Don't lose your head over this one

Did you hear? Researchers have determined that the villain in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was actually the reanimated body of Genghis Khan.*

Turns out, the town was beleaguered by a "Headless Hordes-man."


* You may not "get" this joke if you have never read "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, or at least the movie.  Likewise, you may not like this joke if you do not know who Genghis Khan is, or anything about the "Golden Horde."  If any of the above are true, I can not help you.   Finally, in no way is the premise of this joke intended to be "real" news: both the short story of a decapitated phantasm attacking the denizens of a New England town and the news regarding "researchers" discovering his reanimated corpse are fictional.  I would like to believe this explanation is unnecessary, but there is always somebody.
