Howdy breathers. Your old & rotten pal Obvious Zombie here, and have I got a meaty treat for you GoD readers! Get this. One of you meat sacks went and created a ZOMBIE-themed Tarot deck called The Zombie Tarot: An Oracle of the Undead. Maybe things have changed since my brain turned into gray goo, but from what I remember Tarot decks are used to tell the future. Yes? No? Maybe so?
Being the kindly monstrosity that you all know I am, I’m going to save you some time. Look deeply into my crystal baaaaall. I see you & I together. We’re out. For a nice bit of lunch, it seems. Hrmmm. Your future…it’s hazy. Wait. Oh, silly me. I see it now. We’re not *at* lunch. You *are* my lunch… Ha! I kid the living! But seriously though. That’ll be $50.
I’m sorry. I seem to go off message a lot ever since that dude in Walmart took a Louisville to my left lobe. DON’T WORRY! We were just playing a round of Catch You, Eat You. Contest. CONTEST! Right.

Remember when it all began? That spill of toxic sludge on Route I-95 that spawned a zombie outbreak? With the impending apocalypse headed our way, are you prepared for another attack? Is your fallout shelter stockpiled with canned goods and first-aid supplies? One thing you will surely need when looking for advice and insight during these trying times is The Zombie Tarot.
The Zombie Tarot can help you decide whether to remain barricaded inside your fallout shelter, head for the government-sponsored refugee camps, or proceed directly to the Gunz-R-Us. In any situation, you can consult The Zombie Tarot to determine the best course of action. It features:
· 78 illustrated cards, complete with severed limbs, cannibalistic children, and loads of weaponry
· A 96-page full-color instruction booklet to help you interpret your readings
· Indispensible advice for the zombie uprising, such as “Always, always keep the shotgun loaded”
· Helpful tips for conducting a reading
The Zombie Tarot makes the perfect gift for your comrades in the fight against the zombie horde, the host of your next apocalypse-preparedness drill, and even for the nonbelievers in your life (they’ll thank you when the time comes!).
