Ok that’s it. I’m officially declaring it the end of the world. You don’t have to work today.
In the wake of the Miami Zombie story I talked about last week, we have ton’s of new cases popping up where people are using and abusing the human body for very zombie like stuff. There is so many news reports of people going bat shit insane that you don’t need my weekly report to keep up with it. You can’t get away from it.
So I decided to change things up a bit at least just for this post. Instead of picking out stories to write about, I’m going to just write and pick stories that back up the stuff I say. I mean seriously. You think I can go through over a thousand news articles in one week based on the crazy stuff that’s going down? I didn’t even try. I’m going to tell you that strait up.
So we now have the Miami Zombie who ate about 75% of a man’s face, the Maryland Zombie who killed his friend and ate his heart and part of his brain, the New Jersey Zombie who eviscerated himself then decided to throw his guts at the police, and yet another face eating (or at least biting) in Louisiana. Most of the news however is focused on the story of the Miami Zombie. Reports are coming in from everything from the victim’s identity and his family finding him after 30 years of disappearance, to Eugene’s girlfriend blaming Voodoo for his actions. And how about the spot of the attack being featured in a bus tour of Miami?
In the middle of all this, no one’s talking about the less gruesome zombie stuff. How about the dead Brazilian 2 year old who sat up in his coffin, asked for a drink of water, and then died again? I mean bodies moaning we have all heard about, but the kid said a complete sentence, and then died again! What the hell? Gun stores are obviously doing pretty well after all this news. Who would have thought a zombie could boost the economy? And people are even going to greater lengths to be sure they are safe from the apocalypse. A set of zombie proof condos in Kansas have sold out. I was actually stoked to read about that one because I saw the condos on a TV show once and I was hoping that they would do well.
But really with all this zombie stuff going on we will always have the naysayers speaking out against the sensational. The CDC of course is denying the existence of a zombie virus or disease. Many people are saying the grouping of the events is nothing new. Stuff like this happens all the time, but it’s getting more press than usual. Also the grouping of such items together is in human nature but it doesn’t mean the end of the world.
I don’t know about you, but I believe more and more every day that this whole Mayan Calendar thing is real. What do you guys think?
