You know I was such a pathetic loser when I was in high school I couldn't even get a - I couldn't even get a job at a mall like this. Now I am king of the mall. You too can one day be king of the mall. That is the message I have for you today. Now we'd like to take you back to a simpler time. Yes. Back when you were fetuses. Um...heh heh.
