A Headless Monkey?
« on: August 06, 2010, 04:42:44 AM »
I know I'm going to regret this, but I'm really curious about what Howard is going to do with a headless monkey... now if there was only a red herring to go with it  ;)

I'm not sure we'll ever find out. Here's a guess, though.

The monkey is headless so they can send sensory data from the monkey's body to the victim in the jar. Torture the monkey, torture the victim. This could get really nasty since it's no big deal if the monkey dies.   :-\

Crazy idea time:  no matter what they meant to do with the headless monkey, Kaff  [Edit: oops-Karl. Didn't have time for an archive binge. hm] ends up attached to it, and controls it and manages to break free on his own.  Just like he said he would.

I think that was their plan, but...

I'm kind of expecting something like that. Although maybe not Kaff? I mean, ennesby has always wanted a hand, right?

I think you mean Karl. But yes, that's briliant, and will be hilarious to watch if it happens.

You almost called it, I think... haha!

And in this corner, we've got the Mob. But over here, we've got a headless monkey on a hoverboard!

Y'a know, I'd hate to be the Mob goon trying to explain that they have all just been terrorized by a headless monkey.

Headless monkey on a hoverboard with a knife* The mob doesn't stand a chance.


*I know it's a scalpel.

You forgot the part where Karl Tagon is the brains of the Headless Monkey operation (that might be a pun on more levels than I'm willing to think about...)

Nope.  Grenades, now.  Yeah, this should be good.

Edit:  I think I can now say that I totally called it with my crazy theory.  Although you'll note that it only happened a couple of days before the plotline appeared.  Surprising yet inevitable.
