Certainly that is the main point, but that isn't what it says.  The
card explicitly tells you to draw X cards and distribute them, rather
than telling everyone else to draw in a sequence you select.

The key difference there, of course, is the change in who's doing the
drawing.  I agree that a card phrased that way would inflict the
zombie on the hapless person who draws it, but that's not what
Everybody Gets 1 says or does.
