"phee, phooey, pho, phum

I smell da blut from a hyuman beeink

be he alife odder be he det

I'll make frum him a corn bif sannawitch"

a recollection from Nize Baby by Milt Gross, a dialect book from the 1920's made up of dialogue from various characters ln a tenement on the Lower East Side. One, a mother, is trying to get her "nize baby" to eat by telling him various "fractured fairy tales"--the one I am remembering was obviously Jack and the Beanstalk.


I remember these, too!

"Hey, are reek cove air? Eye yam hear,

Jack. Jack hunt in you'd: Thee pin toes

wood beware? Write hear, neck stew

the chick pees, Lou pee knees head."

That was called Jack and the Beans Talk.

Okay I never once said I wasn't fucked up.
