    Re: He can take you, too!

    If we say that someone can "take" someone else in a fight, it means that they can beat them. In the cartoon above, Wilberforce is saying that Elmo Stitch would win a fight with the man in the red jumper (Wilberforce's father?)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: He can take you, too!

    What does "get me" mean in the dialogue above? Something like "call me"?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Yes. "Get me" means to "get him involved".

    Instead of posting the cartoon, could you post a link to the webpage in future to avoid any copyright issues. Thanks.
