  1. Another one bites the dust
    Another one bites the dust
    And another one gone, and another one gone
    Another one bites the dust
    Hey, I’m gonna get you too
    Another one bites the dust

  2. This guy did even better than the one in Ohio. TWO perpetrators exterminated.

    Another happy ending.
