Hackers changed a digital road sign in Texas to warn of zombies ahead. It's another sign of the impending zombie apocalypse!:eek:

Treat your Roomba kindly, and when they take over our world, you shall be spared as a pet. :)

I don't think that would've fit on the sign.

"Robots Ahead" would. "Killer Robots Ahead" probably wouldn't though.

As long as my trusty cricket bat is close at hand, the zombies hordes hold no fear for me.

I am prepared to sacrifice my copy of Prince's Batman so I will also be fine...

There isn't a Winchester anywhere nearby. Am I doomed?

I make pretty good imitation of zombie noise. Maybe I can fake my way through?

That sign is not much help; are they slow zombies like Dawn Of The Dead or fast zombies, like the remake?

"Robots Ahead" would. "Killer Robots Ahead" probably wouldn't though.

Looks like it would fit. See below.

So these zombies refuse to eat anyone who is gay, black or Jewish? There may be a silver lining to this zombie apocalypse after after all.

So long as we have pipebombs and Zoey I don't mind a zombie rampage.

Along with a wall of fire from a mulatto.
Although, yesterday we were all in the safe house and for some reason Zoey was like half a mile behind us and got nailed by a hunter and a hoard.

No, that's the year of the nuclear apocalypse, when President Palin mistakes The Button for the room-service button.
