Butt Hunt


I just want to let everybody know that The Santa Barbara Butt-Hunt Society will procure donations towards a fund that will reward the best butt collectors (cigarette butts) in town with prizes and accolades. It will be part of a multi-city effort to enlighten zombies about the negative effects of cigarette butts on community beauty. Each butt collected shall be worth one cent, but the biggest winners will also be awarded larger cash prizes. The competition will be awesome.
