the Canadian zombie embargo

It’s funny you mention these laws because I am an American living in Canada with my wife, and I tried to get a role as a zombie extra on both George Romero’s Land of the Dead and Diary of the Dead; but nooooo, they have to hire a certain number of Canadian actors, and so all the zombies are Canadian. Alas, I don’t have a work permit. I asked Romero about this at a signing and he said there’s nothing that he can do about the Canadian zombie embargo. But, goddamit! What good is Condoleeza Rice if not to fix problems like this?

indeed.  thanks, rufus, for making me laugh.  thread about Canadian film subsidies on reason.

    B, you’re just too quick on the trigger… you completely beat me to the HB III reference…

    question: Can a Zombie still have a birthday? and if so, is he entitled to free chocolate cake?
