A Nature Documentary? http://www.kunc.org/post/zombie-horror-game-inspired-nature-documentary <em>The Last of Us</em> is a new survival horror video game and it features — no big surprise — zombie-like creatures. But these are not the same old zombies that have dominated movie and TV screens in the past few years.<p>Neil Druckmann, creative director for <em>The Last of Us</em>, says he wanted a fresh new way to wipe out humanity — and he found it in a BBC documentary series called <em>Planet Earth</em>, which depicts the scary effects of the <em>Cordyceps</em> fungus.<p>"It's this fungus that burrows its way into insects' minds and completely alters their behavior," he says.

There's the "T-Virus," the "Undead Elvis," the "Dead Moines." The star, though, is "The Walking Ched." It's topped with macaroni and cheese, and the bun has been replaced with breaded and deep-fried macaroni and cheese patties, which may be beating an undead horse a bit.
