These would be George Romero, Dawn Of the Dead seventies zombies that have to sneak up to catch you by surprise because otherwise almost anyone can out walk them. 

Can't recall any Stephen King zombies, The Stand was man made plague read the unabridged version stands up well today as the day it came out. 

John Carpenter's zombies are on Mars, they may want our women, but not our lottery tickets.

I hear that if you give zombies chewing tabacky they explode.  Have to test that theory.

Don't eat this if you want to lose weight = Fried lard cake.

1 Simple trick to lower your auto insurance rates = stop hitting things with your car.

I kinda agree with Ronnie.  NO amount of zombies will prevent me from playing.

(Unless they are all hovering around the little sliding draw that I have to put my playslips in)

That might pose a problem as they may try to bite my hand as I slide the money into the slot.

In CreepShow, Ted Danson plays a zombie, so that might qualify as a stephen king zombie.( However I dont know if that was a braineating zombie) or just a hole digging zombie.  However, that was a joint venture by Romero and King.

But imdb credits stephen king as the writer.

    According to one website Steven King wrote zombie story called Cell - Your Number Is Up.  Supposedly going to be a movie with John Cusack if it ever gets off the ground.  Somehow an unknown force turns everyone on their cell phone into a zombie.  Sounds like The Signal.  Some of these movies like The Happening even when big budget don't make it.   They should include a zombie holding a play slip trying to give it to a zombie clerk.

      Zombies are the only thing that would prevent me from going out at all. I can brave vampires and werewolves..at least if
      they get you, you retain your thinking skills. If you're bitten or attack by a zombie, you just become a flesh eating, mindless,
      nobody that can't think of anything more than where your next hunk of flesh is coming from. Money isn't important to them,
      blood is...they don't even care that once bitten you're competition. Instead of one arm per zombie, it's one arm per 20 zombies.
      Most states do better than that for competitive players...payouts are equal for the players in most. I'd rather deal
      with the state monsters.
      I'll keep myself safe, stay in and play when the world is back to normal again. If I need to help get it that way, no problem.
      I can aim for the head. Dead

        Ok, here's the setup. 

        We're becoming a zombie nation.  The zombie plague could become humanity's exit apocalypse.  Or the army and CDC could fix it, who knows?

        The dead are walking, so far not many and they are the shambler zombies you can evade by walking faster. 

        Even if the end of the world is coming, gonna need money for as long as it can still buy stuff, right?

        How many zombies would there have to be in your local population to prevent your going to the store to buy lottery tickets?  Doesn't count if you're going for supplies anyway, we're taking tickets only, well maybe tickets, chips and a six pack.

          I read that book just last week.  It was OK, I guess, better than most of his recent work...which isn't saying much.

            I would go out regardless of the zombie's as I may be able to buy them off, if not, once I claim the funds I can use the cash to barracade my door.

            I have to agree with Chinook. (God rest his avatar.)Blue Angel

            As long as female zombies are not there, I will go to the store.

                   If I can evade some Zombies by walking faster?  I'd go get my lotto tickets.  I'd just be packing some major fire power just in case I run across a swarm and need to mow some down to get to where I'm going.

                      It appears you might just have to "compete" with the zombies for lottery tickets.

                      Hey BobP, can you get some royalties on the idea perhaps?LOL
