Have you ever bluffed your way through an answer to a child's question?

There's a great "For Better or Worse" cartoon, where the child gets in a conversation with her father about the color of the autumn leaves.

The father (a dentist I think, can't remember) explains how the weather changes and the leaves stop working and he takes the next 5 Panels (Sunday Cartoon) to explain all the biochemical events that cause the leaves to change, it is quite informative and in the storytelling you can tell the father is very pleased with himself for having such great knowledge to inform his child.

Then the last panel shows the little girl look up at her father and say...

"Grandpa said that God paints each one by hand."

God I miss that cartoon... great job, thanks for the flashback good luck

Thanks Drivenslush - glad you enjoyed it. Simple answers are best - kids can spot the gaps in your knowledge if you try too hard to impress!

just an opinion...i think this would pop more if you saturate the owls a little bit

author says:

Have made saturation improvement - thanks for the suggestion RickLaMesa.
