Zombies threaten the G20 summit in Brisbane. No this isn’t a joke but an actual news story from the Courier Mail (19th and 20th September edition papers). Seems that earlier in the year organizers of the Annual Zombie Walk received an email from police advising they would have to find another venue after the event beginning was too close to the security circle planned for the Summit meeting the worlds leaders would attend.
All is not lost though as Brisbane’s Lord Mayor said the wandering Zombies did not have to move their event saying the expected 15000 participants (caching hello tourist dollars) could still hold their walk in the place they had originally designated seeing the G20 summit is to be held 6 months after the shambling hordes do their thing for charity.
Like a necromantic Moses, Lord Mayor Quirk (and yes, this is his name … quirky huh?) has thrown up his hands and demanded the Law of Brisbane to “Let his undead people go” … Saying that US President Barack Obahma had nothing to fear from the zombies. And I for one agree.
For should there be a sudden outbreak of flesh eating ghouls then we will call on those brave souls whose very existence has been planned for. Yes, I am talking of the millions of teenagers who spend most of their time sitting on their favourite gaming console playing the many Zombie killing games that have been made over the past years. So fear not as the walking dead apocalypse is met head on by shouts of “N00b”, varied “Your mother” jokes and cries of “What’s the cheat code for unlimited ammo again?”
Moral of today’s story?
Brain eating monsters or Mindless Zombies tapping away at their game consoles … humanity is screwed.
