In my imagination, Buddy is a male who greatly admires his mother and follows her conventional advices to an unacceptable extent; he accepts his mother’s conservative ideas of gender roles and how the domestic life should be organised.

They also trigger my Sunday school memory of Jesus feeding five thousand people with a meal that was meant to be a small boy’s lunch. Feeding a multitude after breaking only five small loaves and two small fish, packed in a preschool lunch box, and managing to have twelve baskets of leftovers.
