Danger! Zombies!

As bushfires rage across Victoria and floods ravage north Queensland (be safe, everyone), here's a little bit of craziness to take our minds from the real life horrors.

Wacky kids in Illinois have hacked into electronic road signs and changed the text.

Other signs have been changed to read 'DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES,' 'RAPTORS AHEAD - CAUTION,' and 'NAZI ZOMBIES! RUN!!'

Pretty distracting if you're driving, I imagine.

Officials aren't sure how they're gaining access to the signs, and for those of you curious about how you might hack into one of these electronic road signs once you do have access (not condoning anything, of course), a good place to start would be here.

But remember the boy who cried wolf? If we all go out and start claiming that zombies are coming when they're not, who will believe us when they really do show up?
