Mar 3rd – Family Circus: Pick Up Your Toys

Hello everyone!

Today’s comic is Family Circus.

Comic Breakdown

“Ok, I picked up my toys.  Now what?” – Jeffy asking what to do next

What is going on?

Someone (probably his mom or dad) has told Jeffy to pick up his toys. 

But he does not know what to do next.  The phrase “pick up your toys” is a figure of speech that means “clean up” or “tidy up”

This comic is funny because the child, Jeffy, has taken the instructions too literally to understand what to do after he picks up the toys.  He should put them away neatly.

In conclusion, when someone tells a child to “pick up their toys” it means they need to clean up.

Today’s images are from here, here, here, and here.
