Today’s comic is Hi & Lois featuring Trixie.
“I wonder if I gain weight when I suck my thumb. My pinkie probably has fewer calories.”
– Trixie’s thoughts on sucking her thumb
What is going on?
Trixie thinks that sucking her thumb is like sucking a lollipop (candy).
This comic is funny because she does not realize sucking your thumb is not like sucking (eating) food so it does not matter what size your finger is. She will not gain any weight from sucking her thumb (the biggest finger) or her pinkie (the smallest finger).
