I'm sending her right over to the Igloo, and she'll break the curse, I'm sure of it. But if anyone happens to be missing a chicken between here and the Igloo I had nothing to do with it. Now that that's taken care of, we can move on to other things.

Maybe after my Zombie Voodoo Witch Doctor (certified professional) has done her work. We'll see. Then again, maybe not, the Stagepenguin has already been sent over the edge:
