Review: 2020.386 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: the zombie dad chugging the root beer was a unique image.

Con: There’s some kind of vague environmental message here, I think, but I can’t make heads or tails of it. Is it making fun of environmentalists (because the preservative-free wood in the fence falls apart) or what?

  1. I didn't think there was an environmental message here. It was just about the unending worries of parenthood.
