31 Days of Calvin and Hobbes: Day 24

It's interesting to see what foods kids are drawn to, especially in retrospect. As a child, I was a huge fan of things like Cocoa Pebbles, and would put ketchup on litchrally anything, whether it was spaghetti or pancakes. Nowadays, I enjoy things like brussels sprouts, broccoli and plums, whereas back then you couldn't have made me try those even by force-feeding them to me through a tube.

Thus, as a parent, I'm sure a last resort is to say you're eating something gross. Kids might be grossed out by rice soup, but if that rice is maggots instead? They're all for it.
