squirrel getting hit with ball, etc.).

to the player using one of many
nicknames. In this game the nickname choices include at least the
So, for example, Buzz might say "Get
off my lawn, Spud". Or "Get off my
lawn, hotshot". Many of these statements are said sometimes with
player reference, sometimes without. If the statements tends to usually
include a player reference it will be noted in the list below by using
the word player in parenthesis...like this...(player).
