Paparazzi=zombies…you know, now that you mention it…

By now you might have already heard that Woody Harrelson had a very recent run-in with a paparazzo at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.  Not exciting.  But what really made this story riveting was his excuse (excerpt from

“I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character,” Harrelson said in a statement issued by his publicist.  “With my daughter at the airport I was startled by the paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie,” he said.

Yes. Quite understandably.

More importantly, though, our Woodster is once again on the cutting-edge of socio-political issues.  This time, leading the way in a campaign to uncover the truth about the paps, and that indeed they are just a bunch of zombies with day jobs. Kind of makes sense, when you think about it.  1) They travel in packs 2) They tend to grunt a lot 3) They often wear tattered and ill-fitting clothes/generally look sloppy 4) They typically take the lurk and stalk approach.

Anyway, regardless what the truth may or may not be, he scored major points with me for tossing out all the cliche excuses (I was on painkillers, my therapist is on vacation, the dog ate my homework) and courageously went right for the most awesome excuse ever: a zombie made me do it.  BRAVO, Woody, BRA-VO!
