After being bitten by rabid penguins a showtunes- singing linebacker learns to see in the dark

It will be good for your post-football career, my agent said.

The only good thing about having rabies is the light sensitivity it helps me see in the dark, which is a skill I will need, as I will survive if only so I can fire my agent. Which I will do as soon as I get back to:

    Like I said that one was easy, penguins, showtune-singing linebackers and being able to see in the dark all flow together nicely. I had to skip:

    Flipping through the plots I now know were most of the plots for the Sci-Fi channels movies come from.

    Great way to do the scenario. I especially liked the song title you linked with it..goes well in context.
