Government Prepares Citizenry For Looming Zombie Onslaught (No, Really)

An “Only-because-it’s-Friday” post…

The Centers for Disease Control has posted instructions on how to ensure readiness for the upcoming zombie apocalypse. And no, we’re not kidding.

“The rise of zombies in pop culture has given credence to the idea that a zombie apocalypse could happen. In such a scenario zombies would take over entire countries, roaming city streets eating anything living that got in their way. The proliferation of this idea has led many people to wonder ‘How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?’”

The CDC goes on to list zombie emergency kit essentials, such as water, non-perishable foods and duct table. It also recommends picking a meeting place where your family can regroup after zombies invade your home.

Okay, it may be possible that this is all tongue-in-cheek, and that the zombie angle is just really a clever means of preparing people for floods, earthquakes and other genuine emergenies.
