Can men love shopping? Yes they can!

First, I'm a bloody genius. Honestly. You will soon find out why.

Second, have you ever seen a zombie? I have.

Zombie, what is it?

Dictionary.com has a very nice description:

zombie [zom-bee]
noun
  1. (in voodoo)
    1. the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and will-less, by a supernatural force, usually for some evil purpose.
    2. the supernatural force itself.
  2. Informal.
    1. a person whose behavior or responses are wooden, listless, or seemingly rote; automaton.
    2. an eccentric or peculiar person.

Now that we have defined the meaning of the word, it's time to find the zombies.

Zombies will usually manifest one or several of the following :

Some studies show that the three greatest pleasures in a woman's life are sex, weddings and shopping. On the other hand, most men do not possess the genetic qualities to patiently burrow, sift, comb, browse, and rummage through heaps of clothes and shoes, which all look very much alike.

This here sounds like a conflict of interests. Therefore, I, the genius, have come with an idea that will revolutionize the man-woman credit card relationship(s) and hereby strike my claim on this invention:

Introduce video game machines to women's stores!!!

The concept goes like this:

Problem

Shopping devilish plan

All the while the women think they are misunderstood and unappreciated.

The minutes of my idea include all sorts of fine details that will make the offer all the more inveigling.

Everyone's a winner. Not only is Bob your uncle, but Bobbina is your aunt, too!
