SPOKEN: Hello, ev'ryone, This is your Action News reporter
With all the news that is news across the nation on the scene
At the supermarket. There seems to have been some disturbance here.
Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?
SPOKEN: Yeah, I did. I's standin' over there by the tomaters

'n' he just appeared outta the back. Come streakin' around
The grease rack there-didn't have nuthin on but a smile!!
