Zombies in Training at Fish and Wildlife Service

Employees at the Fish and Wildlife Service's offices in Arlington, Va., have come up with a novel way to get in shape. The Washington Post's Al Kamen reports that they're learning "how to dance like a zombie, dress like a zombie and do the [Michael Jackson] Thriller dance," according to an email he uncovered.

Classes are every Wednesday from 4:15 to 5 p.m. in room 530 of the agency’s offices in Arlington — “subject to getting bumped by groups with legitimate need to use room 530.”

Lest you think that all of this zombie training is taking place during working hours, the email is careful to note that employees must either use annual leave to attend the classes or arrange their schedules so that their work day is completed before they begin.

Presumably, actually feasting on the brains of co-workers also is prohibited.
