After seeing the funny Broken Heart Bunny stencil aimed at iZombies last week, we’ve assembled a quick list of combative techniques to fight the pandemic.

First we must isolate the offender – a pedestrian whose gaze is consumed by the phone, and does not possess the decency to “pull over.”

  • Passive aggressive – purposely bumping into iZombie with the hope that the phone falls and a lesson is learned.
  • The Poltergeist – when alongside offender, shout “Boo!”
  • Shock and Awe – take off your clothes to distract iZombie from glowing screen.
  • The Pickup – walk alongside and say, “while you’re on that thing, can I get those digits?”
  • The May I Have Your Attnetion Please – purchase airhorn. Use accordingly.
