  • Cordless Power Drill + Cat-o-nine Tails Whip + Backpack + Car Battery = A Spinning, Whirling, Electrocuting Zombie-Shredding weapon.

    Go get a Black & Decker cordless drill (the one with the swappable battery packs, because you'll need several of 'em to survive). Head on down to the local sex shop and pick up a cat-o-nine tails from the really @#$%ed up section of the store ... get one with hooks or blades at the tips. Rip some copper wire out of the walls and run leads from the metal hooks/blades down to the whip's base. Solder that b!tch to a steel rod & then jam it up the handle of the whip. place a conductive washer/nut around the rod & mount that bad boy into the drill. Solder two leads to the washer/nut and run the leads back to your backpack that's carrying a few car batteries. Make the connections and fire it up.

    So now you have weapon that if it doesn't shred the zombies to pieces, it'll at least shock the crap out of them hopefully stunning them long enough for you to go back and shred them to pieces with the whip.

    This weapon can be wielded in a variety of fashions ... out in front like some sort of demented "riot shield", or over head like the whirling blades of a helicopter for those "Oh $#!%"!!! moments when you're surrounded and need 360 degrees of zombie shredding goodness. And then finally it could also be wielded in a non-spinning fashion as a cat-o-nine tails whip with electrified points for precision carnage, but what's the fun in that?
