Zombie Apocalypse Now!

This past weekend, a story hit the web and quickly went viral about a guy going nuts in Florida and getting shot multiple times by cops after they found him naked and eating another guy's face. Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy. I, being the forward-thinking type that I am, immediately pegged this as the leading edge of that zombie apocalypse I live in abject terror of. Seriously, it feels like the news story you see playing in the background at the beginning of every zombie flick ever, that all the characters either ignore or tsk-tsk, and then, next thing you know, everyone is holed up in a shopping mall clutching baseball bats and shotguns. Anyway, in what amounts to proof of everyone else being either ahead of the curve (like me) or out of their minds (also like me), I wasn't the only one who made that inevitable linkage between "Naked Face Eater" and "Zombie Apocalypse." And as this compilation from Gawker shows, it's just the latest in a string of recent incidents that surely signal the impending onslaught. Better keep that copy of the Zombie Survival Guide handy! Don't say I didn't warn you!
