Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

May 21, 2009 -

If you've been up all night playing Resident Evil 5 and you're a little freaked out by the experience and you happen to live in Boston, fear not; the local constabulary has your back. The Boston Police Department has vowed to alert the public to any and all zombie attacks.

That reassuring news comes by way TruTV's Dumb as a Blog, which chronicles an exchange of tweets between @Boston_Police and another Twitter user. Here's how it went down:

Boston_Police:  INJURED OFFICER: Officer from district 4 transported to Beth Israel Hospital, human bite to arm, suspect in custody.

willcady:  @Boston_Police if that was a zombie bite, would you tell us?

Boston_Police:   @willcady Yes, absolutely

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Since when do the Boston Police have a sense of humor?

Maybe they got enough bad PR from thier overreactions and mellowed out a bit?

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Meh, now Boston will probably see something completely harmless (like a plastic bag floating in the breeze) and proceed to flip out and declare the beginning of the Zombie Apocalypse. 

God help us if Zombies attack us wielding deadly Lite Brites.

You can't trust ANYONE these days!  The police officer LIES.  D:>

"HEY! LISTEN!"

"HEY! LISTEN!"

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

*gasp* but what if the guys responsible for telling the public ARE the zombies?!?!

 

....it may already be too late!

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

just buy the zombie survival guide by Max Brooks, it will tell you everything you need to know.

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

ROFL

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Given their track record on identifying bombs, I wouldn't trust the Boston PD to know a zombie bite from a scraped knee.

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Yes, I wish we had more police officers with Braaaaaaaaaaaaains.

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

The Book "Zombie CSU" deals with stuff like this, the guy interviewed all sorts of people about what would happen if a real life Z-Day were to go down

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Hahaha!

Nice to see a more light hearted story :)

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

 That's awesome; at least we know Boston has our backs when the zombies come for us but do they have our backs when the aliens come?

Andrew EisenAs it happens, Chinatown Wars is the only GTA game I've played.04/19/2014 - 10:43am
Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am
IanCSo im guessing a bunch of edutainment games, which a lot of people elsewhere are going gaga over, dot count as classics? Okay. If you don't mind me, i have a sudden urge to play Putt Putt....04/19/2014 - 6:15am

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm
Matthew Wilsonthis is worth a whatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyXcr6sDRtw&list=PL35FE5C4B157509C904/18/2014 - 3:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
