I’m not so mean, I’m really shy
But every cobra has to die
I grab them by their little head
And whack them till they’re stone cold dead!!

Collectors note

Runner the Mustelidae was introduced on 24th June 2000.

Originally, Runner had this mean poem in his swing tag, which was later changed to a more “family-friendly” nice poem. Because of what was written in the mean poem, he is thought to be a mongoose of the family Mustelidae. although he is commonly mistaken for a ferret.

Runner was retired on 11th April 2001.
