it was amazing

this is a really funny passage from this book:

At the moment Pex and Chips were bonding under the full moon while Mulch dug a dwarf size pit in the dry clay behind an abandoned cement factory.
"You wanna guess why they call me Pex?" asked Pex, flexing his chest muscles as a hint.

Chips opened a packet of potato chips he was forever crunching.

"I don't know is it, like, short for something?"

"Like what?"

"I don't know." said Chips, he used that phrase a lot. "Francis?"

This sounded dumb, even to Pex "Francis! how could Pex be short for Francis?"

Chips shrugged."Hey! I had an uncle robert and everyone called him Bobby! That don't make no sense either."

Pex rolled his eyes."Its Pec-tor-als, Moron. Pex is short for Pectorals, on account on me having big chest muscles."


Up on the surface, Chips was eager to continue the game.

"Guess why they call me chips?" he said, hiding the bag of chips behind his back.

Pex kneaded his forehead. He knew this one. "Don't tell me. I can work it out."

"It's because he eats chips, you idiot. Chips eats chips."
