Stephen Colbert Warns That The CDC Has Been Taken Over By Zombies!

Filed under: Silly!Stephen Colbert

America's obsession with zombies has become so powerful that it's not just Hollywood dramatizing an apocalypse at the hands of the undead — news outlets and the CDC are too!

Thanks in part to the zombie lure's growing popularity in our culture, the CDC released a "tongue in cheek campaign" last year for surviving a possible zombie uprising. In response to the current media coverage of the recent canibalistic attack in Miami, the CDC has clarified:

"CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)."

Stephen Colbert is questioning the government agencies flip-flopping stance on the existence of the walking dead and has a developed new theory: The CDC has been taken over by zombies!

LOL! As always, Colbert delivers HIGHlariously entertaining commentary on pop culture. Check out his statement on the impending zombie apocalypse (above)!
