We like sweets a lot
But they make your insides rot,
So remember it's your body
And the only one you've got.

Notes

  • The title is a vocalization of the finale from the "William Tell Overture" by Rossini, as well as the punchline to the classic joke, "Where does the Lone Ranger go to throw away his garbage?".
  • The Warners cameo in a continuation of their literal running gag of being chased by Ralph.
