"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in need of more brains"

Good news for those of us looking for training films about the imminent zombie apocalypse (I can particularily recommend: Strippers Versus Zombies)

Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austens collaboration in 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is due out on film next year.

Using "zombie apocalypse" as a generic, tongue-in-cheek stand-in for the "worst case scenario" is harmless. Using it to refer to specific groups of people is boorish -- if you disagree with people, do so on the basis of specific concerns (otherwise the zombie may be you -- check in the mirror).

That said, and purely for your amusement, I can't help but relate this gem, which I believe I purloined (appropriately) from a zombiehunters post somewhere:

Leader: What do we want?
Mob: Brains!
Leader: When do we want it?
Mob: Brains!

"...
The Boy Scouts-vs.-zombies lineup isn't so far-fetched in the "thought experiment" kind of way. The advent of an undead apocalypse, as reliable groups like the U.S. military and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have argued, would require the same basic emergency skills as any disaster.
...
Zombie societies and fictional Scouts aside, some very sober experts have taken the idea of zombie survival at least semiseriously.
...
Last year, a 2011 U.S. military document outlining a zombie contingency plan came to light. The so-called CONPLAN 8888 document describes the military's response to reanimated threats, from "pathogenic" to "evil magic" zombies.
...
Not to be out-planned, in May 2011 the CDC published its own zombie-preparedness guide. The agency doesn't foresee a plague of Walkers, either, but instead aimed to teach general emergency preparedness to the public."

Those were done as "tongue in cheek" documents which use the popularity of the zombie genre to gain interest in basic emergency preparedness. It is just a ploy to get people to pay attention to things. It is a shame that it is necessary though.
