It's actually right in the rules insert.
"for exampe, with 'Everybody Gets 1' you must keep all Creepers you get
while drawing the cards you'll be giving to other players."

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.
