But then my erudite colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens made a stunning observation. He says the zombie show is a metaphor for the world in general. For some reason there are entire countries who like to attack other countries. Other countries want the violence to stop, but they can never agree on how to do it. Take a look at the Olympics for example. For two entire weeks several countries set aside their differences, and got together for sports events. They had a good time, and proclaimed that peace is a pretty good idea. But as soon as it was over, Russia invaded the Ukraine.
It can also represent our own country and the constant struggle between the political parties, where no one can agree on anything and things just continue on without any progress except for the accumulation of more debt; and anyone who has a good idea or solution to the mess is immediately shot down. Or, individual humans may feel their lives are just one long pointless battle at work or home or both, and they will never find resolution, and it's fun to see other humans who are having a tough time. So who are you: a zombie or one of those non-zombies? We doggies pondered this concept until we both suddenly got itchy ears.

Then we concluded that trying to figure out the humans and their entertainment is itch-inducing. And that’s a memo.
