Cracked.com is arguably the most interesting list site in the history of man. Like other popular sites, it is a sentient alien being that feeds off your time. Unlike most popular sites it shits that time back into your head in the form of bizarre and unusually useful trivia. You Might be a Zombie is a small sampling of the best Cracked.com had to offer as of 2010. This book will make you love lists again. Maybe you could die happy without knowing the five stories about Jesus’s childhood they had to cut from the bible (to avoid an nc-17 rating), but it also contains valuable information such as the six cutest animals that can still destroy you, four things your mom said were healthy that can actually kill you, three colors you don’t realize are controlling your mind, and of course five scientific reasons that a zombie apocalypse could actually happen.
Right now, you are probably thinking something along the lines of, that sounds cool, but why buy calamari when Cthulhu is crashing on the couch. The answer is in the title, of course. You don’t even have to read it. Merely having this book on the shelf will make strangers think you are cool and interesting. The 320 pages of face melting awesomeness is a nice bonus and well worth the $0.01.
