Their day starts off with constant fear of their own or others lives. Breakfast mostly consists of a barren piece of bread and watered down tasteless coffee that comes with an opportunity for the Kapo to harass you, beat you or even kill you if you drop food or try to take extra.

The humor arises because of the situation and because of the boy’s drunken observations of life. While drunk, the little boy seems to overreact to the situations, a problem that results from intoxication, and his overanalyzed perception of the occurrences are what is funny. It is funny when the boy begins to sing and sings even louder because he believes his father missed the point of his singing, and the fact that the boy is doing everything the drunken father would have done is humorous too.
They are confused at first, but then relax when he explains himself: “You little folks won’t tell on me now, will you? It’d ruin my reputation if you did.” “You mean all you drink in that sack’s Coca-Cola?” (Lee 200). With this short conversation, the children learn that the persona that Dolphus Raymond has, is just a mask he wears so that people will accept him. He believes that an excuse of being a drunk is a better option then being judged for being friendly with the blacks. Anyone would ignore Mr. Raymond and just keep walking, but the children reach out to him and take the time to rip away his mask and really get to know him for
Consequently, he bitterly guards his enforced privacy, saying to Lennie, “This here’s my room…I ain’t wanted in the bunkhouse, and you ain’t wanted in my room.” He is regretting the way that he taunted Lennie, “A guy needs somebody – to be near him” and “a guy gets too lonely” and “A guy sets alone out here at night.” It is implied that Crooks is thrilled when Lennie and Candy come into his room and are his companions for a night. Due the ways Crooks is constantly treated with rudeness and arrogance, Crooks turns the table and torments innocent Lennie which can make the

I didn’t realize it until I saw the movie version of the play how big of an idiot he is. His character was meant to seem as if anyone could be a night watchman. The title in itself is ironic because Dogberry is just a drunken man who sleeps on his job. Nothing he says makes sense and he doesn’t even do his job correctly.
