Over 50k people have received their first taste of Rails by playing through "Rails for Zombies" ( Only problem is when they start to play around using a zombie scaffold:

rails generate scaffold zombie name:string

This generates controller which improperly singularizes zombies, so the instance variables are all @zomby. As a side-effect of this form attributes don't work. The parameters properly send "zombie"=>{"name"=>"test"}", but the controller is looking for params[:zomby].

For the sake of new people trying to learn Rails who email me wondering why their first app doesn't work, and... well.. for the sake of the zombies, can we fix this tragedy?

Zombies were people too

I totally disagree this commit! This is just a machiavelian plan from @Gregg to insert the word zombies directly into Rails! Don't listen to him, he's one of them!

Our plan is working! ;)

best. commit. evar.

OMG Gregg, and also thanks goes to LH guy for merge it.

Interesting and hilarious, you do not miss the opportunity to make a joke. The outgoing side of the world Ruby on Rails is pretty cool. Very good! Congratulations!

Yet one more reason why Rails is THE BOMB!
