However, the trio soon discover that the ice wall surrounding the valley is barely holding back a massive body of water behind it and the melting state threatens to break the wall and flood the valley. With their one chance of survival being a boat at the other end of the valley, the trio make a desperate exodus there. Along the way, they meet Ellie, a female mammoth who is convinced that she is an opossum like her brothers. While the strange group continues their trek across the valley, they must learn to get along. Manny struggles to find some connection to Ellie, who may be the only other one of his kind

Jay Leno's headlines by Jay Leno( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Headlines : real but ridiculous samplings from America's newspapers ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The reason these headlines appealed to me is because they were never intended to be funny in the first place. That they're checked and rechecked by a proofreader makes them funnier still. In this book we've deliberately avoided using headlines from tabloid or so-called "pulp" newspapers because the double entendres found in them are often intentional. It's when they're not but show up anyway in the local gazette, that you have to laugh. In the same way that a joke is funnier in church, a silly headline seems even sillier when it appears in a respected "organ of the people." I'd like to thank the viewers of The Tonight Show who contributed the headlines that appear here and have made it possible for me to donate all author proceeds to charity. - Introduction
