Sometimes, the inspiration for polls comes to Walski in the strangest of ways. This time, it was the coming together of two bits of news via Twitter, while he was waiting for his lunch to be served this afternoon.
The first news bite (pun intended) concerns a new graphic novel to be released next month, entitled Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion. Yup, someone came up with the brilliant idea of what The Beatles would’ve been like if they were zombies – three out of the four, at least.
With the success of recent classics given the zombie treatment, like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, it was inevitable that The Fab Four would be subjected to the same manner of immortalization. It was only a matter of time.
Oh, and Shaun of the Dead? Classic!
The second bit (or bite) of news was somewhat more mundane – concerning Walski’s favorite political punching bag, Ibrahim Ali.
In the wake of BN’s defeat in Sibu yesterday (yet another by-election), Ibrahim Ali once again came out imploring the BN-led government to review financial aid and and development projects for the Chinese community (via The Malaysian Insider).
Yeah, yeah… more of the same ‘ol from the independent MP. Walski did say it was mundane. Yawn.
But, mash the two bits of news together, throw in a pinch of salt, and liberally stir the concoction, what you get as a result is a rather offbeat opinion poll...
(what if there were a zombie holocaust, and more, in the full post)
So, what do you think – in the unlikely event of a zombie holocaust, what would Ibrahim Ali most likely be? Walski guarantees you that myAsylum is probably the only blog where you’ll find the word “zombie”, and the name Ibrahim Ali in the same poll. Or blog post. Or both.
You can vote either on the sidebar (to the right of this post), or via Twtpoll.com, which hosts the poll.
After putting this poll together, it occurred to Walski that the poll wasn’t quite as frivolous as he’d originally thought. He won’t explain why just yet – suffice it to say that the poll, and the possible responses, do reflect reality, in some twisted Walski-fied way.
But here’s a hint:
All will be explained when we analyze the results, which should be at the end of May, or at some point earlier, if and when Walski gets tired of the poll. In any case, the plan is for the poll to remain open until May 31, 2010.
Or, until a horde of zombies devours the Twtpoll server. Whichever is sooner.
