Someone asked me about "kippie" and "school kept" in these Buster Keaton quotes
and I was baffled; I checked some sources and then even suspected a
mis-transcription. What's going on?

"And I go 'round all the time dolled up in kippie clothes-wear everything but
a corset ..."

"It got so that I didn't care if school kept or not."
