35. Monsters Like Medallions
Every Hepcat swinging monster about town needs only two things: cool clothing and easily-controlled mind slaves who carry out evil wishes quickly and without fees.
Luckily, a monster can achieve both of these things with one fashion accessory: a trendy medallion complete with the hypnotic powers of darkness and the netherworld.
One glance into its ruby-red jewel and mortals will be standing in line to drone, “Yes Master.”
The one flaw in the plan is that mind-controlled slaves are very efficient at running errands and creating mayhem but not so good at vacuuming.
