or: HOWTO make your very own little boy!

The standard ingredients:

 Snips (alt. Snakes)

From the Snakes reference, I think this would represent the phallus. Snips might either be a circumcision or hair cutting reference (since the archetypal little boy has properly masculine short hair).

 Snails

Snails represent the unabashed nature of little boys concerning mud, slime, snot, other body excretions, and general dirtiness.

 Puppy Dog Tails

What do puppy dog tails invariably do? Wag! This trait represents endless energy and happiness.

So Snips + Snails + Tails = Standard Little Boy


Ah, but what happens when we start using substitutes? Instead of the Standard Little Boy, you could make:

Silicate + Snails + Caffeine = Coder

Snips + Snails + Black Lipstick = Goth

Wool + Snips + Tails = Prep

Bible + Snips + Tails = Hardcore Christian

Snakes + Whip + Tails = BDSM Porn Star

Manga + Snails + Tails = Otaku

d20 + Snails + Tails = RPGamer

With a diabolical flush, Mojo Jojo created the Rowdy Ruff Boys by mixing the basic ingredients and the water in his jail cell toilet.
Nursery Rhyme
What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Snips and Snails,
And Puppy Dog Tails.
That's what little boys are made of.
Alternatively, BlueDragon says that "It was always slugs and snails in my day"

Vuo has sent me the Finnish version of the same rhyme, in which you have snails and frogs replacing snips and snails.

Mistä on pienet pojat tehty?
Etanoista ja sammakoista,
koiranhännäntupsukoista.
Niistä on pienet pojat tehty
