End of the world got you down? No worries, the gubmint .
“There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example,” said an official blog post by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan on the Centers for Disease Control website. “You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency,” says the blog.
The tongue-in-cheek post makes no reference to fervent allegations by some preachers that the world will end on Saturday May 21.
Please. If there’s one thing my readers know, it’s how to survive a zombie apocalypse. But in case you haven’t boned up in a while, feel free to check your preparedness here. It’ll distract you from the fact that the CDC wasted our time and money writing that blog post.
