My word: ‘Zomedy’


What do you call a comedy movie or TV show about zombies? A ‘zomedy!’

This is a word that I am giving to the entertainment world. In years to come when you see the word ‘zomedy’ in Entertainment Weekly or TV Guide, you will know that it started here, on BFD.

In five or six years when ‘zomedy’ has made it into common usage and the people at Webster’s decide to include it in the dictionary, you can say “I was there when it all started.”


Don’t believe the interweb when it tells you that ‘zomedy’ is already a term. it’s likely that they took a time machine to the past with the expressed intent of starting that term.

So when next you watch, give credit where credit is due. BFD. The retroactive creator of the term ‘zomedy.’ I think that’s only fair since I created a word that apparently already existed.
