Dixie Turpin looks at the law schtick and purses a lip as he scrunched up the paper and swallowed it whole no homo. "Man, these laws are so shite. Lemmie make yahz betta laws that get de pengtingz and krepes where they belong and **** homeboy, fam-alam g's innit trust me ally kardesh." He would then proceed to jump into the sewer to search for some paper. When he found it, he would commence drawing on it with his crayon set, sometimes eating one to see the flying cows again. After completing it, Dixie nails it to a wall in Sutica proudly!

It reads;

 

Laws of da Sutican Hood

1: gib no loot to blue bandane peepulz

2: no rasism

3: locking your hausis.

4: No magic

5: Don't act gangsta

6: Follow rule 5 especially if you dunnae the martial art of klikz

7: Driveby any mothafucka when ridin’ turtles

8: Gib less loot

9: *A drawing of a 22. Inch sword would be here, because Dixie ran out of ideas for laws!*
