Alex attended Furman University and won the Most Interesting Employee Question-and-Answer award for this gem:
"Would you want to fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses. I would fight 100 duck-sized horses. Sure I might get tired after about 40, but if we think about it. How hard could it be to fight 100 tiny horses? However, if you go against a horse-sized duck, that thing will do some serious damage. At that size, it is basically just a Velociraptor from Jurassic Park that will chew you up like a giant piece of bread!"
