The Secret Truth Revealed at Last

So for a time they rode the rails together, followed their feet and the setting sun.  There was that time in Denver (someday tell y’all about that), that business with Chicago (less said the better), and as for Frisco -- well, that much has passed into legend.
So after a time, Murphy felt they’d knocked around enough that he could pop the question.
“Temme, Scully.  How’s it come y’only got the one tooth?”
Now Scully bridled at bit at that.  “How’s it come you got only the one head.”
Taken aback.  “Never needed but the one.”
“Well me neither.  Damme, I never lost a tooth in my life.  This’ the only one that growed.”
