TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Sam Brownback says if Kansas ever faces a zombie apocalypse, he might use a farm combine to mow them down.

Brownback had a short Statehouse ceremony Wednesday to sign a proclamation designating October as “Zombie Preparedness Month.” He told reporters that he and youngest son Mark, a high school student, have discussed how best to dispatch the walking dead.

The governor’s proclamation has the serious purpose of encouraging Kansas residents to prepare themselves for natural disasters and other emergencies.

His event with emergency preparedness officials included an appearance by 15-year-old Valley Falls student Faith Tucking portraying a zombie.

As for destroying zombies, Brownback said he and his son have discussed going to his parents’ farm in Linn County and firing up a combine, assuming they had enough fuel.
