Our Favorite Zombie Haikus

We've still got zombies on the brain, so we're bringing back a few of our favorite zombie stories from the past. This collection of fan-written zombie haikus was originally posted on February 4, 2010. Enjoy.

Zombies and haikus. They go together like peanut butter and jelly, like sex and death, like Lady Gaga and sharp metallic objects. As part of our day-long celebration of George Romero's 70th birthday, we've asked fans to send us their best odes to the undead via Facebook and Twitter.

Check out our favorites below. Think you can do better? Post your own haiku in the comments section that follows!
