The October 29th episode of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, Maher picked a side in the fast vs. slow zombies debate by offering this observation about the current state of the undead:
If horror movie zombies really want to scare me, they have to walk faster. I don't even have to run from zombies. I can saunter, amble, stroll, promenade, stop for coffee at Peet's. Zombies, you may be disgusting, barely ambulatory member of the undead, but so is this guy [image of an overweight man on a scooter chair] ... and he can catch me.
New episodes of Real Time with Bill Maher air live on HBO on Friday nights at 10pm ET.
