Here I am-

what's left of me.

Did you bring

any presents, ma?

Oh, Honeybell, it ain't me

you want. It's the presents.

Stop talkin' to ma and

let her get her breath.

Hello, ma.

Hello, Ellie May.

Oh, gee, you look

pretty, ma!

Do i, hon?

Where's my present?


Oh, look.

Ma's got a new fur.

Ain't I the one?

I want my present!

Oh, Honeybell!

You're a pest.

You take your present, run away,

and keep quiet. How's Homer?

He don't feel good.

Oh, that's too bad.

Here's something

for you, Ellie May.

And, ma, here's

something smelly.

Say, ma, Thelma introduced

me to the loveliest gentleman

a mr. Hawkins.

Tell you about it later.

Did you go

to the fair, ma?

Oh, boy, did i! Say, I've

Oh, ma,

It looks like Homer.

Aw, let him be.

Well, its eyes light up.

Oh, Ellie May, ain't you

pleased with your present?


I'm pleased, ma.

I'm going down to the

beach to get some clams.

Now, there you are, ma.

Here I buy her

the best pair of silk

stockings I can for the money,

and she don't even

look at 'em.

I'll look

at 'em after.

You're pretty

particular about

where your presents

come from.

I ain't said nothin'.

Good-bye, ma. Good-bye.

Silk stockings'

ain't for a girl

that acts

like a boy.

You should've bought her a baseball bat.

I don't want none.

You got 8 pounds there. All right.

Here she comes.

Are you going

to say it?

I'm not afraid of her.

I'll say it.

Go on, say it.

Afraid of a girl?
