In a recent conversation I was asked what the best words to use to describe killing zeds were. I didn't have an answer. Putting down? Re-deadening? De-brainerizing? I'd be curious to see what terms people suggest.

Slaughterate. Gickify. Necrolize. Administer field expedient encephalectomy.

Really, any reasonably descriptive verb works well as long as it's paired with the the phrase "with extreme prejudice."

Git, as in "Git that one!", "Did'ya git "im?," "Git him again, he's still moving!".

I think I like re-deadening the best so far.

I would also like to throw in, corpesifying, braining ("Sorry I'm late, I had to brain a few zeds on the way"), and because I'm been watching too much Supernatural lately, "gank".

To use one of terms that Tinderbox uses in one of his stories.... KT'd (Killed Twice) I always thought that was a good one... Maybe KA'd (Killed Again) Pronounced "kaaed"

I like acronyms they are short and can normally be said with ease.

I always use the phrase

Creating Putrification and Liquescense.

It's from The X-Files.

But what's wrong with 'Making dead things deader' ?

KA'd [kay aayd] is good.

PIC. - Permanently Immobilized Corpse.

I PICed two on the way in.

He died, so I PICed him before he could turn.

I'd say go with the least emotionally loaded possible imo, de-animate.
