      Thanks! Me am always try do something stupid. I considered dancing
      the Batusi onstage, but I decided it'd be overkill and just mugged
      with J'Onn for a bit there. It seemed to work.

      And I gotta say, I'm amazed that you could even walk around in your
      Aku outfit, let alone that it looked so good! I'm already teeming
      with excitement for next year, I gotta say.
