zom·bie also zom·bi

Okay, here are the definitions of zombie from the dictionary:

n 1: a dead body that has been brought back to life by a supernatural force [syn: zombi, the living dead] 2: (voodooism) a spirit or supernatural force that reanimates a dead body [syn: zombi, zombi spirit, zombie spirit] 3: a god of voodoo cults of African origin worshipped especially in West Indies [syn: zombi, snake god] 4: someone who acts or responds in a mechanical or apathetic way; "only an automaton wouldn't have noticed" [syn: automaton, zombi] 5: several kinds of rum with fruit juice and usually apricot liqueur [syn: zombi]

n. [Unix] A process that has died but has not yet
relinquished its process table slot (because the parent process
hasn't executed a `wait(2)' for it yet). These can be seen in
`ps(1)' listings occasionally. Compare orphan.

I totally match definitions 4 and 5. I am a mechanical and apathetic automaton and I do so enjoy a rum drink with fruit juice and apricot liqueur, preferably with a little umbrella and lit on fire. I'm also a process that has died but not yet relinquished its process table slot. Oh, definition 3! Snake god! Wanna see my snake? Bend over!!
