    Caution! Zombies Ahead!

    Pranks involving electronic road signs stir worry - Yahoo! News

    Now this is funny.

    The latest breach came Tuesday during the morning rush hour near Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign along southbound Interstate 255 to read, "DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES."
    A day earlier in Indiana's Hamilton County, the electronic message on a board in Carmel's construction zone warned drivers of "RAPTORS AHEAD — CAUTION."
    And signs in Austin, Texas, recently flashed: "NAZI ZOMBIES! RUN!!!" and "ZOMBIES IN AREA! RUN."
    Glad to see that Illinois officials figured it out:
    "We understood it was a hoax, but at the same time those boards are there for a reason," said Joe Gasaway, an Illinois Department of Transportation supervisory field engineer. "We don't want (drivers) being distracted by a funny sign."

    Apparently it's becoming an epidemic.

    Sounds like the zombies were moving north, now west. If we don't stop the problem now, we are all done for!

    Re: Caution! Zombies Ahead!

    Just let me give my pals a call...



    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Hopefully the raptors will take care of the zombies for us, but what if we end up having to fend off zombie raptors? That would be scary.

    Apparently, Joe Gasaway is a part of the vast conspiracy denying the existence of zombies. Yeah it'd pretty freaking funny when you got one gnawing on your frontal lobe! From Illinois, no less - where they just got rid of you-know-who - need I say more?!?!
