Double hanging (part 5)


Kid Bronco:
All that study in Hangman's School paid off. The amount of slack rope when the trapdoor lever was pulled was measured perfectly in relation to their body weight. Technically speaking, I suppose you could say they were dead the instant the ropes snapped tight, but the involuntary pumping of their boots for ten-seconds suggested otherwise. As the hangman had hoped, their necks weren't entirely broken. Rather, their spinal cords were partially ripped from the base of their brains. Confused nerve impulses were fired off, causing 'em to pump air with their boots while, at the same time, squirting out their thick death-loads of joy juice into denim and leather.
