Human brain - horse's body. When a bunch of crims meet on the cutting edge of science, anything goes! the totally hilarious sequel to Horsehead Boy.

Bluey had a shonky business deal going with his mates, who now turn up and kidnap him. When they realise they have Spud, not Bluey, they're delighted. the original scam was to divert Spud's brain from Snood's lab, put it in a racehorse called Staxa Fun and clean up at the track. With Rachel and Gazza's help they can still do it. the mates also run a cryonics business and Rachel, Gazza, Spud and Staxa Fun all end up frozen in the cryonics vat. they wake up much MUCH later - but that's another story.
