Behold, the Lore of the Slums!

Post by A Lotta Moms on Fri Aug 15, 2014 10:00 pm

Slumlore.  What is it?  Since our glorious inception, we've managed to develop our own unique culture.  With that has come a growing collection of inside jokes, tropes and other such silliness that keeps coming up over and over again in chat and posting.  Some things are based on decent evidence and analysis of the series, while others are more along the lines of crazy speculation.  Here's a short list of some of the more common items:

Muffy: Has a curiously close friendship with Fern that seems to exist mostly off-camera.  There's good evidence for this in the Muffy/Fern thread:
http://theslumsofelwood.forumotion.com/t15-crazy-ideas-muffy-and-fern-are-in-love
Buster: Has a serious drug problem.  Is (or will be) bisexual or pansexual when he gets older.  Most likely a cross-dresser.  Has an improper relationship with Bitzi.  See respective topic for more details:
http://theslumsofelwood.forumotion.com/t43-bitzi-and-buster?highlight=bitzi
Francine: Is (or will be) a lesbian, or at least bisexual.  Pretty self-explanatory.  See her respective topic or more details:
http://theslumsofelwood.forumotion.com/t19-francine-frensky-lesbian
Jane: Has a drinking problem.  Fluctuates between silly and abusive when drunk.
David: Freeloader who only plays husband and father for a meal ticket.
Mr. Morris: Also has a drinking problem, only much more severe.  Currently living on the streets.
Mr. Ratburn: Has a fetish for pie...and Binky.
Molly: She isn't James's big sister.  She's his mother.  She's also at least in her late teens or early 20's, based on her unusually-developed figure and teenage personality.  James is led to believe that she's his sister so that he doesn't get emotionally traumatized and grow up to be like Ted Bundy or, even worse, Jack Nicholson.
Rattles: Is really in his mid-30s, and hangs around the playground because he doesn't know what else to do with himself.  Lives with his parents half of the time, until they kick him out and tell him to get a job...only to have him come back 6 months later no more gainfully employed than he was when he left.
Fern: Has a deep love for Kraft mac n' cheese.  In fact, it's pretty much all she eats...and in very large quantities.  She also suffers from diabetes, has poor hygiene and occasionally abducts people to stuff away in her closet, where they gradually starve to death and rot.  Is able to transform into a burlesque dancer on cue.
Doria: A real floozy.  Brings strange men home throughout the day to help pay the bills, if you know what I mean.
Mr. Walters: Usually "away on work."  In reality, he has another family in a different city who he spends half of his time with.
Maria: By contrast, Maria only goes for the richer, heartier Stouffer's mac n' cheese.  Preferably, with cut-up hot dogs mixed in.  Take it away from her, and she flies into a rage.  Comes from a strict, old fashioned household where her mother gives her an unmerciful beating every night for no reason other than "good measure," and forces her to bathe in Pine Sol while getting a hard scrubbing with a wire brush to wash off her daily sins.  She's also a nun in training.  Was molested by Bailey during one of Muffy's pool parties, from which she's never fully recovered.
Bailey: Dangerous sexual predator who was hunted down, shot, skinned and beheaded by the Elwood Anti-Depredation League sometime last year.  
Alex: Can transform into a T-Rex when he sees fit.
Cousin Mo: Sadist who runs a BDSM dungeon from which not everyone comes out alive.  Terrorizes younger kids to show them how much she loves them.
Luigi and Kerry: Are a couple, since they seem to have a history together.
Joe Fallon: Captain Spaulding.

Feel free to add on anything else that I seem to have missed!  Razz

Slink: Another cross-dresser, based on the fact that he looks almost exactly like his mother (who's probably just him in drag), and the fact that he's referred to as a girl in the Hebrew version of the show.

I like the one about Mr. Lundgren... do you mind if I adapt it into an issue of Elwood?

I meant Mr. Walters, although Lundgren isn't around very often either.
