It's no joke! No less than the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also known as the 'CDC', has come out with a bonafide 'Zombie Apocalypse Plan'.
Without further ado, I urge you to check out the LINK below for your reading pleasure...or displeasure...depending upon your point of view, that is.
Probably it's all in 'good fun', this legitimizing of the 'zombie' genre so popular today, by what is supposed to be a drop-dead, serious, 'scientific' governmental entity.
One hopes and prays that our friends at the CDC remain ever-vigilant for that which is REALLY scary and for REAL diseases such as the rare and unheard of case of a previously healthy 14 year old boy in Uruguay being killed by western equine (horse) encephalitis.
But why be so gloomy?
For now we enjoy this chuckle, with the hope that any 'real life' zombies encountered are every bit as 'slow and sloppy' as their movie counterparts and thus can be readily dispatched.
I can't think of any known medical illnesses, conditions or syndromes at the present time which completely 'resemble' zombie-ism, but if one does come to mind, rest assured I will write about it here.

As it is, a number true 'zombie-believers' are convinced of the existence of our flesh-eating friends, and that is no joke to those who are truly afraid.
Perhaps the CDC decided that, 'imaginary or not', it would be best to address the zombie phenomenon once and for all and put some minds to rest.
Yet...I don't know about you, but checking out the CDC LINK below is not exactly comforting!
All that 'emergency-preparedness' talk is SKEERY!
It is said that 'art imitates life', though in this case, I would say more correctly that it is 'science' that is now imitating art.
And if that isn't weird enough, the CDC timed the release of this article to coincide with what some predict to be Judgement Day, May 21, 2011.
What are the feds trying to tell us?
Crazy though it all is, maybe it's all in good fun and we all have nothing to worry about at all.
Maybe this zombie page is all just a ploy to get people to read up on 'preparedness issues'.
Then, again, maybe there ARE zombies amongst us and we are being warned.
God Bless You
