We kangaroos are great boxers.

And we pitbulls simply have amazing jaws and beautiful teeth ... beautiful!  We use
them too.

I know you do.  That's why I'm here ... to remind you of how we have fought together
against mutual enemies since over a hundred years ago in the Great War.

Our ancestors did.  You know we pitbulls don't live very long.

(The kangaroo mutters something, sounding like) I wish ...

What did you say?

Just my wish for your long life mate.

Thank you!  Thank you!  You know I have amazing genes and I have described

Thank you!  Thank you!
