"Why does Chongo wear a fedora and talk funny?"
Why, Amos? Easy. Cos Humphrey Bogart did, that's why. And so did Philip Marlowe. Fedoras look good. 40's tough guy lingo sounds good.
Now I got a question for you. Why does Amos use oddball French words and phrases like "jejeune" and "mon petit" when he ain't French? Hmmm? Why?
Is he tryin' to impress the ladies or somethin'? Is he pretendin' to be a modern day Cyrano de Bergerac? Is he drinkin' too much Creme de Menthe? Inquirin' minds want to know.
