Reader Poll: What Will Zombies Do With Settlement Dollars?
Remember back in February when we told you about the 8th Circuit decision reinstating a lawsuit brought by a group of people who dressed up as zombies and wandered the streets of Minneapolis to protest against "mindless consumerism," and were arrested for their trouble?
Well, the city has settled with the zombies. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the City Council has approved a payment of $165,000 to settle the suit. One of the zombies is quoted as saying he's thrilled the city is being held accountable, and the City Attorney stands behind her cops, but says, "you never know what a jury is going to do with a case."
Here's what I'm curious about: what do zombies do with money? It's not like you can go to the 7-11 and buy a brain taquito. There were seven zombie plaintiffs. Figuring their lawyer took a third, that leaves $110,000. Dividing that among the seven would leave each with $15,714.29.
If you were a zombie that just came into 15 grand, how would you spend it? Let us know in the comments.
