    If you stand there and let some bipolar, schizophrenic person hit you in the face TWICE.... you might be a zombie! Because an alive, human would have ducked that second time.... idiot!

    Zombies are becoming a problem. President Obama just declared zombie-izm a national emergency. If you see zombies in your neighborhood you should contact the CDC or local law enforcement immediately. Zombies, while slow moving can be extremely aggressive and often they travel in packs. Please do not try to take on a zombie by yourself like this fool did.

    The story said the victim was trying to order food when approached by the one doing the hitting & running. Alcohol seems irrelevant...
