WASHINGTON – Arizona has been known to lure new residents with its favorable climate and low taxes, but three new studies may give the state a fresh appeal: zombie apocalypse survivability.
Travel site Hopper and real estate search firm Estately recently ranked Arizona as a good place to be in the event of a zombie outbreak, while online real estate firm Trulia took the other tack, ranking the state as less zombie-friendly than others.
In both scenarios, Arizona came out as good for those with a heartbeat.
The rankings – based on such things as good-for-zombies obesity ratings and traffic tie-ups and good-for-humans gun ownership and hardware stores – are the latest in the offbeat “best of” lists that pop up regularly from companies seeking a little buzz.
