A brunette, a redhead and a blonde get captured and are placed before a firing squad.
They are about to be executed when the brunette says “Look….Hurricane” and she points and gets away.
The redhead girl says “Look….Tornado” points and gets away.
Finally the blonde tries to do the same thing but she shouts “Look…FIRE”.
