1 Spanners: We can't freeze Paris' body and take it to a planet. We'd never get it through quarantine.
2 Serron: We could if we don't declare it to customs...
3 Iki Piki: Wait a minute. Are you actually proposing we take a risk to potentially help Paris?
4 Serron: Oh. No, I was thinking we could use her body to transport some... er... goods I might have. Hypothetically.

A reader wrote to tell me that I was using my apostrophe incorrectly in Paris' body, and that it should be written Paris's body, because the rule of leaving off the s after the apostrophe only applies to plural nouns, such as when talking about the horses' saddles.
Although this does make sense from a pronunciation point of view, it is not a hard and fast rule of English grammar. Several well-regarded manuals of English usage and style indicate that either method of using an apostrophe on a person's name that ends with an s is acceptable, so long as one is consistent. And, since I began this way, I'll stay consistent.
Either way, you may now call me inconsistent.
