In summary, the new ball boy at Wimbledon this year has an unusual request for payment - Kibbles and Bits. This leads to speculation about the dynamics of having a dog as the new First Puppy and the potential for dog drool on the balls during the match. The conversation also brings up the game "World of Goo" and the possibility of using vacuum pumps in the game. It is also mentioned that the ball girls may be missing due to the presence of the new ball boy.

Ought to be some "interesting" dynamics with strings of dog-drool hanging off the balls.

World of goo?
So that's what lies at the end of those darn vacuum pumps, a salivating dog's mouth!
So where are the ball girls then?

When the server holds up a ball to show it to the opponent, you'll have to count which game they are on as to whether he's displaying "new balls" or simply letting the other guy know a slobber drenched spinner is on the way.
