Harbinger of the 2012 Zombie Uprising

I first saw this on the TODAY show – so it must be true… Please DO NOT believe the following article:!

Hackers create 'Zombies Ahead' highway signs

AUSTIN — Apparent slacker hackers with time to kill brought a raised eyebrow or two to the faces of motorists at a busy Austin intersection.
Electronic signs intended to warn motorists of construction near the intersection of Lamar and Martin Luther King boulevards were changed Wednesday to warn of “Zombies Ahead! Run for your lives!”
The two signs are about a half mile west of the University of Texas campus.
Austin Public Works spokeswoman Sara Hartley says the message was only displayed for a few hours. She said the hackers cut a padlock to get into the signs’ computers.
Hartley also tells KXAN-TV in Austin that the stunt is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine if the scamps are ever found.

The article is from the Associated Press / Houston Chronicle web site and I, for one, am frightened at just how far the powers that be have gone to interfere with the freedom of the press. Clearly this is a cover story. Make no mistake – there was a Zombie uprising in Austin Texas and the government wants you to remain unaware of the danger. You won’t hear the truth from the press; oh no… you’ll only hear it leaked from blogs such as this one and by those American Heroes who reprogrammed the sign!

Oh you can believe what you want to believe but remember – you heard the first warning right HERE! No matter what the Austin City fathers or the bought off press want you to think a Zombie breakout was quelled. This is only a harbinger of things to come 2012 is not that far away!

…Hackers, Slackers, Scamps?! Please. Don’t insult the American people’s intelligence. We see through your clever ruse. The days of being pandered to are over! Remember Austin City Council; you can only hide the TRUTH for so long.

I only hope that by that time it won’t be too late.
