Re: Toughest FJ! clues Season 32 (9/14/15 - 7/29/16)

If this doesn't show up in a weird news category, I'll be very disappointed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47232355 A Canadian vodka distiller has lost 30,000 litres of valuable iceberg water in what appears to be a heist. Iceberg Vodka CEO David Meyers says he is mystified as to who - ...

(side note: got to take a 757 out of Santa Ana once; between the overpowered engines and the noise abatement procedures, it's the coolest thing ever) How so?
