Good point Peter about the water but then again that is the same ballooning principle if they ate too much flesh and were not defecating. I think that it would be a virus that causes death or being infected leading to the undead being slow because their dead, the human flesh is just an insatiable desire but doesn't satisfy anything as they could get through a few bucketfuls of ribs and still want more. If they fell in water and were the original slow zombies they'd be more likely to be swept away and rot quicker in the speeding water and as Peter said total immersion could have it's own pitfalls like blowing up as the water fills any passage ways! If we take the new Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later they could be seen as only lasting for a short period after infection or death so body functions could still be very good and falls away as time progresses. I never believed in the long term dead walking, a bit like vampires couldn't make the whole world vampires or they'd starve, if all became zombies then the ultimate end is not a planet of zombies but a decaying world were humans have died out or been eaten out!
very good point!
Then we could say that zombies "do defecate" due to the fact that the intestines will be acting just as a set of connections of rotten pipes. if the zombie eats, the human flesh will be "pushing" the older "food" that already was there, being expelled, of course, by the anus. Not for a normal biological/digestive act, but forced by "circumstance".
could be as simpe as that?
