"Because, man, it's just guinea pigs. I draw guinea pigs." You cracked me up there :p
Re word clippings - yall: In Australia "youse" (pronounced like the sheep "ewes") is sometimes used to indicate the plural use of "you". It's considered unsophisticated, however, and has class associations. Is that used in America?

Hi!! It looks like youse is used in places like New York City and New Jersey, but by far the most well-known one here is yall, which non-southerners find very funny and primitive. I don't really blame them. I cannot listen to the New York accent without thinking of an uppity, well-off woman talking loudly on her phone while sipping cawfee.
