    If Zefrank were to narrate Buffy: "Oh this little girl is pretty. Ooh she has a funny way to speak. Each generation has a girl with all this power and... ooh this guy needs some makeup. They're actually quite vee--shush with the teeth and things. And the girl with the power passed down from many generations... oh! That is gross! It sucks blood. Hello my little friend, you have the teeth that are pointy-pointy. So she kills them and they go all dusty-dusty. And that is how a slayer do. Oh look! This is a daaae-mon who do the slurpy with a person's face. Oh! That is gross! So a slayer has the power of the many to protect and she makes the puns, and she meur-ders the things that suck the faces."
