“They don’t know what to do — the old people,” Sam says, returning with our caffeine. “At funerals, you know.” So he came up with the idea of sending them down here — to hang out with frolicking dead animals. Maybe human heaven will be just as much fun.

I don’t like killing animals.” Then how did all these dead animals end up here? “Road kill,” Sam answers. “And accidents.” Sam says that all the chipmunks came from local golf courses.”
