Pub Debate Series: A Zombie Apocalypse is coming… are you prepared?

Maybe you’re a fan of the Walking Dead or perhaps you’ve seen more than your fair share of ‘Doomsday Preppers’ documentaries; one thing’s for sure, you learn a lot about a man who’s thought about how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse.

We asked Aussie men if you had a plan. 32% of you have a strategy in mind, so we’ve shared your top 3 responses below. For the 68% of you who haven’t given it a thought, you might want to grab a pen and take some notes:


  1. Find Rick Grimes

Fans of the Walking Dead will know Rick as a former deputy sheriff who gets shot in the line of duty and falls into a coma, only to awaken in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. In this cult television series, Rick becomes the de-facto leader of survivors in the hunt for a safe haven from the zombies. It appears while you blokes might not be prepared to ask for directions when driving the car, you’re more than happy to defer to an experienced leader when your life is on the line. Now let’s just hope Rick has a Nav Man, eh?


  1. Kill as many zombies as possible

A popular and brave response among male respondents. Your courage to battle on the front line for humanity is to be applauded. If you’re headed into battle, we strongly recommend safety in numbers and the pre-battle development of a secret handshake or signal, known only to humans, so you can test those pesky zombies pretending to be humans on approach.


  1. Grab supplies and head for the hills

For those not wanting to risk life and limb for the sake of our children, we don’t blame you. Some of us are fighters, some of us are lovers. If self preservation is your game, then stick to the canned goods and bottled water. No one’s living very long off the hot cross buns marked down on special you thought were a good idea when you went looting; and for the love of all that is good in the world – pack a can opener!
