For such a long set up, the punchline is a bit of an anticlimax.

The setup was a bit long, but yeah, this is great.

Poor Dogley!

E, due to all my pacifist experience.

Voted I for Irony.

Wait, there is no category that starts with that letter.

Oldschool. I like it.

I find I die more frequently due to RNG hating me than my pets do.
