Will eat away at your free will, or are they more likely to increase our farming productivity? Who cares - what everyone really wants to know is who has the best song about these walking corpses.

Therefore, PoF is hosting its first ever Zombie Song-Off just in time for Halloween. Readers can listen and vote to determine who will walk away Winner of the Pieces of Flair 2006 Zombie Song-Off (and proud owner of a fabulous zombie prize pack).

If in the process the PoF Zombie Song-Off raises some awareness for the Allen Institute for Brain Science, well, all the better.
