Take The Zombie Apocalypse Seriously, Or It Could Cost You Your Life

Love. Why does it have to be so complicated?

Yesterday, Gawker reported about a 26-year-old from Long Island who shot his girlfriend because she expressed doubts about the realization of a zombie apocalypse. He, on the other hand, was a believer. Religious disputes can really tear a relationship apart, can’t they?

The man, Jared Gurman, is apparently a big fan of AMC’s “Walking Dead” — a TV show about zombies — and he insisted that his girlfriend swear her allegiance to the zombie flag. She, however, refused to back down and well, mayhem ensued.

“He feels strongly about the possibility that some military mishap could occur. She thinks it’s ridiculous,” [police] told reporters. “She was not taking him seriously or taking the show as seriously as he does.”

In the early hours of Monday morning, a text exchange between the two became heated, and Gelderman went to Gurman’s apartment to calm him down.

However, Gurman, who greeted her with a .22 caliber assault rifle, refused her efforts to defuse the situation, and as soon as she entered the apartment, Gurman shot her in the back.

“Her injuries are a shattered rib, a pierced lung, a pierced diaphragm and she is in serious, but stable condition,” Cote said, noting that Gurman drove Gelderman to the hospital himself.

Police arrested Gurman at the hospital and charged him with attempted second-degree murder.

So, um…what did Gurman do to his mom when she broke the news to him that the Easter Bunny wasn’t real? ‘Cause if he can do all this to his girlfriend over a TV, lord knows where it all started from.
