The Krampus?

As if I thought we hadn't seen enouogh weirdness out of Europe in the form of strange Cryptids.

Austrian children have been living in fear of the Krampus, a strangely annual beast, for centuries. These shaggy beasts live in the Austrian Alps and coordinate with Santa Claus in order to punish -- even feast upon! -- those kids ending up on the infamous Naughty List.

Here's the legend:

But here's the really strange thing. Once a year, these intelligent beasts come down from their mountain fastness and parade through the streets in order to scare the beejeezus out of the local tykes and put them back in line!

Proof of the Krampus:

It looks like there are different varieties of Krampus. Or maybe this clan of Krampus simply do more body grooming:

What do you think? Shotguns with slugs for these?

The Boomstick

There is nothing more satisfying than nailing zombies with the awesomely powerful 12 gauge shotgun.

But it still takes training to make the shotgun the ultimate weapon against revenants.

Fortunately, Magpul has addressed your shotgun training needs too.

Time to transition to your pistol

So we've seen Magpul's ads for their tactical carbine course, but they do the same for the pistol, and let's face it, they will come a time when you need to go for your pistol.

So it pays to be prepared to use it correctly.

But if you're relying on your pistol to get out of a tight situation with the Hungry Undead, I advise you save the last round for yourself.

Make the Most of Your Carbine

Magpul Dynamics has released several sets of "How to Shoot Guns Real Good" instructional DVDs.

There are two sets of Tactical Carbine DVDs, in which the instructors provide quality info about running your M4gery at peak efficiency.

I know, you think it won't really matter during Zombiggeddon how tacticool your movement, reload, and immediate action drills are. The Walkers aren't going to be doing coordinated movement. That's just half the picture. You need to be on your game in case "fellow" survivors decide the apocalypse means they can throw all the rules of civilization out the window. Not everyone is going to want to play nice with you, Zombie Hunter. That's who these drills are really for.

But you'll also find that proper movement speeds up the kills against the Shambling Hordes too. And really your warm-blooded speed is the most important asset you have against a steady tide of the Undead. Kill them all before they can get to you.

Holiday Specific Advice on Dealing with the Undead

More vintage advice, but this is still all too timely.

Found Footage: Home Invader

It's said that some zombies will continue to ape habitual actions from their past lives. For example, stories of zombies trying to make coffee are not uncommon. But this found footage is even more eerie:

You'd Better Not Pout. You'd Better Not Cry...

Recently leaked films from a Finnish export firm show the truth behind Santa Claus. It isn't pretty, and if you're under the age of 12, I strongly advise you to tune out now.

This old and revered business, Rare Exports Inc., has been engaged in the grey market trade of shipping actual "Father Christmases" world-wide since 1739. Or... so they claim.

The first film appears to be a sales film, showing how Lapp hunters track and bring down a free range Father Christmas before training the beast to deal with children in an appropriate manner.

The second film, however, demonstrates the dangers of improper care and handling of the purchased Father Christmas.

Add one more dangerous, supernatural beast to your hunting list. And as an aside: What is going on in Scandinavia? Lately we've learned of trolls in Norway, and now "Father Christmas" cryptids running loose in Finland. What's next, dragons?


Look, you can't go hunting zombies in your birthday suit. Personally, I recommend motorcycle racing leathers as outerwear for hunting because of the durability. But you needs something a little more comfortable next to your delicate skin.

So, some T-shirts for your base layer, or for lounging around your bunker:

Major League Zombie Hunter T-Shirt, available from Zazzle along with an assortment of related designs.

Also cool is the new Doomsday Damsel licensed from Bawidamann by 7.62Designs

I'm sure she looks familiar to our regular readers. You can bet Flint and I already have our T-Shirts and proudly wear them as often as possible between washes.

Caught on Film in Louisiana

This unexplained image recently started making the rounds on the Internet. One of my sources tracked its origin to the Wildgame Innovations Facebook page. (Don't ask how I work my magic; a good magician never reveals his secrets.)

The photo created enough of a stir to make it onto a Louisiana television morning news show.

Now, for some reason, these ladies are skeptical. But it bears a striking resemblance to other footage floating around the internet.

So, what are these things? Zombies? Maybe, but they look different to me. Aliens? I doubt it. Why would aliens cross vast interstellar distances to wander around our backwoods naked? Ghouls? More likely.

But whatever they are... I bet I can kill them with fire.
