    Yep, definitely adopted…left on the doorstep by a hunch-backed gnome…

    Ha, I knew it: his real name is Lawrence! Still, what an imbecilic son Lawrence’s parents have.

    There had better be a punchline. Soon please.

    By my count there are two in this strip. How many do you require?

    Lawrence must just be back from a Buckethead concert; an exceptional guitarist (Buckethead, not Larry).

    Are you kidding? Lawrence’s stupidity, as contrasted to his parents’ intelligence, is the punchline!

    Pa Croc, you may be right to bail out before dinner! Your son is a example of everything that can go wrong genetically. And all that chicken he speaks of has been on the floor and/or in contact with his butt! Run, Ma and Pa Croc, while you can (extra added bonus: take Patty and Junior with you)!

    Hope the chicken wasn’t in the beer mug

    Ok, two things here. First, gotta figure Larry’s folks are leaving right away. And second, in that third panel it seems Larry isn’t speaking crocese like the male crocs tend to (well the members of Eeta Eeta Zeeba and Larry do anyway). Yeah he should say “Stay. WE’VE go chicken” instead of “Stay. WE got chicken.” But I’ve heard people in the real world drop the contraction and sound normal. Which is to say they don’t sound like they have a serious accent as if English isn’t their native language. I read the second panel and I’m hearing crocese in my mind, but the third panel Larry sounds like the rest of his family.

    I think Larry is a Hillbilly like me.

    Anybody recognize the Colonel’s picture on the upside down bucket?? And, is that Original or Crispy on the floor?!

    Must be where Larry’s son gets his smarts.

    There’s just no pleasing parents like that, so why bother trying ? I’ll always stick up for Larry.

    This is surely something, we all expected.
