Some things make great

you can buy both
beer and hair dye.
Who was the genius

to jail or home alone.

Bad- A Superman cape

really need to spell
this one out?

plane. radioed them and told them that

flight. had passed out while flying. She also
told them that their two children. Lauren
and Karen. were on board.

"It sounded like a massacre or a
tragedy of some sort like a 911 call."
Larkiii said about the panicking radio sig-
