Zombies Ahead!

rt-2008-redu3It seems pranksters are taking over digital road signs and using them to post their own messages—ones that have nothing to do with road work ahead or the speed limit.  So far most of the messages have been about zombies.  The pranksters leave messages like ‘zombies ahead’ or ‘entering zombie zone’.  All this is illegal, of course, but definitely catches a motorist’s attention.  The first signs appeared in Bucks County but according to a report on the radio, the phenomenon has spread as far as Australia.

The day before this article appeared in the local paper, I finished reading Jonathan Maberry’s, Patient Zero, a creepy and riveting, story about a terrorist cell that uses a prion-based pathogen to create, you guessed it, zombies, to further their cause.  Hmmm.  Coincidence?  A case of life imitating art?  Or a sneaky and revolutionary marketing ploy?  You’ll have to decide for yourself.  In the meantime, read the book.
