Flip Top Head Cheerleader Murder! Cheerleader brains

Another victim of the 'Flip Top Head Serial Killer' was found yesterday, at the Union Wells High School in Odessa, Texas. Early reports name the victim as Jackie Wilcox, 18, who was attending the annual prom when the highly illogical killer struck.

BRAINS!
Previous attacks saw the victims head's sawn open and their brains removed. One leading theory suggests the killer may either be a zombie or the, previously thought dead almost two centuries ago, scientist Victor Frankenstein. Top pop shrink, Gag Halfrunt, had this to say: "Vell, ze brain is like, you know, a big jelly. Perhaps ze killer vasn't allowed jelly at hiz birthday party. Just taking out childhood fruztrations on zoociety, you know? Tasty jelly!"

BACK TEETH
Saner commentators refuse to speculate on whether the killer is eating the brains or merely attempting to remote control the brainless bodies for comedic value. One thing that is generally agreed upon now is that no toothbrush companies are involved. The original speculation that these victims were the result of a live action 'flip top head' advert gone wrong has been disputed by police and toothbrush companies alike. While the killer is still at large the companies have agreed not to show any more adverts of strange cartoon men cleaning their back teeth. Yesterday it was also announced that adverts for Brain's Faggots will be off the air for the time being and it was stressed that although faggots are made of offal, no human brains are involved.

WRIST WATCH
The police have given the 'Flip Top Head' serial killer a secret codename that we, at The News of the Universes, can exclusively reveal to be 'Swatch'. At this time we cannot say if the reason for this odd codename is because the killer is an 80s fashion victim or is attempting some strange and gruesome promotion of Internet Time. Some reports even suggest that the killer has been attempting to sew a zip into the victim's heads. Rumours that the killer is trying to use his victims as skin suits has been strenuously denied by the spokesperson for the ultra secret organisation UNIT: "All this talk of skin suits is ridiculous! Who on earth would come up with such a silly idea?!"

FREAKS
Yesterday's victim, Wilcox, recently hit the local headlines after she rescued a man from a burning train wreck. Is she another one of these new freaks we have previously reported on? Our informants tell us that there are now dozens, perhaps hundreds, of confirmed 'super powered' people out there. If so, what was Wilcox's power? Some speculate that she may have had the ability to suck in fire and spit it out like a dragon. Others think she may have possessed to power to control fire itself, making it dance out of her way. Whatever the truth we can surely add her to the freak hall of fame, along with a creepy little man who can turn beavers into gold, the woman who can command snakes and other reptiles, the doctor that can imbue human-like intelligence into orangutans and the the old man that can control dentures from great distances.
