British Zombies Attack Unprepared City Council

If there’s one thing zombies love more than delicious human brains, it’s the hubris of British government employees.

On June 10 we ran a piece on the Leicester City Council, detailing the local government’s bemused reaction to a letter asking if they had a contingency plan in case hell should ever become full, prompting the dead to again walk the earth.

In its official statement the council was polite, exhibiting a stoic reserve worthy of Alfred Tennyson, though spokeswoman Lynn Wyeth did admit to giggling at the query.

That was a mistake.

One week later, the Leicester City Council was overrun by a horde of 150 shambling corpses, clawing hungrily at the windows in a lethargic bid to sup upon a buffet of tasty frontal lobes and piquant hippocampi.

Fortunately for Council employees, no one was messily devoured, likely because the stunt was the brainchild of one James Dixon, a citizen who organized the “mass shamble” via Facebook.

“We went for a shamble. We shambled from the clock to the city council offices — about half a mile through the city centre,” Dixon told the BBC.

“There were just a couple of security guards at the building. We didn’t try to get inside — just pressed ourselves up against the glass like zombies do.”

“A few of us are in the pub now — it’s been a really good day,” Dixon added.

The event attracted stares from onlookers, including one Chris Porter. “People were going about their normal routine when all of a sudden a steady horde of zombies came lumbering into view,” Porter said.

“It was astonishing how everyone just seemed to stop and stare. Of course, if it had been a real zombie attack I think folk would be running for their lives,” he added.

Meanwhile, here in The States, zombie attacks are at an all-time low thanks to the vigilance of the Center for Disease Control (and, presumably, Frank West).
