Time is already running out
My name's Avery Ant, and for the next 60 seconds I'm gonna rant
like no other ant. You could call me an insect with issues, and
I'd love to get into it with you but I've only got one minute of
See, I'm just a cartoon interstitial; so, yeah, I
don't have a big flashy set behind me, but that's not my fault.
