And that wasn't the greatest indignity zombie Bentham had to endure. During his undead tenure at University College London, students began a long and storied tradition of stealing his noggin and taking it on disrespectful adventures. Some used it to play soccer on the quad. Others carried it all the way to a train station in Aberdeen, Scotland, where it was found stuffed in a luggage locker. And like any school pet, Benthy's head was once kidnapped by a rival, King's College London (Go Royals!) and held for ransom.
School administrators eventually had to hide the head in an undisclosed location for fear of theft and possible hackeysacking.
