31 Days of Calvin and Hobbes: Day 16

Many a Calvin and Hobbes strip finds Calvin asking his dad a number of questions. Ones I remember off the top of my head are Calvin asking why pictures used to be in black and white (and Calvin's dad responding that the world was in black and white back then) and where the sun goes when it sets (Calvin's dad says it lands near Flagstaff, AZ). 

Essentially, he's just pulling Calvin's leg, but as a six-year-old, Calvin doesn't know any better. I'm sure I'd do the same thing--I don't know the answer to Calvin's question, and while I know what his dad says is wrong, it's a humorous thing to picture. I also love that Calvin accepts the response, though his mom is a bit wiser to his dad's shenanigans.
