Getting ready to twerk it out in your Toddlers and Tiara costume? Good for you, but not even go-go juice can help you when the zombie apocolypse hits this fair planet.

Allegedly, we’re all good and the walking dead aren’t going to be noshing on our brains like a pumpkin bucket full of first-class chocolate treats, but JACK FM isn’t so sure.

First of all, a ton of Marines, Navy special ops, and police and fire-people attended a “counterrorism summit” in San Diego dressed as zombies and to teach them how to combat the dead creeps says the Huffington Post. The Halo-organized summit lasts for five days and is approved by Homeland Security Grant Program and the Urban Areas Security Initiative.

President of Halo Corp, Brad Barker, says that the exercise isn’t a joke and not some “type of big costume party.”  “Everything that will be simulated at this event has already happened,” Barker continued. “It just hasn’t happened all at once on the same night. But the training is very real, it just happens to be the bad guys we’re having a little fun with.”

Allegedly, the scene is set as a VIP and his posse are trapped in a zombie-surrounded village that also happens to be the center of a bomb detonation.

“No one knows what the zombies will do in our scenario, but quite frankly no one knows what a terrorist will do,” said Barker. “If a law enforcement officer sees a zombie and says, `Freeze, get your hands in the air!’ What’s the zombie going to do? He’s going to moan at you. If someone on PCP or some other psychotic drug is told that, the truth is he’s not going to react to you.”
