If You Gotta Kill Zombies, Get The Right Tool For The Job

Thanks to Joerg Sprave at the Slingshot Channel, we now have the ideal weapon for Jonah Ray to wield in the case of the inevitable zombie attack, a combination slingshot and zombie hammer:

If zombies are coming at you, you’ll be glad to have this at hand. There’s a spike AND a steel ball smasher on one end, and a slingshot on the other. And it even has a skull ejector lever so you can free it up from the zombie you just skewered (which malfunctioned in the test, but, hey, no big deal, easy to fix). The various melons and pieces of Ikea furniture used in the tests stand no chance against the power of that thing.

Every home should have one.

  • HA! I kind of don’t believe his promise at the end there.

    I get that he’s a slingshot guy, so more power to him on that, but this did give me a great idea for an even more ideal zombie weapon: A naginata with a collapsible crossbow attached to the handle. Yep.

  • 1) I agree with Kilesduan that the best weapon is always Batman.
    2) What is the slingshot channel and why is this the first I’m hearing of it? And when is Comcast going to make it an NBCU partner so that E! can start doing cross promotion with it?

  • Foiled by technology. I meant to add –
    3) While Jorn’s construction is far superior to any one I could ever make – I have concerns about the length of the spike. Will it really penetrate the skull properly? Skulls are tougher than melons aren’t they? I could be wrong, I’m not a doctor. I mean what happens if I swing this thing and it only makes it in part way because of my lack of strength. Perhaps he can consider creating an aluminum based one for someone more petite like me. Like a bat.

    your pants Kilesduan – I met the noun not the proper noun)
    4) Good one On the naginata Reed. I too am a big fan of the cross bow.
    5) The real question is what is everyone doing about self defense? What are
    people doing running around with all this flesh exposed? I understand that chain
    mail is too heavy to keep you nimble but come on? Maybe neoprene? At least put
    one sweater – cove up that neck people! Otherwise you’re just asking for it and
    deserve to be Darwined out.
