Hackers Provide Public Service, Alert Motorists To Looming Zombie Apocalypse

This is something bloggers like The Sniper and myself have been trying to do ever since Obama got elected! God bless these technically-savvy social deviants for providing such an important PSA. From Fox News:

Transportation officials in Texas are scrambling to prevent hackers from changing messages on digital road signs after one sign in Austin was altered to read, "Zombies Ahead."

Chris Lippincott, director of media relations for the Texas Department of Transportation, confirmed that a portable traffic sign at Lamar Boulevard and West 15th Street, near the University of Texas at Austin, was hacked into during the early hours of Jan. 19.
ABWF tips us off with video footage from Austin, but there were no zombies filmed feasting on brains. They must be still slogging their way back from the coronation in D.C. last week.

I saw this on The Sniper and immediately thought of you. Figured someone else had already tipped you off, though, so I'm surprised it took you so long to post something. Must be your incredibly busy schedule cutting into blogging time. :P

When I saw this on Fox News, I also thought of you. It is a wonder that you did not get bombarded with the link.

"Pretentious"?!?!?! How dare you call us pretentious?!?!? Wait, that kind of question is pretentious in and of itself, isn't it?

But how dare you anyway?!?!

Zombies have pervaded the land, LT Nixon. They Live! Have you not seen Invasion of the Body Snatchers?!!!

This is not a partisan event, surely you can concede that.
