Zu & His Ball

The ball is the important thing in life. Not "a" ball, THE ball.

"There's the ball!"
(Note the tip of the tongue sticking out of the mouth, demonstrating the intense concentration and serious nature of the quest)

"Gimme that ball"
(Once in his range, no ball is safe from his savage attack)

"I have the ball"
(Securely in his grasp, the proud warrior displays his trophy)

"Okay, I'm ready for my ride."
(Settling back on his haunches (and laurels), Mr. Zu graciously awaits propulsion. Royalty doesn't deign to walk)
