"Eats and Drinks" is a better place for this question than "Zombie Biology"?

My sense is that zombies are a lot like trolls in where and when they decide to take a shit.

I don't think they poop.. Their body functions have stopped working so I don't think they process food anymore, they just eat to kill...

But if they don't excrete, how can they eat and not explode?
Or is it like what Robert Vaughn said in Chud2 "they just nibble".

I suppose if it is a viral infectionion, they eat to spread the virus and use the tissue for food. They constantly consume because of the need for fresh meat? Also, the body isn't completly shut off, it still walks and chomps. Maybe if enough was stuffed in it it would be forced out of the other side? I would think that some measure of parastalsis in the troat would still be used, because they swallow the meat into the stomach, following that, there may be some parastalsis in the upper and lower intestines that would alow the excess/rotten flesh to be excreted. Now is it at will, or just a steady stream of soylent brown?

Ragers? I'd say yes because the ain't really dead.

Undead zombies? I don't know. As soon as I meet an undead corpse, I'll be sure to ask. :lol:

So let me get this straight. . .

They grunt requiring vocalization.
They walk requiring hundreds of muscles, coordination, and balance.
They chew and swallow which requires more muscles to push the food down.

All that seems to work okay.
But the minute they die they become constipated beyond belief?

I think Max Brooks adressed this. When zombies eat, they keep eating to the point that their stomach ruptures. Then depending on the level of decomp, it all just spills out of what ever hole is in their abdomen.

I forgot. They see and smell. Two VERY COMPLEX actions requiring much brain function. But their assholes (probably one of the simplest functioning parts of the bodies compared to sight and smell) ...
Well that just isn't possible.

I bet you think girls don't fart either. ..lol :mrgreen:

I lol'ed :lol:

On a related note, I heard girls don't sweat, they glisten.

On topic, who says zombies even swallow? Maybe they just masticate tissue and it tumbles out of their mouths when they go for the next bite.
Come to think of it most zombies are mostly whole anyway, which leads me to the conclusion that they were only nibbled at to begin with.
