    He wanted nothing more than to quadruple the number of iron nuggets he'd hidden in his robotic eggshell.

    That whole mogul mole mining company rap with their huge digging claws devastating the woods and hills around his home, less and less places for hedgehogs to roll together, spikes entwined within spikes, hog within hog.
