‘I Will Always Love You’ isn’t an easy song to sing. That’s why the late Whitney Houston’s flawless take on the Dolly Parton-penned tune became one of the biggest hits in music history. But a woman on an American Airlines flight between Los Angeles and New York’s version of the song wasn’t as well received.
Passenger complaints didn’t stop the wannabe Whitney from singing the tune over and over again, and the unwanted performance became so overwhelming that the flight made an unscheduled stop in Kansas City so the songstress could be escorted off the plane by police officers.
Even in handcuffs she continued to belt the song out.
After being interviewed the unnamed woman was released without any charges. Her excuse — that she was diabetic — is a bit odd. But we guess there’s nothing technically illegal about singing your favorite song on repeat while cruising the friendly skies.
Despite the flight crews’ insistence that nobody record her being taken off the plane, a sneaky passenger was able to get some footage. You can check out the video below, which does feature audio of her singing. Was it so bad the flight needed to be diverted? We’ve also included the classic Whitney Houston take so you can compare.

3. Love in a Jar
I love this idea from the New Nostalgia blog. She shows you how to write all of the reasons why you love Mom on small slips of paper to put into a decorated Love Jar. On those days when Mom is feeling blue, she can pull out the slips of paper and know that she is loved and appreciated.
This is my friend Mike with his cat Connor. Who doesn't love awesome cat pics?
Just when you thought the bacon fad was fizzling out, J&D's Foods --the same Seattle-based company that brought us the bacon coffin and bacon mayonnaise (all real products) -- now has introduced Bacon Sunscreen.
Why? According to the release, "science has shown us that 10 out of 10 people prefer the smell of Bacon to coconut, which makes this the most anticipated new product of the summer."
This is one done by Henry I recently found. For some reason he's been BEGGING us to get him a pet pig. I'm sure he'll be on to something else soon enough...but for now the pig obsession remains. And here is his drawing, "Star Pigs"
