How she sings as she swings through the air
Look below, there’s her field over there
With her one chute strap gone
She can still carry on
Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer

I’m not sure I’d exactly call that expression a smile, but “Smirking Jack” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. At least the Blonde in a Red Dress seems to be enjoying herself.

“Tearing Lila from the plane, Samson plunged his mighty fist into the heart of the motor.”

So, this time we learn that “Lila” is yet another of the many names of The Blonde in a Red Dress. Other than that — it’s just another day, with yet another near-death experience with aircraft.

Let a smile be your parachute

There are probably safer ways to introduce someone to Gasoline Alley than crashing a flaming airplane into it. And while it’s gentlemanly of Smilin’ Jack to share, I suspect that the Blonde in a Red Dress would have preferred to have a parachute of her own.

(Note: Wasn’t 100% sure if this cover should count towards this site’s criteria, but our panel of judges decided that “strawberry blonde” was close enough.)

Ah! I was wondering how our heroine was going to survive yesterday’s predicament.

If the fickle hand of fate itself is a member of the Blonde in a Red Dress Fan Club, her long death-defying career suddenly makes much more sense.
