I have a theory… now this theory is not a scientific theory. For one thing, I haven’t tested it out or studied it to death. Also it might not be logical or even based in reality. And lastly, I must confess, I am not a scientist.
But my theory is this “If the age old saying is true and you are what you eat. Then it is “logical” (note the bunny ears) to assume that eating zombie chickens could trigger a zombie apocalypse.”
Now you might be asking yourself, what is a zombie chicken? Well the answer is simple. A zombie chicken is created in a dark and dirty place. A place where hormones and chemicals nourish the flesh and muscles to grow. A place where chickens no longer walk and the unnatural growth of their body snaps their little chicken legs. A place where the air is so thick with chicken poop, a human needs a protective mask just to enter. These are zombie chickens.
Now I am not sure if you are a zombie fan. But a zombie apocalypse always starts with some sort of virus that infects humans. These humans eventually die and become the walking dead.
But what if the movies got it wrong…what if the start of the apocalypse is brought on by something we eat. What if meat pumped with hormones, bred for the sole purpose of mass production is actually contaminated on a molecular level. Because of this negative unnatural environment, these birds mutate in to zombie chickens. And once a human eats the infected meat, they eventually become zombies. And we do become what we eat.
Obliviously this is just a crazy idea and the likelihood of this theory being true is ridiculous. But I betcha 100 years ago people would have thought that the industrialization of our food system and factory bred birds was as far fetched as zombies. But then again what do I know.
