…blame the Russians:
A LOUD explosion and ball of fire that people in central Mexico reported seeing in the sky was actually a Russian satellite plunging back to earth, experts said.
“We think it was the space wreckage of a Russian satellite that was catalogued by the Department of Defense of the United States and which we knew could pass over Mexican territory,” engineer Fernando de la Peno said.
Mr De la Peno is also a chief proponent of establishing a Mexican space agency[*].
Anyway. Russian military ‘recon’ satellite, disappearing crater, fragmented re-entry… yeah. Zombies. What’s Spanish for ‘space zombies,’ anyway? The colloquial one, at least? ‘Llllllooooooosssssssss cerebrrrrrooooooosssssss’ I more or less already worked out on my own.
*Hey, remember the days when the American response to the last sentence quoted there would be an indulgent, patronizing chuckle, and not a rueful “I remember having one of those”?
PS: There are not just Mexican zombie flicks.
There are Mexican masked wrestling zombie flicks. Because God loves you, and wishes for you to be happy.
