University of Florida Removes Zombie Attack Plan

Following up on a report I posted, oh... 5 minutes ago, The Associated Press just released the news that the University of Florida removed their Zombie Contigency Plan. From the AP website:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The University of Florida's response plans for a zombie apocalypse are no longer available for public consumption.

UF spokesman Steve Orlando said Friday the university removed a link to a disaster recovery exercise, which detailed how the school could respond to an outbreak of the undead. The link was taken down late Thursday afternoon.

Orlando says officials felt the joke "didn't really belong" on the site, which also included plans for dealing with hurricanes and pandemics.

The exercise lays out the university's response to attacks by "flesh-eating, apparently life impaired individuals." It notes that a zombie outbreak might include "documentation of lots of strange moaning."

Orlando says the employee who wrote the gag wasn't punished.

    Good show. Too often you hear of innocent jokes and fun-making getting taken too seriously and the "perp" getting the axe or some such thing.

    Good on UF for taking the joke and moving on...
