Kenny thinks they missed one passage of the message, which reads: "Please send more dogs and cats at once - stop - also need more wallpaper paste & a jar of mustard - stop - If this message arrives past our 30 minute guaranteed delivery time use the enclosed bullet to shoot the messenger -stop- Please charge to our account and apply any reward points toward the wallpaper paste - stop - Think green - recyle this bottle"
