“What do you call a zombie who stir fries?”/“Dead Man Wokking.”

There have been several puns on the title of the fil Dead Man Walking (1995). “I’ve got the best idea for a movie. It’s about a zombie who becomes a chinese food chef. I call it ‘Dead Man Wokking’” was posted on Twitter by Joshua Cain on April 22, 2010. “Zombie chef = dead man wokking” was posted on Twitter by Casey Fatchett on November 16, 2011.
 
A riddle was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on December 17, 2019:
   
Q: What do you call a zombie who stir fries?
A: Dead Man Wokking.

     
“Did you hear about the new Chinese cookbook? ‘101 Ways to Wok Your Dog‘,“ “I found stir fry all over my bed this morning. I must have been sleep wokking again” and “Why is stir fry never cooked on the ocean?”/“Because everyone knows you can’t wok on water” are other “wok” jokes.
