Another issue of a zine.
Printed in 2-point type and taped shut with duct tape to build
anticpation (and microscope sales).
Actual zine hoped to have
the same size front and back covers. Also, a rich creamy cover,
not actually white. As with much of the information on this
page, you'll have to take it on trust unless you get a copy
in your hands. Well, except for the few linked things.
Tie-in (and tie on) rosebud
wristlets (made of edible rice paper) will be given out with
every Veggie Delite Subway sandwich.

an indentured servant tied to the slaving-meat-wheel of mindless,
meaningless labor. She's heard there's a ritual you can perform
out in the desert with a penny, a piece of yellow legal paper,
sage, a fountain pen, mouse-droppings, and the recitation of
a few choice phrases that will put an end to global capitalism.
She's currently searching for the correct words.
