Hercules Represented As A Confusing Tangle Of Spiders' Webs

I saw him nodding forward, with his heavy hand shoved against the boy, "as a form of justice," he would say later. But it was the dead stare behind his tingling pupils as he ate the flowers that really gave me shivers. His appetite was seemingly bottomless as he then proceeded to eat a bass, a walleye, two catfish, a bluegill, and the head of a crappie, all in a distanced, unfeeling manner. Later in the evening, he decided it was time for a spontaneous branding session and put a silver dish in the oven at 500 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. As he took it out of the oven, he was shouting something about an aluminum chassis as he chased the boy around the room. The boy needed several skin grafts after that, but only spent a few months in the intensive care ward and now he is as good as new. Plus, he has that sweet brand.
