Thanks to global efforts official government agencies are finally starting to take notice of the threat posed by our favourite undead unfriends, zombies. And for the first time ever, they are finally acknowledging the role of Z-prions.
Now while they do have some good advice, like the recommended survival kit that everyone should have (see list below):
- Water (1 gallon per person per day)
- Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
- Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
- Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
- Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
- Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
- Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
- First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
They do fail to take things quite seriously enough. For instance, what is with that portable stereo. Or is that a toaster? Is this a survival kit or a time capsule? Does it come with an Aerosmith cassette tape? Can it transport you backstage to 1984? If so, will it also tell you how to survive zombie Stephen Tyler?
So many questions, so few answers…
