Mamma Moo Goes Swimming/Mamma Mu simmar

He hangs with his wings and looks downright gloomy when Mamma Moo shows her badge. A swimming badge, it’s not very remarkable, thinks Crow. Swimming, what is that good for? You get wet. WET. Luckily, Mamma Moo gets an idea. Crow may not be able to get a swim badge, but a FLY badge, he sure can.
