    Thinking inside the box?

    “this here box”? Perhaps summer school English class is in order!

    But the downside is, they don’t serve imaginary DWFNC!

    This is so sad and so true. I hate to see kids younger than 10 with all the latest gadgets. Some 5 year old’s have better phones than the one I have.

    So, what’s the pointing of being in the box? Are they like cats, loving the sensation of frames?

    “This here,” I haven’t heard much. But if it is popular its use will spread all over.

    …or a duplicator, or a time machine…seems like there’s one other that I’m forgetting…let’s see here…opens on the top, side, bottom…nope, that’s all of them!

    As for the use of “this here,” I did some quick research. It is sort of a redundant phrase, and definitely not something you want to use in really professional writing (like in an academic journal or the likes) but its still common in conversation and various dialects/accents of English, thus acceptable in given situations, especially spoken dialogue. Therefore, it’s use in this comic isn’t really TOO much to get worked up over IMO.

    Yes, I am an English major, how did you guess?

    My mother (who was from Wiltshire in the UK) often used the phrase “thik thur” (both with a vocalised th) meaning “that there”. Ever since realising that there were different ways of speaking, I’ve been facsinated by dialect and its origins.

    Philology is also an interesting subject.

    Please do not be rude about kids who play any way that they want. This is your first warning.

    I used to convert boxes that size into cars, houses, or even tanks when I was a kid.

    Any kid who had a cardboard box to play in must have come from a rich family.
