We get math kids

And one more thing:  surely the lexical ambiguity in “We get math kids”™ is intentional?  Of course it colloquially means “We understand.”  But also “We acquire.”  What do they do with the math kids, once they’ve got them?  To me it comes off as slightly menacing.  That part presumably not intentional.  “It’s a cookbook!”

    ‘Twere better to parse it, “We get math, Kids.”

    Maybe they don’t get grammar, Kids.
