The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes and his loyal group of friends have made surviving a walker outbreak seem, if not easy, then at least possible for the past seven years. They've taught us that all you need to make it through the apocalypse is a group of strong people around you, a potent machine gun, and a sharp knife. The show, however, doesn't tackle one of the most important nitty-gritty aspects of humans being on the run from flesh-craving monsters: What would happen if fear gets the better of someone and they... well, soil their pants?
I know, I know, it sounds weird, but living in a world full of flesh-craving monsters requires a great deal of self-control, and let's face it, most of us would most likely not have enough time to run to the bathroom after coming face-to-face with a fella like this one:
Admittedly, the zombie apocalypse hasn't come around in real life, but if it ever did, having your pants full of your own waste while trying to run away from a walker would be a big problem. Fortunately, a solution has come around for those who'd have trouble with their bowel movements and bladder when stumbling upon a dreaded walker...
There Are 'Walking Dead' Diapers Available To Buy For The Apocalypse (Really)
I'm not joking. The official The Walking Dead store has put out a listing for "Negan's Own Sh––tin' Pants," large adult diapers that promise to be a "sanctuary for your butt":
Huh, I live in a world where I can buy Negan diapers... I never thought I'd type those words. We are truly living in the weirdest timeline. But if you clicked on this article because of the strange headline and you don't actually watch #TWD, you're probably wondering how in the world we got to this point. Allow me to explain.
During the closing minutes of The Walking Dead Season 8 premiere, Father Gabriel was left stranded right in front of a horde of walkers by Gregory. With nowhere to run, Gabriel hid in an abandoned RV to protect himself. Unfortunately, his relative calm came to an end when #Negan stepped out of the shadows and told him:
"I hope you got your sh––tin' pants on... 'cause you're about to sh––t your pants."
You can get this awesome package for only $19.95. Is it a little pricey for only 16 adult diapers? Perhaps. Worth it? Absolutely. We should add the disclaimer that while the diapers are listed as being top-rated in Pee Pee Pants City, they offer no protection from Negan or Lucille.
This Isn't The First Real-Life Walking Dead Merchandise
Being one of the most popular TV series right now, Negan's diapers aren't the only piece of weird merchandise The Walking Dead has had. So if you're a super fan of the show, you're in luck, because a good amount of fans have used their talents to create a variety of items, such as adult-only Lego figures, a zombie target for shooting practice, #DarylDixon's ID, and even tea for the apocalypse, appropriately named teapocalypse.
Admittedly, those items haven't been officially released by AMC, but they'll still help people delve deeper into the show's gritty environment. Being completely honest, though, none of those pieces of merchandise top Negan's diapers. I mean, when could any of us have possibly imagined that something like that would become a thing?
But indeed, it is a thing. What a time to be alive.
How do you feel about being able to buy Negan diapers? Will you be getting them to be prepared for any walker outbreak in the near future? Let me know in the comments!
