QUOTE said:
Are you prepared for the impending zombie invasion?

That's the question posed by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention in a Monday blog posting gruesomely titled, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse." And while it's no joke, CDC officials say it's all about emergency preparation.

"There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for," the posting reads. "Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That's right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you'll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency."

The post, written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan, instructs readers how to prepare for "flesh-eating zombies" much like how they appeared in Hollywood hits like "Night of the Living Dead" and video games like Resident Evil. Perhaps surprisingly, the same steps you'd take in preparation for an onslaught of ravenous monsters are similar to those suggested in advance of a hurricane or pandemic.

"First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house," the posting continues. "This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored)."

The article tells you to deal with Zombies in the same way you'd deal with a natural disaster.

Yeah because I'd fight off a hurricane with a pick axe and a sawed-off shot gun.

Awww shit, I knew this day would come.

Luckily, I have a shelter for just such an occasion and Resident Evil has taught me many Zombie-fighting skills.

Very shrewd play there CDC. Notice how all the precautions add "could also be applied to a earthquake". This is a joke article title to get people to read info about preapring for real natural disasters.

It is clearly a play to force you to prepare for real emergencies by using something many people will read and pay attention to.

It's another news submission thing, dumbasses. Fox News is just fishing for more bullshit stories. Saw this on /x/ the other day, damn this spread fast.
Wait, holy shit. It WAS.

You guys may think this is stupid, but I'm praying this is real. I would LOVE a Zombie Apocalypse. As long as they're not the Zombies from 28 days/weeks later. They're too fast. Zombieland Zombies... uhh yeah sure, they stumble while they run.

I would love it if I got to at least see one real zombie before I died.
