As if this bloody chaos weren’t bizarre enough, it gets weirder still: All of these events happened in the same week.
Naturally, the Internet wants to know: is it — being, you know, The Zombie Apocalypse — finally happening? According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the answer to that question is officially no.
“If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack,” CDC Director Dr. Ali Khan notes on the agency’s website.
Still, conspiracy-minded readers may wish to note that former U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) recently told reporters that “cannibals” have finally overrun Washington, D.C. Considering the week’s news, someone may want to get on that story asap.
