They finished their written apology with the statement, “Sorry. My bad.”

    The first step is to admit that you have a problem.

    Perhaps you could benefit from our 3-step program? We have helped a lot of Mass Murder Addicts, and I believe we can help you too. For instance, we have one member who has just earned his 10 year 5 year 1 year 6 month 1 month chip! One whole month without killing hundreds of thousands of people! That’s the kind of progress you can expect if you join.

    Our program is built on 3 simple steps:

    Step 1. Admit that you have a problem.
    Step 2. Identify the group of people you’d like kill.
    Step 3. Don’t kill them.

    If you follow those 3 simple steps, you can live a full, genocide-free life!
