Star Fouse Nearly Headless Nick: The nickname of the ghost of Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington, a wizard who died in a botched execution on October 31, 1492. He was hit forty-five times in the neck with a blunt axe, but a half-inch of skin and sinew remained connecting his head to the rest of his body. Nick wears a doublet, a dashing plumed hat, and a tunic with a ruff to hide the fact that his head is nearly severed.

Avani To clarify, "Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington".

Line Thanks...!

Drew Sir Nicholas de mimsy porpington. I named my cat after him.

Sami I wish I'd thought of that! Instead of naming my cat boring old 'Tigger'. Then again, she did turn out to be female, so it might be a good thing I didn't think of it. *ends pointless post*
