SCENE 2 

 Interviewer: So would you say you have good personal skills? I mean, you are a large junglle cat, after all
/points to smile on his face, throws up hands
Interviewer: But would if a customer comes in and they are upset? What do you do then?
/stands up and does the running man
Interviewer: I... think we have to go in another direction
/hangs head

SCENE 3

UPS Manager: I understand that you have driven a zamboni?
/nods furiously
UPS Manager: Strangely enough, that more than qualifies you to work for us. Congratulations, you're hired! Probably because this is the clearly German version of the company.
/Stands up and does running man
UPS Manager: You can start today! Here is your uniform, go get read and we will start training today!
/Goes to change. Comes back
UPS Manager: GOOD LORD, MAN, WHERE ARE YOUR PANTS?!
/Points to tail
UPS Manager: That's disgusting!  Get out! Get out of the office!
/Hangs head

Someone, please. Stanley isn't fit to be released into the Everglades. His felt suit gets bogged down by water, and he isn't much of a hunter. Please hire Stanley.
