You know, I usually don't want to believe in supernatural things, but I will make an exception for the magical healing power of well-wishes, and of course Jose's father's incantation, that are sent via the Internet. Thank you again.

VITSSÅGEN I BLIXTFLICKANS BYXFICKA, JA!

- "Vildgåsen i Blixtfacklans fuskbyxor..." No.
- "Vitssågen i Blixtfickans byxflicka..." Nearly right! Just a little spoonerism.
- "Vitsippan i plastflaskans bön-fuxar..." No.
- "Libbstickan i gnistrande flickbyxor..." Randammit!
