Headless body in topless bar
By Herbo Gooli
The Jeddak’s Guard on Friday entered a strip joint in Lesser Helium and discovered a naked headless body on the stage.
“It wasn’t part of the act,” said Kantos Kan, who led the raid.
Owner Rapas the Ulsio, of Zodanga, said he had no idea who the body belonged to.
“We get this a lot,” he explained. “It really freaks out the dancers.”
Warlord John Carter was detained temporarily for questioning before Kantos Kan determined that his friend was just staking out the joint in disguise, smeared from head to foot with red ointment.
“I was here on official business,” John Carter told a Blade reporter, who cornered him at the back door.
Princess Dejah Thoris declined comment.
