Pearls before Swine

Racism? Baby Talk? or 'Foreigner Talk'?

This page is set up to focus on the language used in the comic strip Pearls before Swine in the episodes involving the crocodiles and the zebra. The crocodiles are depicted clearly as not being very smart, and the language they use seems to be to be a blend of AAVE (or stereotypical perceptions of AAVE) but also with some elements of baby talk (/w/ substitutes for /r/, as in 'thwoo' for 'through', etc.), /d/ for 'th' ('dat' instead of 'that'), /f/ for 'th' ('mouf' for 'mouth') deletion of /l/ ('pease' for 'please') and also 'foreigner talk', i.e. lengthened 'e' vowels, as in 'beeg' for 'big', 'gud eveneengs' for 'Good evening' and so on. Also grammatical elements such as 'me' for 'I' and negation with 'no', e.g. "Me no want lecture", 'we is' for 'we are', 'you gets' (for 'you get'), 'bootifuls couch', etc.

Here are some samples of these encounters, which I downloaded from the strip's website. The plot here is that the crocodiles have moved in next door to the zebra, and wish to eat him, but wish to convince him that it is okay for this to happen, rather than just attack and devour him. Zebra resists, usually by refuting the (stupid) arguments of the crocodiles.

Purposeful Design or Mindless Process?
In 1802, English clergyman and theologian William Paley expounded his reasons for belief in a Creator. He stated that if while crossing a heath, he were to find a stone lying on the ground, he might reasonably conclude that natural processes had put it there. But if instead he were to find a watch, he would scarcely come to the same conclusion. Why? For the simple reason that a watch has all the hallmarks of design and purpose.
PALEY’S ideas had a profound influence on the English naturalist Charles Darwin. Yet, contrary to Paley’s logic, arwin later proposed that the apparent design in living organisms could be explained by a process that he termed “natural selection
