If you could describe Ichabod in one word, what would it be? Ugly as all get out? Oh wait, that's five words. Let's try again, and we'll be less superficial this time. How about greedy? This guy wants everything—the girl, the bling, the pancakes—and his green eyes don't hide it. Irving really works his humorous chops in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," turning Ichabod's greed into an exaggerated bundle of absurdity. But our author does stick to one common convention (sorry, Gekko): greed is not good.
Ichabod's eyes are too big for his stomach. When the Headless Horseman attacks him, it serves him right.
Ichabod isn't the only greedy one around these parts. Katrina is greedy for power over guys' hearts.
