Warning Zombies Ahead

For anyone who doesn’t recall the driver’s ed section on avoiding undead life forms, you might want to steer clear of South Carolina for a few days.

“Zombies Ahead,” “Watch for Hunters” and “Be Alert for Tanks” are the three warnings that drivers on Lancaster County’s S.C. 160 recently encountered from two seemingly tampered with electronic road signs, the Rock Hill Herald reports.

The pair of highway signs, contracted through construction company CR Jackson, were intended to alert drivers of upcoming night road paving scheduled to begin March 27.

South Carolina drivers didn’t expect to enter the Twilight Zone while traveling on S.C. 160.

Since the errant messages were discovered shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday, they have become a sort of mystery to Department of Transportation officials.

“It wasn’t obvious that someone broke into it,” said Jason Johnston, a DOT district construction engineer. “It’s not our board, so we can’t program. We can’t look at the records to see what happened. And we don’t know if it was left unlocked.”

Ken Wilson, resident construction engineer for the state’s Lancaster County DOT, told The Herald that someone would need to be physically present at the sign in order to tamper with it.

“It’s my understanding that they would need a key to get into the box and a certain code to change the wording,” Wilson said.

Wilson added that as far as mischief goes, a night of the living dead isn’t all that bad.

“The message could have been a lot worse than it was,” he said. “In my opinion, it was a prank. They could have put something more sinister, something causing more panic.”

The construction company did not contact authorities and plans to address the matter internally.

A number of YouTube videos, including the one below, appear to show signs of a zombie presence.

Alert: Unknown Missile Launch

(Nov. 9) — An unexplained missile shot across the sky off the coast of Los Angeles and was caught on video by a CBS News traffic helicopter during Monday night’s rush hour. Today, the missile is still a mystery. A Navy spokesman told CBS affiliate KFMB that it was not theirs, and so far the Pentagon has not been able to explain it either. The missile was reportedly about 35 miles west of L.A. and just north of Catalina Island.

NBC’s Pentagon correspondent, Jim Miklaszewski, reports that a missile launch would not have been planned so close to a major city, and at the very least, residents would have been warned a test was imminent. A senior Pentagon official told him, “This is bizarre.”

Try, this is bullshit. They don’t know where it came from, hahaha.

NEW YORK (AP) – As if the morning commute wasn’t odd enough, intrepid New Yorkers trying to make their way to work on Tuesday had to battle past hordes of the walking dead.

Two dozen zombies, their clothes spattered with fake blood, were staggering up and down the block outside Madison Square Garden. Downtown, others shuffled across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Some pedestrians looked startled or amused by the ghost-white actors with bruised-looking eyes. Some people ignored them entirely. Others whipped out their cell phone cameras
