First, I put on my handsome face.
But it didn't work. So I got Suey to be cute.
When her 'cats pajamas' look failed, I knew I had to bring out the big guns.

First we tried sister whappage.
Then we tried brother whappage.
Then we tried wanton acts of vandalism.
All that did was get us on treat restrictions.
