This is the best headline ever

FBI tries to fight zombie hordes

Coming on the heels of yesterday’s Blog Like It’s the End of the World, I didn’t expect that this article would be about computers.

A little desconstruction:

  1. It’s a fun headline — it caught my eye in a huge list of RSS feeds.
  2. But it has nothing really to do with the story. Yes, I know the terminology is correct, but there’s definitely a vibe that someone late last night decided to have a little fun.
  3. In the end, I’d say this was a brilliant headline for a bit of advertising copy. It’s a bit crap, though, for straight-faced journalism.
