Friends on a email list passed around this clever little blood-curdling link yesterday. It’s a story from the BBC about an outbreak of a disease that actually reanimates the dead for a few hours! Freakin’ ZOMBIES, man!
The news created a stir among my genre-loving friends…until I had to be a know-it-all spoil sport and ruin everyone’s fun by pointing out the tell tale signs that the story is a hoax and is not hosted on the BBC site at all.
I immediately regretted my actions as my friends, one Chad Derdowski among them, crashed down from the natural high one experiences when one learns that zombies are real.
