Never let it be said that the doctors at the Centers for Disease, Control and Prevention lack a sense of humor – or the sense to find a fun way to teach Americans about emergency preparedness. Hence today’s most excellent CDC offering: Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse.
The concept of zombies, the CDC helpfully notes, has Haitian and New Orleans voodoo origins and refers to “a corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead.”
But even though science can’t answer that gnawing question “Why do zombies like to eat brains so much?” there is much that everyday Americans can do to prepare themselves in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse.
And just in time for tomorrow’s rapture.
