Concerned citizen Robert Ainsley sent a Freedom of Information Act request to authorities in Leicester, England, to determine if the city has a plan in place for a potential (inevitable?) zombie invasion. Here’s the full text of his request, via the beeb:
Dear Leicester City Council,
Can you please let us know what provisions you have in place in the event of a zombie invasion? Having watched several films it is clear that preparation for such an event is poor and one that councils throughout the kingdom must prepare for.
Please provide any information you may have.
I’m going to try to slip the phrase “having watched several films it is clear that . . .” into all my written communications henceforth. His logic is undeniable.
The Leicester city council has 20 working days to respond, but one member, Lynn Wyeth, spoke on a local radio station. She said that, to the best of her recollection, there isn’t a specific plan in place for zombie attacks, but some protocols of their other disaster plans could be applied to situations as they arise. No specific plan, eh? Hear that, zombies? There’s a certain village in jolly ol’ England what’s ripe for a spot of bother.
After the jump are a few of my favorite zombie-related photos and a brutal compilation video of zombie kills in The Walking Dead. See that, zombies? The US is a terrible place to start your invasion. Just something to keep in mind while you search for brains.
