    { id: 2, foo: 'foo', bar: 'barbar' },
    { id: 3, foo: 'foofoo', bar: 'bar' },
    { id: 4, foo: 'foofoofoofoo', bar: 'b', fb: 'foobar' }
];
print.pt(list);

// out
+----+--------------+--------------+-----------+
| id | foo          | bar          | fb        |
+----+--------------+--------------+-----------+
| 1  | f            | barbarbarbar | undefined |
