Zombies can’t kiss, and everybody knows that. But yesterday, the weirdest thing happened.
You see, taking out trash is my job. I’m a trashman. So one night, at precisely 12:09 am, I went to take out the trash. Naturally, I went in the alleys collecting garbage. But, when I got to 32nd Street, I saw this weird blue man with another woman just like him. I figured it was a zombie species, the most feared. I got a closer look, and they both leaned in and...well, I don’t have to tell you everything.
