Cantonese translation

This was in today's Jump Start.

Could I get a translation and a Romanization of the Chinese text please?

Several years ago this particular cartoonist, Robb Armstrong, used Romanized Cantonese, which I later found he lifted from Teach Yourself Cantonese. So I'm curious as to where he got this text from and whether or not it has anything to do with the dialog in English.
