Shortly after he was flattened, some kids came along and found Sailcat pancaked to the road. They then picked him up and threw him like a frisbee into the night sky, thus beginning the legend.
From that day forward, Sailcat was the feared and revered protector of all living things wishing to cross freeways.
There's danger out on the nations' roads
They're paved with snakes and flattened toads,

And he sliced it in two like a knife through a peach

"Breaker, breaker, lookout, watch your back

So the feared and revered reputation was made of Sailcat.
He's been known to chop redwoods and stop a whole fleet
When a family of tape worms was crossing the street
And when mom's having troubles with thanksgiving plans,
He has even dropped by to help open some cans
Or when someone's depressed and has had a bad day
He unerringly knows just the right things to say:
"Don't worry, C...
