#225: Zombie Apocalypse (not!)

#225: Zombie Apocalypse (not!)

Today’s comic is inspired by this story about all the recent zombie apocalypse hysteria, inspired by the horrifying face-eating incident in Miami. The story reminds us that any perceived uptick in zombie-ish cannibalism in the news lately is likely nothing more than confirmation bias. Which is a bit disappointing, really… I’ve been waiting my whole life for the zombie apocalypse.

    Nester, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Nester, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

    It was only when I lay there on rotting prison straw that I sensed within myself the first stirrings of good. Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either, but right through every human heart, and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. Even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained; and even in the best of all hearts, there remains a small corner of evil.

    I hope this message of hope reaches you; and if it goes amiss I hope it’s because of the zombie apocalypse and not because a website was down or some wussy reason like that.

    I just spent a few seconds looking for a “like” or “+1” button for your comment WM, until I remembered that I was not on a social networking site. Anyway, nicely done!

    Good one. Frankly I have grown a little tired of all the ‘zombie-apocalypse’ sillyness in the news.

    Stupid fake zombie apocalypse >:(

    I’m certain you have heard of the news now about the New mexico ‘zombie’. Amazingly, it turned out to be the federal government… you can image this T-Virus out in the wild. The gov is making use of bath salts in order to suppress the public’s doubts; when it reality, it was from the virus being injected in to an unsuspected guy. This is the beginning, be prepared!

    Zombie in New Mexico? I haven’t heard about that one. Pesky government, always messing with dangerous zombie viruses.

  7. EssBee says:

    Sure, ‘confirmation bias’, just what the zombies want us to believe. It’s all fun-critical thinking-games until someone loses a brain. Or heart. Or foot and hand.

  8. chaospet says:

    Oh well. What has my brain (or heart, or foot or hand) done for me lately anyway?

  9. wm tanksley says:

    EssBee, you’re exactly right. Here’s some more proof.

    See? People are making zombie bullets; they KNOW. They’re also denying they’re for zombies, which is proof that this is what They Want You To Believe.

    Is there still any up or down? Are we not straying, as through an infinite nothing? Do we not feel the breath of empty space? Has it not become colder? Is not night continually closing in on us? Do we not need to light lanterns in the morning? Do we hear nothing as yet of the noise of the gravediggers?
