#1216: Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones

Child: Did you hear what he said about me!?

Parent: Well, remember: sticks and stones may break my bones, but words–

Child: Can make someone else feel happy or sad, which is literally the only thing that matters in this stupid world?


Child: Right?

Parent: The world isn’t that bad.

Child: Explain the line about sticks and stones?

Parent: … OK, maybe it’s kind of horrific.
