SUBJECT 1: (SINGING) Oh, beautiful tree absorbing CO2. I love your leaves and something, something shoe.

No, trees don't have shoes. How about--

(SINGING) What a wonderful plant that cleans the air. It's green and it's leafy and it isn't a bear. Oh, jeez. I really need some help writing these rhymes.

SUBJECT 2: Did somebody say help with chainsaw ice sculpting?


And a goldfield busting the door down?

SUBJECT 3: Did someone say help shaving a llama?


Ruby Guthrie smashing through the window?

SUBJECT 2: Well, don't worry. I love chainsawing swans from blocks of ice.

SUBJECT 3: And I can shave six llamas in under six minutes.

SUBJECT 1: That is very impressive, both of you. But actually, I said, I need help writing some rhymes for this new musical I'm working on. It's all about how amazing trees are and how they help make cities better.

SUBJECT 2: Oh, that's very different.
