    Re: Get your own material

    It means "Make up your own insults. Don't just copy what other people say."
    'Material' is often used for the jokes a stand-up comedian uses. A good comedian never steals someone else's jokes. Here, the kid is saying "Don't steal other people's insults."

    Re: Get your own material

    If you're asking questions about cartoons that are online, could you post a link to the page rather than posting the cartoon here- just to be on the safe side with copyright. Many thanks.
