  1. Don’t forget to visit the 2nd annual Zombie Farms… every Fri and Sat in October in Winterville GA.

    The government media complex would have you believe the undead must be feared and destroyed. One farmer knows better. He has discovered the secret to repressing the blood cravings of the undead and putting them to better use. So when you see strange slow moving scarecrows working nearby fields fear not. The solution to the crippled economy and global climate change is at hand: a labor force that will require no payment, never complain, never pollute the environment, and never rest.
