LOL. Clever. Or the CDC knows we're cooking up some particularly nasty zombie virus in a lab somewhere....
"Hey, guys, why is this bio-lab now off-limits to civilians, and surrounded by the Army?"
"Oh, no reason. Hey, post this new list of disaster preparedness notes on our website..."
I wonder how George Romero feels about the 'sudden' zombie craze. I feel like he created something incredibly popular, but gets little respect for it.
