    Chris: Hey, Animal, wanna go to Drumlandia?
    Animal: [flails and babbles wildly, pants, and yells]
    Chris: Oh yeah, ‘n’ that’s Animal. Show ’em whatcha do, Animal!
    Animal: Ah, what do! Eat drums! [loudly chews on a cymbal]
    Chris: No, no, no, beat drums, beat drums!
    Animal: [open eyes wide] beat drums! Beat drums! [hits the third tom drum three times with his head, grunting before each hit]

    I’d like to take Animal to Drumlandia, and I promise to keep him off the stage!
