I feel a little stupid, but I absolutely do not get this. Can someone explain?

zach is saying it looks like people grow older but it feels like they're still a kid operating an older body

it's not a new insight but at least he did it in 6 words

In the top panel, it looks like the person is growing older over time. In the lower panel, we discover that all of the three grown-up figures are in fact puppets being operated by a stick. The child is struggling to manage the oversized puppets from behind. So, despite the physical appearance of growing up, she is actually a "child at heart" and struggling to behave as maturely as she is expected to be.

Just wanted to explain in more detail, since some people might not immediately see that the adults in the lower panel are puppets.

is Zach saying he feels like a child? I don't feel like I did when I was 8. I feel like what I am.


Should I be proud of this? I seem to be far ahead of a lot of comedians.

Ahhh, that's a puppet on a stick. It looks as if the child was pushing their head up, but it wasn't clear to me the stick was attached to the head. I'd have gotten it if they were puppets on strings.

Yeah, at first glance I thought that the child was pulling the adults' hair or something like that.

You murdered your mother with whom you had a relationship that had creepy Oedipal undertones?

I'm sorry, I was just trying to use vague questions to seem insightful, like I learned in psychology training.
