Zombies don’t require acupuncture. They say they need all kinds of things. Cups of water. A Dum-Dum from the bowl on the reception desk. Zombies suck up all the energy in a room. If there are any around wherever you live now, you’ve already observed this for yourself.
But give me a break, zombies. If you can manage to cast off this mortal coil and still be up walking around, that’s a pretty good indication you’re good at making do. You’re resourceful. You can’t need much compared with us who are living. You definitely don’t need acupuncture.
