math and zombies

Math profs at a Canadian University have concluded that if the world were attacked by zomibes, that the zombies would take over the planet. It was the opinion of the paper, entitled, "When Zombies Attack! Matethematical Modelling of an Outbreak of Zombie Infection", that the world must act decisively to get rid of the creatures before they get rid of us. They based on the model on the swine flu virus. You have to love an academic paper that cites Compartmental Models in Epidemology as well as the horror film, Night of the Living Dead.
Who says university papers have to be dull?
