KENW Issues Zombie Alert!

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP): A New Mexico television station sent out an official emergency alert this week warning people that dangerous zombies were attacking. [And the Zombie Alert Level went from Elevated to High.]

Abq Jew first reported on the zombie relationship with Judaism back in 2010 (Torah and Talmud and Zombies; The Final Tisch: No Zombies). But now the situation here in New Mexico has apparently gotten serious. Or not.
KRQE-TV reports ( that KENW in Portales was among several around the country whose emergency alert systems were hacked.

As a result, it put out an alert on Monday saying,
Local authorities in your area have reported the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living. Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.
The station says it appears the stations had not updated the passwords on their EAS systems, making them easy targets.

KRQE also reminds viewers that while the alert was fake, if there is a real zombie attack, the only way to kill a zombie is to sever its head.

It doesn't surprise Abq Jew one bit that KENW was one of the TV stations hit by the zombie attack. KENW is actively involved in raising the dead, bringing back The Red Green Show on Thursday nights long after it had disappeared from the airwaves, cablewaves, and satellitewaves. 

The return of Red Green (see Red Green Teaches Life Lessons) has made Abq Jew very happy. Here's another reason why.

Be Happy!!  It's Adar!!
Once Adar begins, our joy increases!
Shabbat Shalom, Albuquerque!
Good Shabbos, New Mexico!
