This Is a Rude Conversation

Panel 1: Brutus and Wilberforce standing outside. Wilberforce: "You should see Mrs. Farr-she's gained a lot of weight lately!" Panel 2. Brutus: "That's because she's pregnant. She's eating for two now." Panel 3. Wilberforce: "How many are you eating for, Pop?"
I can't believe Wilberforce is nine-years-old and hasn't been talked to about discussing people's weight. Maybe you can write off this discussion as a "from the mouths of babes" thing but, again, at nine, Wilberforce should know how pregnancy works.
