Okay, I know things have changed since I was this age, but… Is there an 11-year-old boy alive who would say this so casually in a conversation with a girl?

  1. my question would be, “WHAT babes dancing in feminine hygiene commercials?”

  2. The only commercial I can remember like this was a Tampax commercial which showed the Grambling band dancing to “Let It Whip,” but that dates back to 1999!

    As for the comic, the dialogue is stiffly written and awkwardly phrased so that it doesn’t come off as natural. But to answer the original question: yes, an 11-year-old boy might very well talk about feminine hygiene commercials to a girl in a casual conversation. Boys that age might think those commercials are hilarious and would mention them at the slightest pretext, regardless of context or appropriateness.

  3. Laterain, many such commercials have shown attractive young women dancing at a disco while wearing white, tight slacks.

    Actually, this is the closest I’ve seen the funnies get to emulating the way real eleven-year-old’s talk these days in a long time. Admittedly, he had to write AROUND what he was saying, and a kid that age would probably blurt it out with as many crudities as possible jammed into one sentence…..
