Ruby steps into a tavern called The Tickly Tentacle. Standing behind the bar, polishing four glasses at the same time, is her old friend the Tookah. Since it's a quiet afternoon, the Tookah relates to Ruby some of the schemes and scams he's run on other planets, and how he barely escaped with his tentacles intact. A few of the Tookah's amusing tales are: " I Only Have Three Eyes for You"; "Clipper & Snipper"; "The Platinum Blonde in the Pink Pillbox Hat"; "Moonless Sonata", and "It Was a Sad Day in Noodle Town". Eleven stories in total.
