Monster #274 — No reason

no reason

For the most part my son is an enthusiastic and accepting fan of my doodles (and I’m probably warping his view of the world big time), but sometimes he asks me why questions.

Why is he just saying “sausage”?

Why is he happy he’s fired?

Why is he running away?

Why is the naked mole rat Swedish?

Why are they all confused?

I don’t ever have any answers. Things just come out of my head this way and I draw them. I guess I’m just preparing him for the nonsense of the real world and the many, many questions he’ll ask that have no answer.

Why is European chocolate so much better than American chocolate?

Why do people throw trash out their windows on the highway?

Why don’t people realize they’re being manipulated by media and giant corporations and religion to spend money on things they don’t need?

Why do people watch FOX news?

    Oh, thanks a lot for stirring up all the questions in my head that it’s taken years for me to repress!

    (Do *you* know what the square root of ennui is? Or how many bacteria it takes to make a single exclamation point?? Or exactly what that oddly crunchy thing was in the chocolate shake I had on May 22, 1989??? IS IT STILL IN ME????)

    I feel *much* better now that I’ve found and used my brown paper hyperventilation bag.

    (Have you thought about making Voz-brand designer hyperventilation bags?)

  3. Voz says:

    I’m going to get right on that! I promise!

    What color glitter do you want on yours?

  4. DJ says:

    Do you have any paisley glitter? That would be awesome! :-)

    i can answer the “fox” question. i watch it when they show “family guy” and “simpsons”. and “american idol”… not anymore though, as we never set up our tv cable since we moved. so i’ve been pretty clean :^)

    (and oh yeah.. about the fairies on the window… i didn’t! no, i didn’t sneak any in!… dam’… i should’ve)
