from a dad's view


It was a computer virus, the virus that swept through all of wordpress.  At first people thought of it as just another virus causing harddrive damage and inconvenience, but it was more, so much more.  It was the RYAN-O-Virus, a virus not to be contained, and had no cure.  You were warned! You were told not to visit the site asmalltowndad, but did you listen NO! And now look at you… Your a Blog Zombie!  Hair falling out, brains turning to mush, eye’s sinking and turning gray, and the hunger… oh, the hunger for more Ryan-O-Virus, you cannot stop!  it will be over soon, soon all will be effected and we will all be blog zombies, feeding off of each others blogs.  No more flowers, no more ducks, and absolutely no more damn barns! Nothing but skulls, rot, evil, gore (not Al Gore) don’t want to get that scary, and cute little birdies, um oh o.k. no cute little birdies either!

Warning: Ryan-O-Virus shots are now available at Walgreens, CVS, Ice Cream shops, corner venders, Fruit Markets, and local bars.

Thank you Beth for holding the challenge and I hate to say it again, but this was done last minute because I forgot that we were leaving today for our yearly Halloween camp out. I won’t be able to check everyones post until monday but I’m already excited and can’t wait. Also, I know that I have missed several blog zombies and I apologize, but I ran out of time.

Happy Halloween to all and be safe!

    • Thanks!
      This was fun but I wished that I would have thought of it earlier and put a little more time into it. And I had very little to go on for references, but I hope that you get a chuckle out of it.

  5. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHA! Ryan, you outdid yourself. This is amazingly wonderful. I recognized everyone immediately.

    You are so talented and clever. Love us all as zombies. Perfect for Halloween.

    thanks for a great Friday morning smile.

    • Thanks Carol,
      I’m not sure how I brought smiles to everyones faces, when I made you so ghoulish. But as long as I made you smile, especially this year, that makes me happy!

      November 1, 2010 at 5:29 am

  6. LOL. I love it. I didn’t know about this, and when I looked I thought, “Is it possible that might be me?” The non-exsistent nose gave it away. I would love to see you zombie-fy my whole family.
    Oh, and I do find Al Gore a little scary as well! tee-hee!
    Have fun this weekend!

    • Thanks Sis,
      With the Metaphase staged Brain, and the tiny nose, I hoped that you would recognize yourself! Happy Halloween and tell the little ghouls the same.

    • Thanks K,
      Some of the props, I hope, made it a little easier to recognize each individual.

    Back for another peak. This is just so cool! Is that my peacock feather you included :)) Hope you had a fun camp out. I didn’t do this challenge but I promise to do the November one for sure!

    October 31, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    • Yep, that’s your peacock feather. I thought about doing your header with just the eye and feather zombied out, but I found photos of you and your sis and used that. Your both beautiful girls and don’t deserved to be zombiezed (may not be a word).

      November 1, 2010 at 5:36 am

  10. bwahahahahaha. i thought i recognized some of those sewn-mouth souls. cool fun and well done. . .

    P.S. …is there any truth to the rumor that Ryan-o-virus is spread through digital ink?

    November 1, 2010 at 5:29 am

    • Thanks Rick,
      and lets just say… be scared! be very very scared of the Ryan-o-virus, it has no boundaries! LOL
