When you're high on drugs, there are few things more dangerous than a trio of mischievous older brothers. 

Millicent Phillips had just returned from having her wisdom teeth removed when her older brothers Cabot, Hudson and Barrett informed her that the they were in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, USA Today and others reported.

"State and local official have reported cases of high fever, nausea, death and even cannibalism," a fake "Center for Disease Control" broadcast blared suddenly over the radio. A call from "mom," also apparently in on the joke, confirmed that they needed to return home as soon as possible.  

It went on from there — and of course the whole thing was caught on film.

Despite being high on tooth removal drugs, Millicent sprang into action, decrying her brother's decision to fill the car with garden equipment and instead made a compelling case for Second Amendment rights.  

"Cabot, a garden hoe isn't what we want," she said. "We have guns, why are you putting garden equipment in the car?"

Self-defense training was brief.

Eventually the devious brothers broke the news that there was no virus or cannibals or zombies and that they would not need guns or garden hoes in self-defense and that they would return home.

"I'm sorry." they said when it was over. "We love you."

And so all's well that ends well ... for now.
