    For most of those questions, there actually are rational answers. Unfortunately, Shannon is all too often far from rational.

    Luann needs to tell Shannon to ask her Dad, Jonah, about that. If Shannon says he is not around then she should say that Bwad, Toni and Smiley have all those answers and she should ask them at the dinner table. Toni would probably like this as it sure beats conversation around Bwad and TJ making innuendos around the baby carrots and baby back rib menu….. I would bet that TJ would come up with a nifty answer that would actually be a “whole lot of nothing” but satisfy the kid.

Unless you mean all the Mars candy bars he/she wants.. 6.) Baby rattlesnakes don’t have rattles until they shed their skin for the first time. 7.) Sure, but where’s your manners young lady? 8.) It evaporates. 9.) Sure..no one will know it’s a made-up swear word. 10.) Bacteria in the gut cause it to stink. 11.) In one ear, out the other. 12.) Pretty much the same thing.

    Okay, I just have to rise to the challenge! Panel 1:

    (First thing I’d say to Shannon, though, is, “Whoa—slow down so I can write all of these down and answer them one by one!”)

    1. “Can God kill a ghost”? If you take the theological position that some do that “eternal flames” was supposed to be translated “terminal flames,” so that rather than undergoing infinite torment you cease to exist, then yes, God can kill a ghost.

    2. “Is Heaven in our time zone?” Heaven is in all time zones simultaneously. It is beyond time. And if you think that’s impossible, just consider how you and a friend in Australia can chat on the Internet, with one of you enjoying a spring morning while the other is in an autumn night, but for both of you it’s the same “now”.

    3. “When is Santa’s birthday?” Let’s look it up. Got it—St. Nicholas was born on March 15. Never be afraid to answer a child’s question with “Let’s look it up.”

    4. “Where do clowns come from?” From trailers behind the circus tent, where ordinary people put on clown make-up and costumes. Of course, first they learn how to be clowns in clown-school.

    Compulsively answering panel 2:

    1. “Could a rich person buy Mars?” Not yet, because nobody owns Mars, so nobody can sell it.

    2. “Why don’t baby rattlesnakes have rattles?” They do have a little button on the tips of their tails, but it can’t rattle yet because there’s no other segment to rattle against yet. They add a new segment every time they grow and shed their skin. I wasn’t quite sure about this, though, so I looked it up to confirm it.

    3. “If I burp into an envelope, can I send it to my Dad?” Nope, it won’t work. The burp will leak out of the envelope before you could even close it, and fall apart on the air. It’s not dense enough to last very long.

    DANG! I hit the two-comments per minute limit! So next time I’m combining 3 and 4 together—how do you like THAT, censorbot?

    Ridiculously persisting to answer Panel 3:

    1. “When fog dries, does it turn into dust?” Fog is made of water vapor, so “drying” just means that the water vapor spreads out so much you can’t see it as fog anymore. Then it drifts up into the sky and collects back together again, but this time as a cloud. That’s right, fog is just a cloud sitting on the ground. However, there can be tiny particles suspended in that water vapor, that could be left behind as a kind of dust, but so little you can’t even see it.

    2. “Is it okay to say a swear word that you invented?” Yes. For instance saying “DANG!” is a made-up swear word that isn’t really a swearword. That is called a “euphemism”.

    3. “Why does poop stink?” Because there’s a whole lot of germs in it breaking it down and making it rot so that it can turn into compost, and you’re smelling their collective breath. It smells bad to you—stinks—because anybody to whom it smelled good died out a long time ago and didn’t have children. They got careless about whether or not their food touched poop and got sick.

    4. “When a sound goes in your ear, does it stay there?” No, because sound is not an object that you can hold and put places. It’s a movement of air, and that air movement whooshes into your ear and moves a tiny flap of skin inside your ear called the ear drum. Your ear drum quivers just like a drum when hit by the air movement, and translates that quiver into a message to your brain that you sense as a noise.

    5. “Is forever-after longer than infinity?” No, they’re the same thing. When two different words mean the same thing, they’re called “synonyms”.

    Mulishly continuing into Panel 4:

    “When kids ask questions you can’t answer, what do you say?” Try “Let’s look that up.” Sometimes you have to answer, “Let’s look that up later,” or “Ask when you’re older.” But always let

    5 Why don’t baby rattlesnakes have rattles?

    They do. They are just too tiny for you to hear.

    6. If I burp into an envelope can I send it to my dad?

    You have a father?! or

    Sure, why not.

    7. When fog dries out does it turn into dust?

    No, it turns into humidity.

    8. Is it OK to say a swear word that I invented?

    If no else knows it is a swear word then it doesn’t count.

    9. Why does poop stink?

    Poop is all the stuff your body can’t digest, including all the stinky stuff.

    10. When a sound goes into your ear does it stay there?

    No, it jump right out. That why you can’t remember stuff

    11. Is Forever-after longer than infinity?

    God can kill a ghost, but will not do so because Halloween is his favorite holiday too. Heaven is in whatever time zone it wants to be. Santa’s birthday is the same day as Saturnalia. Clowns come from Congress. Jeff Bezos will certainly try to buy Mars if it could make him another $50 billion somehow. Baby rattlesnakes do have rattles however they threw them on the floor so they can’t reach them anymore. If you burp in an envelope and send it to your dad, I will add my fart to it. Fog stays fog but it goes back to the fog machine. I have invented my own swear word too. The word is “Shannon”. Poop stinks because it goes by another word. That word is “Tara”. Yes, this is why you always hear voices in your head. “Forever after“ ends when a the subject of a fairy tale dies. “Infinity” is the same as a story arc for this comic.

    “What does my dad do? I mean, for REAL?”

    I’ll tackle this: No god, no ghosts. Clowns are costumes. No heaven. Santa’s birthday depends on who the Santa is. Maybe someday Mars will be up for sale. Baby rattle snakes need to mature to get rattles. Sure you can send the burp but it will be received silent. Yes it’ll turn to dust if the frog is out long enough. Yep, I invent them all the time, say away! Poop smells bad to humans to keep us from eating it and to generally stay away from it. If a sound is loud enough it can damage your ear and that damage could be seen as the sound still being there. Infinity is not time, that’s eternity.

    1. Yes, but also no, becauze God and religion make no sense.

    2. No, there’s no time there, so also no time zone.

    3. Santa values his privacy, so he hasn’t released that information. I’m sure he’d be happy to get a gift from you any time of the year, though.

    4. Let’s just say it isn’t in our time zone, either.

    5. I’m sure there’s someone who’d be willing to help them think they could, for the right price.

    6. Ask me again when you’re older.

    7. Yes, but I doubt it will travel well. Your dad might like it anyway, though.

    8. Fog is entirely made of water. Remove the water and there’s nothing left, not even dust.

    9. Yes. Say all of the swear words all of the time. Anyone who tells you not to is an ignorant aśśhole, and you should tell them so.

    10. It’s becauze of a chemical called bile. It helps to break down your food so you can get the nutrients out of it, but it’s brown and smells terrible. That’s why we dispoze of it so carefully.

    11. No. Sound is energy. It gets converted to a different type of energy when it hits your eardrum, which is what allows you to hear it, but it also destroys the sound.

    12. No, it’s just more narrowly defined. Forever-after only describes time, whereas infinity can also describe space, numbers and stupidity, among other things. But they are otherwize synonymous, which is a fancy way of saying they mean the same thing.

    Today‘s strip is my proof positive that Jonah does not exist.

    Shannon has not been shown with her dad since at least 2017, when I started (resumed ?) following this strip (having discovered comic strips on line).

    It‘s so bad that, when I first saw TJ, I thought he was Jonah. Why? Because TJ was the only male, not Brad, to be shown with Shannon, and we were front-loaded that Brad was not her father.

    I know I was called out for that mistake. (Honest, I‘m sorry! It was a mistake! An honest mistake!)

    My point is: If G&K wanted to show that Shannon has a home life with her dad, G&K have had at least six years my time to show it.

    They have not.

    Let‘s face it: Jonah was never more than a plot device to gift Toni an instant child. (A child that, to the best of our knowledge, Toni does not want to give birth to?)

    And for those Germans out there, gift has another meaning, and I know that there are those out there who consider Shannon a gift in the German sense of the word!

    Good questions, all. There are more, of course, like “Do turtles get homesick?” (the answer seems to be yes, they’re highly territorial and are remarkably good at finding their way home when taken away).

    1. Well, He hasn’t had to since the Ghostbusters were started in the summer of ‘84. Things got quiet in the netherworld. 2. Yes. 3. Day after Thanksgiving. 4. A vat of chemicals in Gotham City. Sometimes sewers. 5. Well, it is on Jeff Bezo’s Amazon wishlist. 6. Mama Rattlesnake forgot to put them on her Amazon wishlist. 7. Knock yourself out. It’s still probably more then he gave your aunt and uncle on their last anniversary. 8. Nope, usually just puddles of water. Speaking of which, Puddles needs a walk. 9. According to an episode of the cartoon Recess, yes. 10. Depends on what you ate. 11. No. 12. No.

    Well, I can give this a shot. Panel by panel.

    Yes. Yes. I don’t know. They’re people.No. They grow later. Maybe.No. It depends. Bacteria. It doesn’t go in. No.There’s no such thing.

    Kids wonder about things and it’s good to encourage that. Also, “I don’t know” is a perfectly acceptable answer. They need to know that an individual adult can’t have all of the answers. It’s also fine to say “No more questions for now” or even look up things with them online.

    That last question is pretty advanced for a grade school kid. There are at least two levels of infinity. For example, the number of integers is countably infinite, meaning we can at least begin to count them. The number of irrational numbers in uncountably infinite, meaning that there are so many that we can’t even begin to count them.

    The concept has practical applications. It can be proven that the number of possible computer programs is countably infinite, and it can be proven that the number of problems is uncountably infinite. Therefore, there are problems that cannot be solved by any computer program.

    A fool can ask more questions than ten wise persons can answer.

    The problem isn’t so much that you Can’t answer those questions.

    It’s that some of them should not BE Answered.

    Yes Shannon, God can kill anyone and anything he pleases, including little girls who ask to many questions. He can even kill people, bring them back to life and kill them again just for laughs. Rattles on baby rattlesnakes are just like boobs on girls. See, I have them and you will too the first time you shed your skin.

    Some are silly, some are profound. But kid’s questions are always interesting.

    Robert A. Heinlein’s “Stranger in a Strange Land” goes into lot of detail on who legally owns Mars.

    I think I’d say, “Get out of here, Brat!”

    But I guess that would not be “acceptable in polite company.”

    You say, “Let’s talk about it, and see what we can figure out.” Taking the first question, ask what killing means and what it would do to a ghost. You might actually have a decent conversation, but more importantly, You’ll be asking questions and she won’t. And yet she’ll be happy with the situation.

    My favorite (which does have an answer, but it stumps adults at first): Why does a mirror reverse only left and right, but not up and down?
