One of the few disagreements my gal and I have on zombies and how they work is what happens to the meat the zombies eat.

I'm of the mindset that it works it's way down into the guts, but it cannot be processed proper because the acids that break down the 'food' are not being produced, or at least not being produced at proper intervals or at the same potency. This would lead to a 'pile up' in the guts, making for a distended belly, or maybe even a popped stomach lining, guts moving around in ways they shouldn't.

My gal believes since they don't breath or work properly, that it'd just pile up in the throat/esophagus and eventually be pushed back out.

Mine's more graphic (and I find that more fun in zombie-verse stuff) but her's seems more logical.

Thoughts?

I think...not sure but in one of Max Brooks books he stated that the meat is pushed out eventually. If they are feeding alot.

I always thought maybe they feed to slow the rate of decomposition..

I thought it interesting in the series Walking Dead when Darryl gutted that walker to see if it ate Sophia he pulled out a skull of ..woodchuck, muskrat, beaver can't remember what he called it....but how did it swallow something that big? 
Anyway I can't recall in all the movies and books I have seen and read if that particular subject ever got directly addressed. For the most part the Zs just want to chew and swallow even if they have no internal organs. If the body is intact I would imagine the stuff they swallow eventually gets pushed out or they split open and it falls out.

By 'pushed out' do you guys mean out of their throats? Esophagus/etc?

Maybe I'm hoping to much with the distended bellies that'd 'pop' with a touch.
