Concerned Citizen
Jim Meedsden, Circus Elephant Scarer

Shocked Man
Burt Sprinkler, Radio Talk Show Cynic

"Oh, I don't know. What does one of his newspapers think?"

John Tharsden, Bodybuilder Oilerupper

"Were the foxes ever consulted when he took the name Fox?

Oh, they were, just checking."

Old Gipper

Ape Man

"It'll only be a matter of time until he makes a claim on the actual sky and charge little birdees to fly through it. I'm not sure if I'm more angry that he could do it, or that I didn't get that idea first myself."
