Never eat anything bigger than your head

My son Chris bought himself lunch today, from the 7-Eleven around the corner from his school. He bought a promotional bundle composed of an insulated mug (with a Slurpee coupon inside), a hot dog and a chocolate bar. He sold the chocolate bar to a friend. My question is this: which is bigger - Chris' head, or the 52 oz. mug? Nine hours later he's still trying to finish it! Click on the photo to see a larger version.

"Never eat anything bigger than your head" is the title of an old Kliban cartoon, with "right" and "wrong" panels. For "wrong", see above... Kliban was Gary Larsen's subversive Seventies predecessor, not just the creator of the idiosyncratic cat cartoons some of you may know. His work often appeared in The New Yorker or Playboy. See some good samples here and here.

Listening to: Pump Up The Volume by M|A|R|R|S from Pump Up The Volume. Too many Rs! :-)
