Hide your children, hide your wives! The zombie apocalypse is nigh! Or “apocolypse.” Can’t expect proper spelling when typing in fear for one’s very life!

More from Huffington Post (warning: pictures):

Police sources have identified the homeless victim in a horrific, bloody assault in which a naked North Miami Beach man chewed off a large portion of another’s man’s face, as first reported by the Miami Herald and CBS Miami.

Ronald Poppo, 65, is in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, just blocks from where he was attacked by 31-year-old Rudy Eugene in broad daylight Saturday on the Downtown off-ramp of Miami’s busy MacArthur Causeway.

Horrifying. Twitter users try to deal with the horror in their own ways.



From CBS News:

HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A man who stabbed himself and threw pieces of his skin and intestines at police officers trying to subdue him was hospitalized in critical condition on Monday, authorities said.

See what you’ve wrought, Walking Dead?

Conspiracy theories abound.

A resurgence of interest in an old CDC warning about a zombie apocalypse helps feed the theories. Coincidence? You decide.

FoxNews report in May of last year:

The idea behind the campaign stemmed from concerns of radiation fears following the earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan in March. CDC spokesman Dave Daigle told FoxNews.com that someone had asked CDC officials if zombies would be a concern due to radiation fears in Japan and traffic spiked following that mention.

“It’s kind of a tongue-in-cheek campaign,” Daigle said Wednesday. “We were talking about hurricane preparedness and someone bemoaned that we kept putting out the same messages.”

While metrics for the post are not yet available, Daigle said it has become the most popular CDC blog entry in just two days.

“People are so tuned into zombies,” he said. “People are really dialed in on zombies. The idea is we’re reaching an audience or a segment we’d never reach with typical messages.”

Way to feed the conspiracies, CDC!

Bed, Bath & Beyond to blame?

We smell a lawsuit! Or at least a new warning label.

But Twitter users are keeping vigilant watch for more signs of the Zombie Apocalypse.

Some are poo-pooing the zombie events.

That’s the guy who goes out into the woods alone in a horror movie. We all know what always happens to that dude, don’t we?
