Also see "Pearls before the Swine" :

 

--> http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/~haroldfs/popcult/zeebah.html 

a page meant to focus on the language used in the comic strip Pearls before Swine (the episodes involving the crocodiles and the zebra).

The crocodiles are depicted clearly as not being very smart, and the languEFLage they use seems to be to be a blend of AAVE (or stereotypical perceptions of AAVE [African American Vernacular English]) but also with some elements of baby talk [...] Also grammatical elements such as 'me' for 'I' and negation with 'no', e.g. "Me no want lecture", 'we is' for 'we are', 'you gets' (for 'you get'), 'bootifuls couch', etc. [...].
