Zombie Stimuli

Rather than explain why I'm a day late in posting a link to my column from yesterday, I will simply reproduce the text of a certain e-mail I sent my editor late last night:
FROM: Jennifer
TO: Boss Guy
SUBJECT: hee hee hee

Should I be concerned about the fact that my column was posted under "Obituaries?" I know the photo has a certain corpse-like appearance, but still.
The column can now be found in its proper location here. The print-only version still has "Obituaries" at the top of the page, which I find extremely funny, especially in light of the electrocution jokes in the column itself:
Interesting times ahead, now that President Barack Obama has signed the stimulus bill. I personally couldn’t feel more stimulated if I wore a wet bathing suit and threw myself against an electrified fence.
Anyway, my buddy the photographer is coming by this weekend, so hopefully this will be the last time the scary-Goth-zombie picture makes an appearance.

Vanity, vanity, all is vanity.

Of course, I'm sure that description stimulated some people.

Only if they're necrophiliacs. You still have to click the "Obituaries" tab to find it.

I was referring to the wet bathing suit description, actually.

I know. A corpse in a wet bathing suit is still quite unsexy.

I suspect that's why this column got so many fewer readers than usual--nobody knows its there.
