Supposing there was horoscopes for dead people
Me and the boys was hanging out at Tony’s Barbershop last Thursday. Tony didn’t have any
customers so we was sitting back playing Just Supposing. That’s where we each suggest something
Jimmy Suspenders started us off, “What if there was Horoscopes for dead folks?”
Tony added, “That seems right mean. What if it was for Zombies?”
Mumford Pickens offered, “We could make it for folks who have crossed over. That seems nicer.”
Here’s what we settled on and what each sign says: Horoscopes for the Hereafter

They change when the timber of their humming changes and they start using buzz saws.”
