Zombies ― Are You Prepared . . .

So I’m hooked on the show The Walking Dead which, to those of you not in the know, is about zombies.  A zombie, according to Wikipedia, is an animated corpse resurrected back to life by mystical means.  The term is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli.  (Which, coincidently, is also the definition of a politician.)

Having nothing better to do, I Googled zombies and to my shock and amazement the second item on the list was this:  CDC- Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response: Zombies. Jiminy Crickets!  If the CDC thinks we need posters and pamphlets describing the benefits and means of preparing ourselves for a potential zombie apocalypse, then we better get prepared!

If you prefer a more hands on approach, Michigan State offers a class called:  Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse: Catastrophes & Human Behavior, a seven-week course where students participate in an end of the world scenario where they must adapt or perish. . . I wonder if you get your money back if you perish.

I should be alarmed by these revelations but zombies are like #67 on my list of stuff to worry about behind catastrophic asteroid collision and the possibility of a worldwide chocolate shortage.

Besides, the vampires would take out those zombies in a heartbeat . . .
