Today's subject is about something of major importance for our survival here on Earth. I don't know how many of you are worried about the threat of zombie attack, but I am posting a link to the Youtube video of former President, George W. Bush discussing this possibility with a reporter. For those of you who think that zombies are only fictional creatures that you see in television and movies, it is scientific fact that zombies exist. National Geographic magazine has covered zombie ants. These ants are in Brazil, and they have their mind taken over by a parasitic fungus that affects their behavior. The fungus is a newfound species, Ophiocordyceps Camponoti-balzani. You know it is real because I'm not creative enough to come up with such a long, silly name for a fungus. Once the fungus affects the ants, it releases chemicals that make the ant find a location that is best for the fungus. Then the ant grabs hold of the leaf (the fungus likes leaves), and holds the leaf in a death grip until the ant dies. This fungus was discovered by entomologist (a bug expert for those who don't like big, fancy titles), David Hughes.
This brings me to an important point. If this fungus is affecting the behavior of ants, it is only logical that it could be affecting aunts too. I have one aunt in particular that I suspect has fallen victim to this fungus and became a zombie because she likes to spend most of her time sleeping. That sounds like zombie behavior to me.
Since it can affect aunts, and they are human, this explains why the aforementioned video with George W. Bush is so important. While the humans are worrying about things that will never happen, zombies could be plotting their takeover of the world. If Dick Cheney isn't a zombie, I don't know who is.
