Ebonics II vs Ebonics I

Kroger was celebrating something the other day with a parking lot cookout.  As I walked by, I heard a customer say. “Where your prices is?”  He said this three times before being corrected by someone else, “You mean, where your prices ARE.”  Am I the only one who knows the correct grammar for this sentence is “Where your prices be at?”

Recently, a co-worker mentioned he was hungry.  I offered him a can of Slim-Fast, to which he replied that Slim-Fast was too “girlie.”  Ok, no offense taken.  To each his own.  Didn’t phase me a bit although in typing this, I noticed the same undertone of bitterness that you may have noticed.  Interesting.  Anyway, a conversation ensued over the need for Slim Fast to step-up it’s marketing plan for men.  So we came up with the following packaging changes for Slim-Fast.  I’m sure the check is in the mail.
