Labeling it as an "anti-zombie" or "get home" bag is just a fun thing to make it interesting.
Same deal behind the CDC or whoever putting out a guide about preparing a kit for a zombie outbreak. The point is to get people to think about some things that may come out of the blue like a tornado or blizzard, etc.
Though some folks take it very seriously.
Yup, zombies are a metaphor for shit going wrong. I know quite a few prepared types who always have at hand that which is needed. Zombies mentioned, referred to jokingly, don't know a single guy who thinks they are an actual possiblity....
