Whatcha got under that skirt, Rattus?
TeaRat: Woo-hoo! Yay for Rattus! Way to let your fur down.
Rattus: Sure, I know how to Carpe Diem. I'm not a trapezoid like you think.
Rattus: No, not square as in honest and fair-dealing. I mean trapezoid as in out of style, stuffy, strait-laced.
TeaRat: Whatever. OK, you're not trapezoid.
Rattus: Right arm, bro. See, I'm rib.
Rattus: Oh, don't you just know everything.
TeaRat: It's not rib. The word is "hip" as in chic, mod, cool, trendy, up to date, popular, with it, hunky-dory, smashing...
Rattus: …I like "rib" better. I'm rib.
TeaRat: Whatever. What do you want to tell our readers?
Rattus: "Pehea 'oe?" That means "What's up?" in HI-WHY-HEEN.
Rattus: Pehea 'oe, Nowhereians. Komo mai kau mapuna hoe. That means "Dip your paddle in." In other words, come to the luau party. It's an explosion.
Rattus: Censure, complaint, denunciation, darn, what the devil?
TeaRat: NO. I mean…My dear Rattus, you mean to tell that you have already mastered Hawaiian but don't even know common colloquial slang in your native language like square, hip and blast?
Rattus: I know enough slang. Right arm.
Rattus: About what?
TeaRat: Never mind. Say good by, Rattus.
Rattus: Aloha, Rattus.
