It's all fun and games, until I run someone over.

From a link at CNN, Road Signs Warn of Zombies: "cameras caught many drivers slowing down to read the signs as they approached. Some read, 'Zombies ahead! Run for your lives!'"

Funny, but if I had been driving through there, I guarantee you I would have completely freaked out, and quite probably run someone down while screaming "Die, you inhuman monster!"

Little known fact about me: I love zombie movies, and am at a constant level of cat-like alertness for zombie attack. (And only zombie attack, sadly, any other crisis I'm as unprepared as anyone else. Zombies I've got, though.)

So please, think twice before panicking extreme zombie-phobes like myself, won't you? And, it probably says something about our times that "zombies" are the boogieman du jour; considering we used to be afraid of alien or communist invasion...

So THAT'S why you have that chainsaw in your car!

Tip: If you are not named Ashley J Williams, avoid chainsaws in these situations. Fuel costs, rev time, splattering...

Not good according to Brooks, one of the leading authorities on the topic.

Oddly enough, seeing that sign would've caused me to have a panic attack as well before I ratioanlized the whole thing out. That 4 minutes of panic however...

Ha! I saw that news report -- the photos of the signs are priceless. :-) I think if the electronic signs in Indy ever said anything about zombies, though, the average Hoosier would just be like, "Yeah? So what ELSE is new?"
