Nice Idea - I Hope the Hack use it.

Would it be aright if I added this in prominent place at the Jonah Hex Coral? I's credited it to you of course, but maybe if we can get this on every hex fan site, bulletin board etc some of it might sink in!

Daz, feel free to use it anyway you wish. I hope at the end of the film they have a disclaimer "No zombies were created in the filming of this movie."
