Zombie Apocalypse...No?

Following up on Wednesday's post warning everybody about the impending zombie apocalypse, there's apparently been enough of a mild panic created by the recent outbreak of cannibalistic craziness that the Centers for Disease Control (who, you may remember, posted a helpful list of ways to prep for said apocalypse last year) has put out a statement reassuring the public that no, there's no such thing as a zombie. Per their spokesperson: "CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)."

So, y'know, that's a relief.

(Of course, if every zombie movie ever made is anything to go by -- and we all know Hollywood would never lie to us just to make a dramatic point -- that's exactly what the CDC would be saying in this situation...hmm....)
