The Nightmare Begins

It started out small: one or two, here and there.  A trickle, really  But it was obvious that wouldn't... couldn't... last.

Soon, they were coming in ever-greater amounts.  The trickle became a stream, then a torrent, then an unstoppable horde.

Slowly they moved, but inexorably.  None could stop them, none could hope to contain them.  When the horde stood at the gates, all hope seemed lost. 

But just when it looked like the insane mass would run devour all in their path, four heroes stood in their way.  They faced the ravenous beasts and held their ground.

The staff of the Duck U Bookstore was ready for Fall Book Rush.

1 LOL.  But I knew where this was going before I was done reading the second sentence.  But remember, no matter how zombie-like the students may be, you aren't allowed to shoot, smash, saw, or otherwise maim/dismember/destroy them,  If you end up with blood or brains on your clothes, you've done it wrong.
Good luck!
boooooks...

2 Congratulations! (And now that all the work is done, they can assign you a new manager, right?)

3 Or promote you with a fat raise!

(hey, it could happen.)

4 The beleaguered staff is both confident-looking and well-armed in that final picture, but they are lacking the crucial element which would ensure their survival.  They have no rubber-duckie!

I love this. :-)

I ordered my grad school books online, so I'm not pestering any hardworking bookstore employees. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if my grad school *has* a bookstore.
