      Max: Okay, Khadijah let's do this Q&A, I'm speaking at a nursing home and I wanna get their vote before their medication kicks in.
      Khadijah: Now, one of the biggest problems in the school district is speeding in the school zones. Now as alderman, what would you do about it?
      Max: Children are not speed bumps
      Khadijah: And?
      Max: And I'm ready for the next question, let's go.
      Khadijah: Alright, alright. Graffetti. Now, your opponent Malava favors an increase in police patrols, but now you see that could lead to higher taxes, now what do you propose?
      Max: I say it's time to win back our walls.
      Khadijah: How?
      Max: Dedication, perserverance and a word I'm not afraid to say, sweat!
      Khadijah: You know, Max, when you answer these questions it's okay to actually say something.
      Max: No, no, look, Khadijah, that's my secret. My press conference proved I know how to talk to the viewers. I mean, what you say isn't nearly as important as the rhythm. Bam, blam, ker-blam, dingity, dingity dong. Next question!

      Max: Not on my street!
