#478 – Bedtime

I remember being surprised the first couple winters when my son would wake up cold in the middle of the night he would have to call one of us in to put the blanket back on him. The geometry of turning this crumpled mess back into a flat rectangle was beyond his 2 year old brain. Then suddenly one day he just magically knew how to do it and I had one less job at bedtime.

    I don’t get it. “Good night moon?” Is that an english expression?

    Also, is that a butt?

    Honestly, I don’t understand this one 🙁

      It’s a popular children’s book in America: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodnight_Moon

      This just shows how some things don’t easily translate between languages.

      Yes that would be a butt, and it refers to the English/American act of displaying ones’ butt which is call To Moon, or the act of Mooning.
      Which sort of makes the first frame a bit misspelled as it would have more appropriately been ‘Good night Sun’ to match the punch line, but that would have given the punch line away.

      But it’s implied, so that makes it so much better.

    Did he kiss the moon?

    Same for my son. He’s 3.5 years old now, but sometimes still asks me to put his blanket on even if he can do it himself.

    Is that what happened to the butt that the guy left his wife in his will?
