***Well, I hope you enjoyed our brief makeover. Our more astute readers may have noticed the date of the blog revamping...so no doubt you'll be pleased we're back to our old appearance. Now, without further ado, let's get back to the manuscript, shall we?***
EXT. THE ZOMBIE DRIVEWAY - NIGHT
(EDGAR, A PIMP)
EDGAR IS WEARING A RAGGEDY CORDUROY SUIT AND A FEDORA, AND IS CARRYING A SUITCASE. HIS WHOLE FASHION AND DEMEANOR IS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF THE '50'S. HE IS WHISTLING A JAUNTY TUNE, AND BEGINS SINGING "GOOD VIBRATIONS" BY THE BEACH BOYS UNDER HIS BREATH. HE GETS INTO HIS CAR, WHICH IS A PURPLE CADILLAC FROM THE '50'S WHICH HAS CLEARLY SEEN BETTER DAYS. HE LOOKS OVER HIS SHOULDER AS HE BACKS THE CAR OUT. GREG FULTON'S RIDING MOWER PUTTERS BY. EDGAR STARTS TO DRIVE. WHILE DRIVING, HE NOTICES THAT HIS SHOE IS UNTIED. HE LEANS DOWN TO TIE IT, AND HE LEAVES ONE HAND ON THE WHEEL. OF COURSE, THE HAND BECOMES DETACHED WHEN HE LEANS OVER, AND THE DISMEMBERED HAND CONTINUES TO STEER THE CADDY. WHEN ED STRAIGHTENS BACK UP, HE PULLS THE HAND OFF THE WHEEL AND STICKS IT BACK ON HIS WRIST. HE COMES TO A RED LIGHT AND STOPS. A PIMP PULLS ON ONE SIDE OF HIM IN A SIMILAR CAR AND A SIMILAR FEDORA. THE PIMP IS DULY IMPRESSED BY ED'S PIMPIN' STYLE.
Hey, nice car, esse!
Thank you! That's a fine automobile you're driving, as well.
You going to work tonight?
Oh, you'd better believe it. Another day, another dollar, eh?
You're the big daddy, esse!
(tipping his hat)
Yes, in fact I have three children. Have a good night!
THE LIGHT TURNS GREEN AND THEY BOTH DRIVE OFF IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS.
