Zombies to Attack Lansing

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME DEPARTMENT!

With all the real problems happening in this state, British and American tabloids are making a laughing stock of our state capital, as if they weren't doing such a fine job of it without any outside help.

Apparently the British Tabloid, The Sun, had a quote by police lieutenant Bruce Ferguson, who really does exist, saying that he and his men were arming themselves with chainsaws in anticipation of an invasion of zombies. Disk Jockeys and other tabloids have chimed in as well.

I attempted to link to the original article but The Sun's internal search engine is a nightmare. I did find this story which satirizes the whole idea.

Did he really say that?

Now what did Lt. Ferguson really say?

And he did, in fact, say, "People can feel confident, if zombies start invading, we'll know how to close the streets. We can get chain saws, too."

It was tongue in cheek and reference to the confidence he has in his men and women. A far-out way of saying that he is prepared for the unexpected and believes he can handle it.

But the true meaning of what he said isn't any fun.

There's another article on this at EnergyTomorrow.com, Shoprat. According to this article, he was referring to Lansing, Michigan.

The entire thing is truly wacko! LOL! The living are far more scarier than the dead. :)

Lt. Ferguson is right. The Zombies are not far away. Just check out Max Brooks' (son of Mel Brooks) book World War Z. The dead shall walk again, globally!

If it appeared in The Sun and it wasn't on the headsheet or page 2, chances are half their readers didn't see it, as they probably don't get past the "infamous" Page 3.

If the other half read the zombie story and believed it, well... what Gayle said. :-)
