The Apocalypse Is Always Greener on the Other Side

This is one of those “memes” (more precisely, “image macros”) that I found somewhere on the Internet late at night. I know not where, nor to whom this image belongs. I thought it was funny, so I posted it to my Facebook page with the caption, “All right, Keanu, that’s enough Colorado collard greens for you.”

Upon further reflection of this macro, however, the general idea reveals a dark truth. Given all that’s going on, this is a human apocalypse. We made nearly everything else go extinct, why not zombies? Prehistoric man, with zero technology, made short work of saber-toothed tigers and the wooly mammoth.

Really, one does wonder if—despite having so much to eat—zombies would stand a chance.
