Man Called a "Zombie" Punched in Face, Suffers Broken Nose

Let's imagine for a second that it's late at night and you're hungry. You decide to go to a nice restaurant and get a meal. You sit, the waiter approaches you, and you begin to order some food. Unless you try to order "human flesh," this should not happen to you:

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa City police are investigating an early morning assault in which a man accused another of being a zombie, then punched him twice. Police said the assault occurred at 1:17 a.m. Sunday at an Iowa City restaurant south of the University of Iowa campus.

A man was ordering food when he was approached by another man who called him a zombie, then hit him in the eye. When the victim tried to call police on his cell phone, the man punched him again, breaking his nose.

The man then ran out a back door.

The victim was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

That was from AP/Yahoo! Maybe someone had just finished watching 28 Days Later or Zombieland?

I don't know if I can impress on you how unbelievably weird this is (I mean, if you don't already realize it). I've eaten out late at night in a restaurant myself. I don't know how I'd react if I was biting into a hamburger and someone jumped out, called me a vampire, and tried to drive a stake into my heart.

Apparently Halloween has come a little early.

He was confused. Pod people are sometimes mistaken for zombies. Usually zombies noses fall off when struck, so I'm a thinkin this was a pod person.
