Solution to Last Issue's Puzzler
No. After slicing Igors head off
and watching it roll down the street
and over the cliffs edge, Dr. Aubergine
had a simple substitute -- Queen Rigamortiss
severed head, described in footnote 12 of chapter 3 -- on hand.
There was nothing in the rules
to prevent Dr. Aubergine from
severing the substitute head from
the hand to which it was attached,
and so he sewed it onto Igors headless torso.
Thus Dr. Aubergine won the Blue Ribbon
and the accompanying fruit basket.
