In fact, it was quite entertaining to have around, with its lively participation in any conversation that sprang up. It even had a macabre sense of humor, always making head jokes, "You haven't a head on your shoulders," "Look, I don't mean to head you off," or "Don't you worry your little head about it."

No matter how vigilant everyone promised to be, at some point during the visit the pet invariably wound up licking the head's face, and sometimes even worse.
