What. Is. This? Target manufacturers ZMB Industries is selling a "zombie ex-girlfriend tactical mannequin target" that bleeds when it's shot. Complete with bust exposed in pretty pink bra. Called "The Ex".

As Salon points out, "How do you know it's a "zombie" and not just a bleeding woman wearing a half-torn shirt? Because ZMB Industries say so, that's how."

The product description at Clear Creek Shooting Accessories informs us excitedly that the "ex girlfriend bleeding zombie" is "Good for over 1,000 rounds!".

Here is some longer-form crap used to sell the pretend murder of your ex girlfriend/every woman that ever wronged you/"zombie":

"Be warned, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - but a man scorned is nothing to mess with, either! A young gent from Louisiana, we'll call him Andre to protect his identity, was deeply committed to his one true love and her to him, or so he thought. While partying with her friends during one particular Mardi Gras, she took several suitors over the course of the festivities. Andre felt something odd indeed, so he paid a visit to his great aunt, Marie, who helped him see the truth. With a few eggs, candles lit and kiss upon his forehead, her voodoo curse was set in motion. Late each night while lying in bed, a smile would appear across his face, for a slight breeze would travel through a cracked window bringing with it, a faint whiff of decay and a unnatural cry of regret."

And here are some reviews of The Ex, from really happy guys with healthy minds:

Bryan: "I love that this target looks like Britney Spears and it bleeds when I shot it."

John Davis: "The dark haired one looks like my bitch ex-wife, who I HATE! I can't wait to shoot her face off for taking my s**t."

Ralph Cox (Big Money Grip): "This Zombie Bitch is awesome, reminds me of a girl I knew in High School..."

Finally, just in case Bryan, John Davis and Ralph Cox (Big Money Grip) aren't sufficiently teeming with resentment towards women just generally, "Each Patent Pending "The Ex" Zombie... is hand painted to accurately resemble an infected human... so you really feel the hate."

P.S.This is how many women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends each year in the US.
