Title: The Snacking Dead: A Parody in a Cookbook
Plot Type: Zombie Apocalypse Parody with Recipes
Ratings: Violence-4; Sensuality-1; Humor-4
Yes, this is a cookbook with a mythology: a zombie apocalypse mythology that mostly mimics the world of The Walking Dead. Although, there is a passing reference to Game of Thrones when a character warns that "Winter is coming," and I'm wondering if Charlie, the growling, half-pint dog, just may be an oblique reference to the skinny-but-snarly character in Revolution.
The "Introduction" is a photograph of a smart-phone displaying a news feed with the headline, "Mysterious Outbreak Causes Restaurant Havoc" and warning people not to attempt the Heimlich maneuver on restaurant patrons exhibiting these danger signs: "bluish skin color, bulging eyes, inability to speak, and/or noisy breathing."
