It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Lost in Translation

Arthur:    Wha’ these crackers cold?
Mary:     Cold? Are they cold, Arthur?
Arthur:    No, wha’ they cooolld?” (Enunciating carefully for the thick one.)
Mary:     I don’t think they are cold, just normal.
Arthur:    No, not cold, cold!! Wha’s the name of these?
Mary:     Oh. They’re called Saltines, my dear. Just normal crackers.
Arthur:    And what are they going to turn into?
