It’s a Joke, But I’m Not Foolin’

April Fool's Cartoon About Freedom to Innovate

This cartoon takes its inspiration from a conversation—a real gut-buster!—that I had with my kids. April would have foolishness enough, given that dread date smack in its middle, without April Fool’s Day. You can thus take this joke seriously.

    Dare we ask about the gist of the conversation?

  • Tom W. Bell

    I and my two kids were in a giggly mood after a fun drive home from school when we encountered an interesting phenomenon at our front door: Our photocell-equipped porch light was flickering on and off, apparently uncertain whether the shade falling on it qualified as day or night. My daughter wanted to explore the effect by covering the photocell with her hand, but couldn't quite reach it. She cocked her head to one side for a moment, and then reached up with the painting canvas she happened to be holding. I made a quip comparing her to a monkey solving a puzzle–”Stick? Banana? I can do this!”–much to our mutual amusement. But, granted, we are easily amused in our household.
