McGee finally answers the challenge and sends in a picture of Gidget (on the left) and her brother Rascal.
This guy’s lucky. If there were LEDs attached to his bottles he’d be in jail by now.

Danny decided that he wanted to have some fun with his hair before he cut it. He asked me if I would make the mohawk for him.
