Until today, I had thought that “Zoombies” was just a 2016 direct-to-TV movie about a zombie outbreak at a zoo (in case you were wondering, the animals all turn into flesh-eating zombies).

But today somebody pointed out to me that the term “Zoombies” has taken on another meeting. It is currently being used to describe young people who spend all of their time glued to a screen while using Zoom.

I kind of like the word in this context — it has a nice ring to it. And I guess that in the larger scheme of things, the phenomenon is not so bad.

In any case, it’s much better than all the animals turning into flesh eating zombies.
