Jacob: Were you just smoking and chewing tobacco at the same time?
Ricky: What are you, my mom?
Jacob: Do I look like I blow truckers for food stamps?”Why, Mr Riggs, why? I can’t for the life of me figure out why this line ended up in a kids book. Yes, I understand that Jacob is troubled, and that by saying something so shocking to Ricky, he loses his only friend. But surely the author could’ve come up with an equally friendship-ruining scene that didn’t include the phrase “blow truckers”?
