Talk about an October surprise.
Apparently, all that movie superpowering has given "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon his own special ability to predict the future and, when it comes to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, he's already got it all figured out.
If and when Mitt Romney gets into office, Whedon says, the United States of America will finally be on the right path ... toward the zombie apocalypse.
"Like a lot of liberal Americans, I was excited when Barack Obama took office four years ago, but it's a very different world now," Whedon deadpans in this new viral video. "Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks in health care, education, social services, reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting — all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland — but it's his commitment to ungoverned corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos ... The one percent will not longer be the very rich, it'll be the very fast."
The public's best bet, he suggests, is to start learning parkour and stocking up on Spam now.
"Mitt's ready. He's not afraid to face a ravenous grasping hoard of subhumans, 'cause that's how he sees poor people already. Let's all embrace the future, stop pretending we care about each other and start hoarding canned goods. Because if Mitt takes office, sooner or later the zombies will come for all of us."
Bottom line: Zomney needs brrrrrraaaaaainnnnns!
