They ask folks to prepare for a zombie apocalypse because if you prepare for this, any other natural disaster is kind of covered.
Most folks think the Gumment does not look out for us, but there are folks in the Gumment who actually believe in their job and want to help.
So they look for ways to actually help.
Zombie apocalypse is a great way to prep as you can be prepared and have fun at it too.
It makes for great conversation at the stores, such as when you buy a few hundred pounds of non perishable type foods.
The checker might say, "Feeding an army"?
And you reply, "Nope, zombie apocalypse"!
Some will look at you strange and feel uneasy others it will spark a conversation.
And, if you are one of the type who believes the Gumment is a useless parasite and wish only for anarchy, it gives you plausible deniability.
Judge asks, "Why the rocket launcher"?
You respond, "If the CDC thinks zombie apocalypse is possible and maybe probable as they told us to prepare for it, explosions are best for large
crowds of zombies".
Who knows, maybe you'd get off or even just get some rubber room time.
It certainly beats trading cigarettes for top ramen!
Also, it sells zombie movies.
World war X anyone?
