The Joke’s On Me
So here I was, diligently working on a sure-to-amuse-and-offend chart of the similarities and differences between the Rupture and the Zombie Apocalypse, when I stumble upon this while doing my research:
Zombie preparedness is the brainchild, so to speak, of communications staff who noticed that traffic took off when zombies were mentioned during one of its Twitter sessions on Japan and radiation, says Dave Daigle, a CDC spokesperson who led the new campaign.
The CDC in fact does have a history with zombies — at least on TV. Its fictional headquarters were blown to smithereens in an episode of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” after a group of survivors tried to take refuge.
When the CDC is getting in on the lulz, I know it’s time for me to pack it in.
