Zombie Current Events 6/26/12June 27th, 2012 |
These attacks where people are stripping naked and biting people are getting a little bit over played. Not that they are not news worthy, but there is another report every week of someone donning his birthday suit and trying find out if humans really do taste like chicken. This time it’s Charles Baker who decided to play zombie in, you guessed it, Florida. So if the zombie apocalypse does start, I have no doubt that Florida will be the first hit. Considering over halve the state of Florida is either right at sea level or slightly below, my recommendation would be to shoot the zombies as they come up from Miami, while we dig a canal across the state. We build up the side that faces the rest of the United States and trap all the zombies in the canal. Then It will be like shooting fish in a barrel.
Another type of zombie attack happened last week; this one however was a lot less painful. Hackers in St. Louis decided to change an electronic road sign to warn drivers of a zombie attack. Sure we all have seen it before, but let’s face it I would love to see the faces of some stuck up city drivers reading a sign like that for the first time. Don’t tell me it never crossed your mind.
Considering the government explicitly denies that there is any threat to a zombie apocalypse, recently more than a handful of communities, states, and even federal agencies have done zombie drills. The most recent one to be held was on June 21st as the entire state of Main participated in a zombie drill. When I say the entire state, I’m not joking. From emergency management agencies, to amateur radio operators, even the Main National Guard, down to nursing home employees all did their part to train for a zombie attack. Now of course they say it was all about preparing for epidemics in a fun and out of the box sort of way. But you and I know what’s really going on. I hope everyone else is doing their zombie drills too.
I often times go a little bonkers when people try to abuse the zombie shtick as a way to make money, but I have got to hand it to KPBS for putting on a well done advertising campaign using zombies. Their donation request commercials were really well done. Nobody seemed to overplay the zombie thing and everyone took it seriously enough to almost give you a feeling that they actually have reported on a zombie apocalypse before. Ok, well they didn’t take themselves too seriously. The jokes were hilarious, watch to the end of the second video. You’ll be glad you did.
That’s all for the zombie news of the week. Don’t forget that if you find a zombie current event you would like to share, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow Dead Future on Facebook and Google +. You can also follow me on Twitter and Google +.
