Kan. emergency officials warn of ‘zombie invasion’

October 4, 2011


— Kansas emergency management officials are urging residents to prepare for an invasion of zombies as part of a national disaster readiness campaign.

October is Zombie Preparedness Month, a tongue-in-cheek campaign to get people nationwide to prepare for any type of disaster — including attacks by killer zombies.

The point is to get people to take an all-hazards approach to preparing themselves for things like tornadoes, floods and terrorist attacks.

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management says if people are prepared for zombie attacks, they're ready for anything.

Several Topeka events are scheduled as part of the awareness effort, including an information booth Saturday, Trunk or Treat on Oct. 27, and a Spooktacular Safety Fair and Zombie Preparedness Day on Oct. 29 in downtown Topeka.

You never have to reload a machette.

machette,sword,knife all are weapons that will get you infected real quick. 1st, are they fast of slow zombies. Slow would be better for a machette but you have to get close and close can get you bitten. Also, after you lob off the zombie's head, you could get sprayed with and ingest zombie fluids. Now, ingesting zombie fluids is very very bad (think of crossing the streams in Ghostbusters) because that will kill ya and make you a zombie. Remember that you will have to sharpen your sword often as cutting through the neck bone will dull that faster than all work and no play! Swordplay will get you killed, fast, even before you have a chance to mack on one of the babes that you will meet and have apocalypse sex.

I think the invasion has already taken place. Aren't there zombies in the Governor's mansion and in the Kansas House of Representatives?
