Again, for whatever reason, I get a kick out of stories involving hyper-intelligent children. Maybe it’s the “Calvin and Hobbes” influence or the fact that I’ve read too many Orson Scott Card books. Maybe it’s more than that, and it’s some residual annoyance with the adults that patronized me when I was a kid. Maybe it’s less than that, and it’s just an easy device for setting up jokes. Maybe it’s too late at night and I should really be asleep instead of trying to figure out how my brain works.
Whatever the reason, here’s a strip about an overly-smart kid and his trained puppy. Or puppied train, perhaps. Hope you enjoy it!
