How does Mike eat and breathe?

I imagine this would necessitate a pretty good air filtration system as well.

Re: How does Mike eat and breathe?

It clearly uses Time Lord technology. Bigger on the inside.

Let's see who takes the bait.

Re: How does Mike eat and breathe?

He doesn't eat and breathe. He just relaxes!
