Reminds me of Steve Martin's The Man With Two Brains. (Which includes the
great quote: "Stop -- you're playing God." Martin -- *Somebody* has to!")

If Spike is going to bodyjack me, I suppose I should either hire bodyguards
for Extro-5, or cut back on my exercise routine. Darn it, I had just
returned to my sub-8 minute mile three mile runs and maximum weights on my
workouts. All wasted! However, Natasha won't be so easy to fool. Spike,
your over-developed sense of humor would give you away immediately.
