I Must’ve Missed that Memo

May 15, 2011

If you weren’t aware that May is Zombie Awareness Month, you may be part of the problem and not the solution.

This marks the fourth year Zombie Awareness Month has been held, and according to Matt Mogk, the founder and head of the Zombie Research Society, the official sponsor of the campaign, it’s needed now more than ever.

“Zombie Awareness Month is designed to make people more aware of the coming zombie plague,” Mogk told AOL Weird News. “It’s getting bigger each year and this year, the focus is on helping children become aware.”

The reason May was chosen instead of, say, Halloween, is that major zombie films like “Night of the Living Dead” and “Dawn of the Dead” are set in spring.

One way that people can show their support is by wearing a gray ribbon, but Mogk is hoping to target the nation’s youth via a new children’s book, “That’s Not Your Mommy Anymore” (Ulysses Press), that he describes as “Dr. Seuss Meets ‘Night of the Living Dead.'”

The book explains the implications of the impending Zombie Apocalypse with verses like:

When she’s clawing at the kitchen door,
that’s not your Mommy anymore.
When her face looks like an apple core,
that’s not your Mommy anymore.

    I was hoping the zombie craze was just a trend. Apparently not.
