A man holding a religious book tells his friend of this "awesome" book about Easter he has been reading. He quickly recounts the life of Jesus, mentioning that he died "somehow" and came back to life on Easter, going on to remark that it would make "the best" movie. He imagines a movie depicting Jesus rising from the grave as a zombie and seeking brains, but his friend tells him that he did not read the book carefully enough.[2]
