Depends on what you call "censored". This is off the top of my head, so 
a detail or two may be askew. When the story was first published, the 
word "dead" was not used in Dell comics, so a zombie was defined as "a 
man who won't stay done fer". When it was reprinted, black dialect 
wasn't used, so the definition was changed to "a man who won't stay dead".

Is one of those uncensored? Which?

Quack, Don
