Despite All The Recent Zombie-like Behavior, The CDC Denies A Zombie Apocalypse
There's been far too many zombie-like incidents in the very recent past for people's interests not to be piqued. From the naked guy that ate the homeless man's face to the college student who ate his roommate, it's definitely a question that we've posed! But apparently the CDC is saying no...or they're lying! Check out what they had to say and more of the zombie werdness that's going on after the jump!
According to the Huffington Post:
"CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)," wrote agency spokesman David Daigle in an email to The Huffington Post.
Nevertheless, recent incidents in which humans reportedly ate human flesh have the Internet in a firestorm, with "zombie apocalypse" being Google's third most popular search term by Friday morning.
Cops in Canada are also searching for a low-budget porn actor who allegedly killed a young man with an ice pick, dismembered the body and then raped and ate flesh from the corpse. Luka Rocco Magnotta is being hunted after he allegedly mailed some of the body parts to Ottawa. He's also accused of killing cats on video and posting the footage online.
Gawker fingered a "mysterious rash" breakout at a high school in Hollywood and other parts of Florida -- which hazmat and disease control teams still can't explain -- as further proof that zombies are taking over.
Zombie-like characteristics have been confirmed in the animal kingdom, just not in humans. A newfound fungus in a Brazilian rain forest -- called Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani -- is known to infect an ant, take over its brain so as to move the body to a good location for growth, and then kill the insect."
Damn it! Tell us the truth!!! Be ready, y'all! That's all I can tell ya!
