Quotes / Off with His Head!

Get this damn thing off my neck
I'm the head of the board now I'm bored of my head
Sharpen up the blade, boys
What are you waiting for?
Here's where we all get ahead!
Wipe that damn smile off your face
Or we'll lop it off clean with our new guillotine
Sharpen up the blade, boys
Bells are now tolling, soon heads will be rolling

From a biological standpoint, hagfish - Myxine glutinosa - are fascinating and evolutionarily significant entities. From an aesthetic standpoint, they're pretty damn gross. I'm sure Wexler, former Brujah primogen councilor of this city, would agree with me if he could: after all, the haggish are swarming in and out of his mouth, battening themselves on his lips and spinal tissue, sucking the rich vitae from his medulla oblongata. But decapitation silences even our kind, and so, Wexler's eyes merely stare blindly at the slimy parasites.

"They divided us up, T'mani from R'larri, and made us sit on the road while they marched the R'larri out into the jo-stalk fields. It was harvest time you see. The jo fruits were ready to be cut. They use an automated laser; they can do that because every gene-sequenced stalk grows to exactly five and twenty joints. They lined the R'larri in rows, like the jo-stalks, and made each one hold up a leaf as if they were a plant. Then they sliced off their heads with the harvest lasers. Have you ever seen a hundred thousand people decapitated at once, Captain Chakotay?"
"Not that many."
"Ahh yes. But the problem is a R'larri is not a jo-stalk. Not everyone in that field was fortunate enough to be five and twenty joints high, especially the children. You see, the R'larri secondary nervous system is set lower than the main brain, so you can have the top of your head cut off and still be alive, in a fashion. I watched children stumbling about that field, alive yet dead, for five hours until they let us go."
Over-Scholar Polorta, The Flux of Mortal Things, a Star Trek: Voyager fanfic.

Abruptly the wind was there again, a savage gust of it that made me stagger to my knees. Something silver flickered past my eyes, moving so fast it was only a blur, and at the same moment, the air was full of noise and water again. But I was staring at the postie. I'd never seen a man decapitated before - well, not right in front of me, anyway. But that's cyclones for you. Nothing is more dangerous than a loose sheet of tin.
The other mailman was gawping now. His colleague's body took a few odd steps against the wind, and then fell over.
