'Pixie dust' = Salamander dust, no wait- pig dust, I mean stem cells

Pixie dust does have a better ring than non-human stem cell regenerative reduction sauce.

Teen in tux saves stranger in store
This is not a rip on CPR class or saving lives- all very necessary and noble causes.

I was a little disappointed that he was not in a tux and CNN was promoting T-shirt sales based on their clever title.
These young kids were just having a little fun. A pilot took a flight attendant to the woods after boozing her up at a local diner and they lost their clothes. Thanks to alarmed neighbors and the heat-seeking equipment on a local helicopter, the pilot was found crouched behind a shed in only "flip flops and a wrist watch". She was charged with theft and "other offenses", but the article does not explain.
