Gib - Pop
First moments of life can be confusing, but at least nobody gets smacked on the buttocks.

Squal said: I don't get Panel 10's lords sir lord sir.
John1 said "Sirs don't say "sir", sir."
John2 corrected John1 with "Lords, not sir.", so John1 should have said 'Lords don't say "sir", sir!'
John1 tried to correct the above sentence without repeating it so he said: "Lords, sir lord, sir." Lords - as in correction, sir lord as the title and the last sir as addition to every sentence since the warlord popped.
I read it as John 2 correcting John 1 on "Sirs don't say 'sir'" in that warlords do say sir sometimes, but only when they're talking to their own overlord or superiors; so John 1 agrees and corrects himself "Lords, [you "sir"] lord, sir!" so that Gibbert doesn't get himself in trouble for failing to show proper respect to his superiors. I think your interpretation makes more sense, thinking on how warlords usually just call their overlord "lord" and the use of the singular "lord" at the end of that panel; but I think that first impression would also have made an entertaining direction to go in
