Is she hoping the chain will snarl in her huge earring and send the chain flying back at him?

When I sign in for the Miss Universe blog, I get sent to the UK version. Is there something you aren’t telling us about just where the Surface to Air flight is, um, landing? Please don’t say you let Lamar progam the flight plan!

Unfortunately, balance beam is not a men’s event.

Is Lamar their coach?

(All your base are belong to us does NOT come to mind.) 2) Never play with the fuse. Not a good idea in any circumstance.

Hop on Unca, we’ll be like Slim Pickens – in reverse.
