Just cry and he will buy you apple juice.
Not an easy thing to find on the street either.
“I have seven monies.” Where does this kid learn to talk such poor English.
Hmmm, this child speaks EXACTLY like the little kids did on the block where i grew up, and – gee – that was the supposedly ideal 1950s (which i still consider quite horrid) in a mostly Caucasian block and the neighboring location owned by a very upper middle class family, with the Street containing several business owners, two people with doctorates, two teachers, and other professionals.
Little kids just often DO speak like that, especially ones who spend a great deal of time with other kids (which is ultimately healthy). As they age both the other children and the adults encourage changes.
Of course, there are dialects as well, and not using the more widely agreed upon standards is not a measurement of anything else. I know people who shift with ease among multiple dialects, and in some of those cases also multiple languages with equal alacrity. I thoroughly lack that linguistic ability.
Not having read this strip for a long time i do not know the name of the person who prides himself on rebelliousness and is a great foil for creating candor in a different fashion, but love the insightful surprises he brings to the strip and have been recently hoping to have him at some future point startle with quotes from PubMed and the ISID’s ProMed.
Lemont looks strange in last panel. Child should back away.
Nice that he offered, though.
