Know Your Idols #10 Wichita & Little Rock

by GClarkHellery
Witchita, along with her sister Little Rock, work together to survive the hunger (and snapping cannibals) of Zombieland. She’s a girl who knows you need more than just weapons to survive the apocalypse. Witchita shows us how to rock a pump action shotgun whilst constantly using her smarts to get her own way (and duping the less smart Columbus and hilarious Tallahassee).

What’s her deal?
Before the infection which caused relatively normal people to turn into crazed, cannibal people Witchita and Little Rock survived as con artists. However, after the apocalypse the sisters are still using their brains to make sure they get what they need, conning Columbus and Tallahassee not once, but twice out of their weapons and transport. Whilst most people would either dig in and try to establish their life in a defended settlement, or cross country to return to family, Wichita realise that in order to survive the apocalypse, a girl needs to have fun, and aims to take her sister to the ‘Pacific Playland’ – what else would you do when the world ends but ride the rollercoaster?

They say
Wichita: Let’s play the quiet game.
Columbus: I’ve actually been meaning to ask you, have you been to Columbus, because I’ve been trying to…
Wichita: Have you never played the quiet game?

Wichita: You have just survived the zombie apocalypse and drove half way across the country… where are you gonna go?

With many characters in zombie movies having less heart than the crazed hoards most recent victim, Witchita wears her heart on her sleeve and uses this to her advantage.
