It has come to my attention that my esteemed colleague and dear friend Mr. Isaac “Gordon” Freeman is asserting that he is the creator, arbiter and herald of Head Spats.

I would like you to know, gentle readers, that it is I who am the source of the name Head Spats, and the Freeman is merely an aper of his betters, like unto a child who in an effort to attract the attention of his elders bleats “Excuse me” over and over without grasping the substance of what he is saying.

It cuts me deeply to have to call him out thus, for he is a friend close to my heart, but in the matter of Head Spats he is a vexatious mendicant, a popinjay, strutting in a suit of rags and tatters. Do not be fooled by his claims.
