ‘I admit it, I really can’t hold my beer.’

    @GSSxn: The barmaid usually leaves a large bucket under his barstool, waste not want not. A word to the wise – if you go there the following day, don’t order what he’s been drinking.

    “Do you serve spirits?”

    When you order a craft beer and find out it is 9% ABV.

    @THX#6 I think the zombie just groaned.

    Should be in a tiki bar drinking a Zombie.

    “In a complete volte-face, zombies decide they prefer beer to brains.”

    “Shut up, liver. You’re fine.”

    A mix-up at the printer’s office…
    The novel THE DRUNKEN UNDEAD a.k.a. A BEER BEFORE THE GRAVE, released on the same date, hilariously had a domed futuristic megacity on its cover.

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Unlike many other “themed” bars, this one has real atmosphere. (A particularly thick and fetid one, at that).

    GSS ex-noob: I’d venture his organs are well-pickled at this point. As to their placement, I’m unsure: crazy glue?

    John Barleycorn Must Die

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Jane: Looks like he did. So the sequel song is “John Barleycorn Must Hang Around the Pub”?

    *throws stale popcorn @THX*

    Depending on how attached or not his neck vertebrae and skull are, he might be able to actually do a volteface.

  16. Bruce A Munro Says:

    But John always comes back next year.

    (Perhaps that explains the odd pattern of decay: he’s not decomposing, he’s regenerating.)

    Great posts and ripostes today—GSS all around! My only thought is, what’s up with the foreshortening on his right arm? It’s more bizarre than the viscera.
