Headsman

Headsman

Headsman toy set. As a Morals Tutor to America's Wealthiest Families, I often reflect on the nature of the role, and its financial dynamics. I am told that the headsmen in the old days, when they upheld public morality, were tipped generously by their wealthy clients in advance of services provided. Otherwise the axe tended to slip and multiple blows were needed. That is one revenue model, I guess, but flattery in the meantime serves me well.
