Things a Koala Would Say

From McSweeney's a somewhat comprehensive list of Koala sayings:
  • Eating leaves is fun!
  • Climbing trees is fun!
  • No, you're the cutest ever.
  • Love me!
  • Camus is boring. I find Karl Jaspers's philosophy much more enlightening.
I would add:
  • I love bacon!
  • Where's my tree?!
More on their website...

What would you say if you were a koala?
