Complains the pandemic kept him in isolation for 3 years, responding to accusations of being a pangolin, and now he can hardly work a game for "furries" asking to see his tongue. Sick!
Talking to him off the record, I think he's willing to go smokey gray and orange, and could self-identify as a possum--though not sure how he can work that into his act. Maybe just play dead, or scrounge dogfood after dark.
