This First Grader’s Brutally Hilarious Riddle Answer Is So 2018 (In an Existential Crisis Sort of Way)

By Robin Zlotnick

Thanks, kid. Your teacher tried to get you thinking and add some lighthearted entertainment to the school day, and you paid him back with a stark reflection on humanity, religion, and all this other crap we didn't want to think about yet this year. We are mere days into 2018. All we wanted to worry about was our green smoothies and that year-long gym membership we just foolishly splurged on.
