To answer your question, the original poster never indicated what style of zombies he was referring to (old or new or original), so I based my original answer off of what would be considered the cultural "norm" for zombies - slow, brainless, not very intelligent. If the original poster is going to leave critical, important details out of his post/question, what's to say that we aren't supposed to assume what style of zombie he is talking about? I thought of the classic monster movie zombie, which per the cultural norm is what most people expect when they think about them.
I don't think of the modern zombies (the ones that are intelligent and use tools) as zombies. Again, this is my opinion based on the older movies, but the newer fast and smart zombies aren't zombies in my mind. And if the original poster isn't going to clarify what style of zombies we are talking about, how am I to know we aren't talking about the older ones? I stated it quite clearly in my post that my idea of zombies don't use weapons or tools.
