I enjoy watching South Park on current events. In its tense twentieth season, Member Berries play a crucial role. While I’m afraid of not grasping the overarching concept entirely, I’d like this linguistic detail straightened out:
Is “’member” a common shorthand for “remember”? Is it in this particular instance?
If “member berries” were talking fruits that keep uttering nostalgic phrases, does “member” stand plainly for “remember”, or does it entail some broader indication? Does it simply drop a syllable colloquially, or is it part of some allusion?
