Welcome to the Seventh Annual Zombie Support and Strategy Conference
Our numbers are up 111% from last year, which is great. The blue team took out that large settlement near DC, really weakening the resistance.

As My Spiritual Life Coach Says
Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Give a man a fish and he’ll never learn to fish. A homeless man asked me for spare change after my yoga class at the temple, to which I replied with that mantra and a fishing pole. The man took the pole, beat me with it, then stole my wallet.
