    "If fighting is sure to result in Victory,
    Then you must Fight!"

    -Sun Tzu

    And i'd say that he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do pal becuz he invented it!
    And then he perfected it so that no living man could best Him in the Ring of Honor!
    Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth and then he hearded them onto a boat and beat the Crap out of every single one!
    And that day forward anytime a bunch of animals are together in one place its called a zoo!

    Unless it's a farm!
