I keep thinking this is some Lucy-and-Linus homage, but I can’t figure out how

    Is…is the little girl drawing a penis?

    Restaurants that cater to families typically offer materials or games to keep the little hellions occupied until the meal arrives, and crayons and paper are a popular option. Here it appears that one of the crayons made its way into the food. Luckily, most crayons are composed of non-toxic wax, meaning they are edible, although clearly not delectable.

    P.S. @ Kamino Neko (2) - Whatever it is, she doesn’t look too happy about it. Or maybe the kids ate their crayons, too.

    Does anyone ever look happy in this strip? don’t all his characters exhibit some version of that same expression?

    @ Mike (4) - Maybe they live in Westview, too?

    The kids are grimly working on animation cels for the Simpsons, until they work off their parents’ debts.

    I sometimes wonder whether pediatricians shouldn’t have crayons available so kids can draw on the paper used to cover the examining tables.

    I’m guessing that the restaurant staff kept the crayons in the cups and then when the family came in the staff just dumped the crayons on the table and filled the glasses with whatever beverage.

    One time, if I recall it correctly, Linus asked Lucy for some hot chocolate. When she asked how it came out, he said it tasted like hot water with a brown crayon dipped in it. That’s probably what one of the diners told the waitress.

    @Daniel J. Drazen (7) At my doctor’s office most of our waiting happens before my daughter gets measured, so there wouldn’t be much use in letting her colour for the short amount of time that’s left. Letting her draw before then might make it difficult for the nurse to see which marks were the head & foot ones for measuring her height.

    I took it the little girl picked up a French fry thinking it was a crayon, and the man at the other table got a crayon in his French fries.

    @ Bob (11) - I like that idea, and the color of the crayon above the girl’s drawing makes it an eminently plausible explanation.
