Zombie Pecking Order

Why does every society, club, organized movement, volunteer group, support group, cleaning crew of people who shouldn’t be cleaning anything, etc. have a pecking order?  Like it’s in our nature to size each other up and create a human spectrum of pecking power.

This hierarchical system was first described this way by Thorleif Schjeldeerup-Ebbe who observed that defense and aggression in the hen is accomplished with the beak.  Literally a pecking order.  And that’s literally hysterical to read.  I think it’s the word beak.

So I’m looking for photos for the blog and I come across a zombie walk.  Fun-loving, zombie-loving folk living the horror dream of a mass-shuffle of zombie power.  And then I see these guys…

Oh, I get it… a horde of zombies, so there must be the humans who fight them, or rather, dominate them.  A zombie pecking order.  I swear to GOD, if I showed up as a zombie at that event and saw these guys with their plastic guns, I would walk up and start biting.
