Meathead

Fred knew he was in trouble after being in that police lineup1. People were saying that he had been implicated in a murder2.

Looking like an overstuffed ogre3, people assumed he was a meathead and up to no good4. But Fred was anything but.

30 years ago, his spaceship5 had crashed outside of New York. He had learned to navigate6 human capitalism by cutting the hull7 of his ship into small pieces and selling them as a precious metal called platinum.

If he was sent to jail, it wouldn’t be too long before they noticed how he shaved several times a day8. Questions would lead to questions.

He spun some more spaghetti into his fork9 as he heard a knock and the police announce themselves.
