Kurt Cobain Was Lactose Intorlerant Conspiracy Zine is the tongue-in-cheek creation of Kelli, editor of That Girl and 20 Bus.
This is a half-sized, well laid out zine that presents a new conspiracy theory regarding the death of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain. Theories in the past have included everything from "the government killed Kurt" to "Courtney killed Kurt". Now Kelli presents the notion that Kurt was lactose intolerant and that a love of chesse is what killed him.
Kelli presents a well-written and defended argument, bolstered by altered photos of Cobain.
