Want Better Solutions? Ask Better Questions.

It seems like every comedian with kids has a riff on the same bit: making fun of their kids for asking “why.”

You’ve probably seen some variation on it. The bit usually begins with the comedian recounting a scene (usually in a car) where a kid asks a benign, easy-to-answer question. The parent answers, but then the kid asks why. Then the parent gives a slightly less plausible answer, then the kid asks why again, and so on.
