The problem with zombies is that seem to be evolving unusually fast.  You can't keep up with zombie lore because it changes so fast.  I'm continually crying out, "Hey, there not supposed to be able to do that."
It's because your only pov is a survivor who likely has stayed put and whose knowledge is very limited.  We don't know everything because they don't know everything.

I don't remember anything but being disgusted by The Exorcist. Not a movie I could watch more than once.
At the time, it pressed the limits of vulgarity, and still does.  The juxtaposition of the sweet child spewing such vile and vulgar language was shocking and I even wondered how it made it past the censors.  Maybe they were only worried about exposing skin.  As I was trying to hang on to my religious faith at the time, dragging God and the supernatural into the vulgarity was extremely frightening for me.  It was also offensive, but mostly it frightened me personally.  I understand the book was written by a priest.  It may have been a rumor circulated at the time.  I never looked it up.

oh-wha Tahn-ah See-ahm.

Am I summoning an ancient being? Is that why you want me to repeat it's name?

It was a Summer Camp joke.  When you "catch it" phonetically, it means "Oh What An Ass I Am".  I was the 2nd to catch on.  A person less honest than I would have said I was the 1st, but I wasn't.

But there was that OMG moment when I did and whispered it to the senior scout who organized the joke.

Which is what happens in the book. Makes you wonder if it happened in the original TV adaptation decades ago if people would have reacted the same way.
