One o' the smacks hed jist brought in a hogfish that day, an' it was the worst lookin' critter that ever growed in the sea.
But I've a notion that I knew the critter was right there long before you did, Rube.
Never see so much nonsense in one head 's that critter's got in his.
I took in a cat for company 'tother day, but the critter's run away.
Scarin' a pa'tridge to death with a dum dog, and then turnin' a handful o' shot loose on the critter, an' call it huntin'!
Need a tug to haul this critter into the channel, I swan you do!
So he went to git his gun to shoot the critter, an' found he hadn't got no powder.
I never seen that hide neither, unless maybe when the critter was using it.
I forked over a fourpence-ha'penny and got on tu the critter, tickled eenamost tu death tu git a chance tu sit down agin.
First I hear is them sour-face asking me who kills them critter.
