Has the Zombie Apocalypse Already Begun?

As the internet has no doubt told you by now, a Miami homeless man attacked another homeless man and bit his face clean off. Police arrived and had to put multiple bullets into the biter before he died. If you haven't seen the pictures of the victim's face, or lack thereof, I'm going to link you to a website which will in turn link you to the pictures. They're so disgusting I want to keep them at least two websites away from me. For those who are sane enough to stay away, imagine a redder, more horizontal Two-Face.

So, okay. One guy leaned a little hard on the drugs and bit another guys face off. It's disgusting, but it's just one case, right? If only.

This is only the latest potentially zombie-related news story being reported this month from all around the nation. For instance, on May 19th, an unknown chemical was released in the Fort Lauderdale airport, sending five people to the hospital. Police have yet to identify the substance.

Okay, that's a little unsettling. But ultimately no big deal.
I might carry around a hatchet though. Just in case.

Then we start hearing of mysterious rashes appearing on students and teachers. Hazardous Materials squads were called in, despite the article specifically mentioning that the students were not working with chemicals.

And finally, we have a doctor who was arrested and went berserk, eventually spitting his own blood at police.

Maybe this is a case of confirmation bias— one story comes out about face-biting that freaks us out so much we start thinking the zombie outbreak is inevitable and find stories to confirm out hypothesis. I hope that's the case, but I for one am so legitimately scared by all this that I have no choice but to post pictures of cute animals to alleviate the fear.
