Okay, so you work in a typical office and the zombie apocalypse is upon you. These are your options men.

Garrote wont work because they don't breath man! I don't think any company still has CRT monitors any more, so the flat screens are kinda flimsy. Stapler is best choice. But I'd pick up the scissors because at least I could break skin with them.

While I believe more effective impromptu weapons could be found in a office environment, from your list..... I would take the keyboard and use it as a shield utilizing the cord to attach it to my forearm medieval bracer style . Then take the corded mouse and attaché the cord to the metal stapler for a improvised mace. none of this would last very long, but I only have to make it to my vehicle to gain actual weapons.
As of now I bet you got me wrong

Scissors, pencil, screwdriver. IIRC, Zombie Go Boom was able to successfully shove all of them through the side of an test head.

We have a paper cutter at the end of our row. It's a real old school one and this topic prompted me to examine it more closely. There are two bolts holding the swing arm, and they're only finger tight.

Swing arm machete for the win!

I hope all of you BRAVE MEN are proud of yourself for being willing to sacrifice that poor secretary in order to save your own worthless skin! Just think of how she would reward you later on! :clap:

5 lbs ABC fire extinguisher is my choice. Spray the eyes to confuse and whack them in the head with it. Fall back build a wall of file cabinets to funnel them away.

My admin is a male. Brave new world. And I wouldn't be interested in his 'reward'.

Poor Rob is still totally z-fodder in a him-or-me scenario, but that would be equally true with the AVP in the next row. Yeah, baby, yeah! :crazy:

I'm sad you only had male admin/secretary in your office. :gonk: Mine was super cute & could have made the centerfold of Playboy! Definitely worth saving! :wink:

majorhavoc,
totally agree. We have one in the back of the office and I've often wondered how hard it is to get that thing off of there, you know, in case of zombies.
But given my options, I choose monitor because I've got two in front of me, duel wielding? :awesome:

None of the above :) My office has it's own exit to the parking lot and my truck is no more than 5 metres away as I type :) Off to my BOL!

That being said, I do have a cart in my office for moving equipment around so I could at least use that to hold off a zombie or two while I get to the door.

Stapler + some duct tape, quarters, anything small and heavy and metal. Boom, functional club/sap.

But I'd take the arm from the paper cutter over that.

Head for janitors closet, get one of those heavy duty mops they use, or the pushbroom. the handle makes a good fighting staff.

Anything I can find, and hope they are the slow moving zombies because if they are those running mothers it won't matter what you have, your Zombie tar-tar!

Just depends. Is she a Helga/Beverly, or a Jessica/Lindsay/other hot chick name?

Is this thread supposed to be titled "Rate your secretary for hotness"?
In my day, we didn't have virtual reality.
If a one-eyed razorback barbarian warrior was chasing you with an ax, you just had to hope you could outrun him.

Nope, it's about choices.
I can't imagine sacrificing a woman (or a child) for my own safety.
The previous post was sarcasm, but I guess it didn't work too well. :oops:

Yours wasn't the only one.
Several women have complained about the jokes lately. They get tiresome.

I had a hard time figuring out a tactful way of mentioning it... not sure I was successful.
