[ cut to two women talking ]
Woman #1: Oh, I'm cold! Turn up the heat! And have the maid clean up the house! It's a mess!

[ cut to Bizarro being mean to animals ]
Bizarro: Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty! [ pulls axe from
behind his back ]
Voiceover: ..they have a Be Cruel to Animals Week. They prefer it, because you only have to have it once. Everything is backwards on this mysterious cube. Black is white. Hello is goodbye. Right is wrong. But even in this strange world, there is one place so bizarre, it scares even them.
