^^Did you not like the movie?(
Why did Skippy say "Spew" anyway? Were you trying to start a new slang word?
Primary reason: It's a funny word..."Spew" suggests disgust to the point of wanting to barf. It makes sense for a kid (like Skippy) to say it and like saying it. The word is just a tiny bit edgy, but crosses no lines. Kids like to see how far they can go with what they can say. Also, considering that Slappy pushed the envelope a lot, Skippy had many opportunities to express his disgust by saying "Spew." That's why Skippy said "Spew."
