"Look!" said Beldar, carefully moving the lower limbs of the mummy back and forth. "You can see they lie naturally up along the body."

"Huh. You don't think its posture is just a freak result of the final catastrophe?"

"Not at all. That fool Klemper got it backwards: they stood on the long tentacles and used the short ones to feed. All the museum's statues are upside down."

I thought about our most popular diorama, in which a mother creature puts food in the mouth of the young. "So you're saying the mouth is the opening at the other end?"

I wonder why the site owners took out the italics in my contribution? I think they're important.

I hardly think we were picking on you, as your comment suggests. It was a simple copy/paste from the text of the existing page, something that will not pull across formatting tags. If it's such an insult to you, though, we'll refrain from featuring your work in the future.
