Eight year old boys are hilarious.
Matty is a little bit atypical in that he has a lot of genuine empathy for suffering and he is unusually thankful for even the little things. But, deep down inside where the snips, snails, and puppydog tails are found lurks an archetypal eight year old boy that could be found anywhere in the world. Wanna know how to get one of those guys laughing uncontrollably? Talk about this and use the name of it in a sentence while talking very properly or in a hillbilly accent. If you don't get it, you probably never knew an eight year old boy or you never were one.
