    Boys lazing around, jabbering from one thing to another.

    SOOOO much information in one strip!!!! The NYPD , at the turn of the last century, had Italian translators because of the large influx of Italian immigrants. The boys should have learned the knuckle trick to know how many days are in each month.

    make a fist, knuckles up.
    Starting with the first knuckle, count off the months using both the knuckles and the space between them. On the last knuckle (July), go back to the 1st knuckle and keep going—or continue on the other hand’s 1st knuckle.

    Knuckles are 31 days (Jan, Mar, May, July, Aug, Oct, Dec) and the spaces are 30 days or less.

    Or the old rhyme, 30 days hath September, April, June, and November, all the rest have 31, except February which has 28, 29 in Leap Years.

    As we can see here, Thread drift was rampant well before the Internet was thought of.
