Quote #4

"McGrew," they will say, "does a wonderful jobsk! / He hunts with such vim and he hunts with such vigor, / His New Zoo, McGrew Zoo, gets bigger and bigger!" (30.6-8)

At least McGrew imagines himself working hard to earn his praise. He sure imagines with vim and vigor.

Quote #5

"WOW! They'll all cheer, / "What this zoo must be worth!/ It's the gol-darndest zoo / On the face of the earth!" (35.1-4)

The grand finale of praise. Just look at all that admiration: CAPS, exclamations points, italics! Simmer down, McGrew.
