If given a choice between a boat and a mystery box, always choose the mystery box.

You remember that time I was supposed to get that boat? A BOAT'S A BOAT, but the mystery box could be anything. IT COULD EVEN BE A BOAT!

Or, a bear. Yeah!

Cue the National Geographic theme music ... take a look at a few more animal pictures. (Yeah!)
