So im watching Resident Evil with the lights off and my Kermit the Frog blankie. And thats when I finally figured it out.
I was walking home from work the other day and I saw a bunch of red goop on the sidewalk. It looked like a kid had taken a ketchup bottle and squirted it in a zig-zag pattern on the sidewalk.
Except it wasn't ketchup. It looked like somebody got stabbed.
I looked over and saw more blood drops. Leading away from the squiggles. So I tracked them for another half block until they had seemingly stopped at the intersection.
I crossed the street and sure enough, more blood. I didn't have to follow it very far until I came up to a really, really big spot of blood right in front of the bar.
"Who gets stabbed, and stumbles to a bar?" I thought.
Then I looked closer, and there were actually foot prints in the blood. Only they lead away from the blood. Almost like somebody had ganged up on the stab victim and mauled him.
Something wasn't right.
What does all this have to do with Milla Jovovic and Resident Evil? nothing. Except I remembered that this weekend was the Zombie Pub Crawl in Fargo. An event where bar patrons dress up in full gore like zombies and hit the town.
So what would've been a stab victim was probably someone making changes to their costume, heading to the pub. And the footprints? Probably bar patrons leaving for the night, tracking the fake gore with each footstep.
What a relief to know a murderous knife wielding maniac was just a blood soaked mob of zombies.
