I drank a glass of Airborne (created by a second grade teacher) earlier today, and I'm still troubled by the flourescent orange residue that remained stuck to the inside of the cup. Now I'm afraid that I'm going to glow in the dark this evening.

Anyway, let's move on to the WiP:

A local beach-goer was briefly hospitalized after complaining of a splitting headache.

Proponents of safe sex believe they have hit upon a new method for virtually risk-free sex.

A woman miraculously escaped unharmed when a batch of giant marshmallows fell from a fifth story rooftop and struck her head.

And finally, after an intensive manhunt by his elves a dazed and confused Santa Claus was found wandering the streets of Copenhagen in his bathrobe.
