But the middle two are just figuring out humor. Toby loves Dilbert comic books and Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes, stuff like that, because Toby is 40. And he says stuff like, "This song is groovin." and uses figures of speech that, you know, Scott Adams or Jim Davis or Bill Watterson would say.
And Toby and Brynn make these jokes, these knock-knock jokes or whatever kind, and they're always pretty non-sensical, which makes perfect sense for their age. I struggle with doing a little comic critique, you know, some editing and restructuring to make their jokes actually funny. I'm pretty hands-off with them, creatively. I don't tell them what to draw or how to make a craft, I don't try to redirect their songs or stories, I don't tell them when they're actually making a lion roar when they are being a bear or that trees aren't purple, I just let them do their thing. But I find myself a little bothered by the not-being-funny thing.
It just should have had one squirrel, or the thought bubble should have said, "WE LOST OUR TAILS," which would have been more like a tragedy or a mystery than a comic, and also, that 2nd squirrel is definitely checking out the junk in the trunk on the 1st squirrel. Now, that's funny.
