The Dead Man's Brains

Once in this town, there lived a man named Brown. It was years ago on this night, that he was murdered out of spite. We have here his remains. First, let's feel his brains.  Now here are his eyes, still frozen with surprise. This is his nose. Here is his ear. And here is his hand, rotting flesh and bone. But his hair still grows. And his heart still beats, now and then. And his blood still flows. Put your fingers in it. It's nice and warm. That's all there is, except for these worms. They are the ones that ate the rest of him.
