In New Jersey, a cornered man didn’t have the guts to face the cops because he’d ripped them out and thrown them.
In Maryland, a college student had a heart…and some brain.
And in Canada, a porn actor succumbed to his desire for a nosh after sex…with a side of corpse.
Zombie Apocalypse?!!! Should we be shocked? Horrified? Sickened?
But cannibalism is not exactly new. It has a long, delectable history driven by ritual, starvation, delusion, and twisted taboo-busting curiosity.
Oh, and let’s not forget healthy recycling. Or at least that’s one of the reasons given for sipping raw Placenta Smoothies on the sites dedicated to eating afterbirth. Yum!
Should we be scared of the Zombie Apocalypse?
Most definitely. But not because there’s an imminent threat of crazed, flesh-eating killers invading our cities. The truth is very few zombies eat flesh. They just don’t have the energy. They’re too lazy. Eating humans requires hunting them down and really, most zombies can’t be bothered if it doesn’t come artificially flavored, colored, preserved, and packaged. Humans are lazy predators. They prefer to hunt for bargains, not breakfast.
What is a zombie after all? A mindless human driven by desire to consume. Well, my friends, look around. WE ARE SURROUNDED BY ZOMBIES. [cue: ominous music]
The Zombie Apocalypse didn’t happen suddenly due to some mutating virus. We live in a world that turns people into mindless consumers of products, brands, celebrities, political BS, and prosperity gospels. We are taught not to question or think—to cede our minds to the talking heads on the screens who tell us what to believe, want, and do. It helps that we are pumped full of simulated food-like substances and mind-altering drugs that are supposed to make us happy. We are programmed from childhood to play a Money Game called “American Dream” where anyone can be rich and famous and fabulous. You just have to give up your conscience and be willing to kill the competition and eat them alive. The goal of this sick game is to gain status and power so people will want to eat their hearts out.
What?! That’s just wrong. And very, very real. So yes, there is a Zombie Apocalypse but the media has us focusing on a few psychotic individuals so we don’t see the real danger.
Zombies R Us.
Which is why we want to wake up all the zombie players before it’s too late and their funny bones are gnawed away.
What do you think of the real Zombie Apocalypse? How can we stop it?
