I know about the Illegal Pit and the fights that go on in there between the digestion worm and Jarba the Hitta.

I know about Trash Man, the large dog that fell down in a space mop factory mere moments after falling down in a space glue factory, then fell down in a space man factory. I know about his catchphrase, "If you say so!" Classic Trash Man!
