Richard III and Zombies

No, it’s not another mash-up, it’s two stories from the same city in England. To whit, Leicester, where under a seemingly innocuous parking lot were found the bones of the hated King Richard III. According to the New York Times,

Richard Buckley, the lead archaeologist on a project to identify the bones, told reporters that tests and research since the remains were discovered last September proved “beyond reasonable doubt” that the “individual exhumed” from a makeshift grave under the parking lot was “indeed Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England.”

But what if Richard had come back as a zombie once he had been disinterred? Would he have been smacked down quickly, or could he have taken over the city? Well, according to one concerned citizen who sent a letter to the city council, Leicester is singularly unprepared for zombie attacks. The letter reads:

Dear Leicester City Council,

Can you please let us know what provisions you have in place in the event of a zombie invasion? Having watched several films it is clear that preparation for such an event is poor and one that councils throughout the kingdom must prepare for.

Please provide any information you may have.

Yours faithfully,
Concerned Citizen
