For nonfiction class today we were supposed to bring in a tabloid newspaper. I chose the Weekly World News because it's the most outlandish. Part of the assignment involved choosing a favorite article and telling the class about it. I chose the very last article, which explained that Flesh-Eating Zombies Are Multiplying Like Rabbits! This article explained that a new zombie rises from its grave every four minutes, which by my calculations means that there are 360 new zombies every day. This information was supposedly pulled from "year 2000 census information from over 300 nations." So, not only are those zombies multiplying, but they're participating in the census.
