Re: 1664: Mycology

That title text is almost identical to the plot of Zombicorns by John Green, available for free download here: http://effyeahnerdfighters.com/post/2835409604/didnt-get-your-chance-to-get-your-hands-on-john

Ignore the cover. The book has nothing to do with unicorns.

Re: 1511: "Spice Girl

Getting back to the topic of bumper stickers, people:
