OK, for the record, I never swore off blogging about zombies. I just said I planned on cutting back a bit. And I have, mostly.
But a friend sent me this item about how Delaware County Ohio health officials used volunteer “zombies” to help with a hazardous materials decontamination drill. When the call for zombies went out, people came from as far as 100 miles away to join in. They were given instructions for makeup and those who needed it got help in that department. There was even a “best zombie walk” contest.
Fortunately for the volunteers, they were decontaminated with a fire hose and candy rather than having their brains whacked. But some zombiephobes, including no doubt my over-educated daughter, would want to remind the public that real zombies won’t go down that easy.
