Gerlach, NV (CN) – The Event North of Reno has been designated a Zombie Safe Zone in a map commissioned by the US Congress. An interactive map released Monday displaying possible danger zones and resources for the coming Zombie Apocalypse lists the site of the Burning Man arts festival as a safe zone.
“We believe the desert could accommodate 100,000,” said Burning Man spokesperson Maid Marian. “Doesn’t matter whether its for Flaming Lotus Girls art and frozen pickle dildos or fleeing for your life from the walking dead. Folks will arrive at the gate looking about the same; full of energy and eager to get in.”
An anonymous Prepper and Survivalist expert associated with SurvivalBlog.com thought the designation as a Zombie Safe Zone was dubious. “Burners do a lot of TEOTWAWKI prep work great; food and dubstep for instance. But they will have to reconsider not letting firearms in.”
Burning Man Gate, Perimeter, and Exodus Coordinator ‘Randi Fence’ was asked if Burning Man could repel a zombie horde.
“They don’t have a ticket they don’t get in. Zombie or no zombie, its that simple.”
The Map of the Dead was commissioned by the America is Ready for the Zombie Apocalypse Act (ARZAA) passed by Congress in 2009. Start up company Doejo known more for their martial arts acumen than their cartography skills were awarded the no bid contract to create the map. “I’m not sure if Burning Man is safe,” said Doejo founder Dusty Merc. “But Burning Man handed us a couple hundred tickets before the lottery so we figured the least we could do is list them as ‘safe’.”
Zombies have been seen at Burning Man before but in small numbers near Opulent Temple around dawn. They were easily dispatched.
