G’day, everybody! Byron the Quokka reporting.
Y’know, we’re tryin’ to found a college here, and Lee wants me to run another comment contest. And make readers’ birthday announcements! Crikey, I’m glad to do those things, but I think I need an assistant.
Meanwhile, Quokka University is growing by leaps and bounds. See that thing in Cousin Zoozie’s hand? That’s our official and bona fide waddayacallit for our Q.U. pick-up sticks team! Our cheerleaders will wave these and pump up the crowd to sing The Quokka Fight Song, which will intimidate and demoralize our opponents.
Go, Quokkas, fight, fight, fight! Punch and pummel, kick and bite!
Sing no lullabies, tell no lies–
And a hey-na-nonny and a ha-cha-cha!
You’d never believe that was written by anybody but a genius, would you? And what’s a university without a fight song? We haven’t decided whether to offer any courses at our college, but we’ve got a Latin motto and now a fight song, and we’ve hired a couple of deans, so we’re just about ready to open for business.
Will human students need dorms? We’ll be researching that all week. Although why anybody would need anything nicer than a snug nest in the grass, beats me.
P.S.> Here at Quokka U., anyone who wants to be a cheerleader can be one. We don’t care. The more, the merrier!

That fight song has a lot of fight in it. I never imagined Pickup Sticks being so aggressive. 🙂
Quokka U. plays for keeps!
Will the cheerleaders’ performances be posted to YouTube? The world should not be deprived of such delights.
Good work Byron. Can I be a long distance cheerleader?
All for unlimited cheerleaders, but I think a head cheerleader is needed, and I suggest Cousin Zoozie.
