Deadpool (Marvel Super Hero Mashers)

Name That…Black Rocket

Seem like when I was a kid, everyone had some sort of toy rocket. Astronaut stuff was everywhere. I miss that.

Name That…Giraffe

I read recently that if a giraffe drank a cup of coffee, it would be cold by the time it got to the bottom of its’ neck. Why would we need to know this?
