“You did a really good job,” Ben remarked.  “It’s very life-like. Still creepy as hell though…”

Killed in an explosion in his laboratory by what authorities believe to be a chemistry experiment gone awry.  Forever immortalized by a giant likeness of his head leading the homecoming parade through town every year…”

“It’s honestly the nuttiest final request I’ve ever heard…” Ben shook his head. “So, you gonna help me weave these flowers in?”
