Covered it in mustard or the condiment of your choosing, whatever gets you through this frenetic “dog-eat-dog” world of ours.

the label: “The Waltzing Wallabeagle”
You might think that the image of a German “Pale Eagle” riding along in the pouch of a yellow footed wallaby is a “tale” created by someone with an overactive imagination, but you would be gravely mistaken. This predatorial team-up dubbed the “Wallabeagle” invaded our shores at the turn of the century and upon their arrival wreaked havoc on the local fauna. To date, the devastating duo’s only natural predator seems to be the Barefooted Gigantopithicus-Bynum, a natural mammalian pest with origins out of California.
