If you haven’t read the web comic Daisy Owl, it’s worth a look—it’s a sweet, tightly written, bracingly funny series following the adventures of a bear, an owl, and the owl’s two presumably adopted human children.

A recent strip features the presentation of a dinosaur birthday cake with the following introduction: “A dinosaur cake could be anything. Even a plain, circular, vanilla cake. You see, all biological matter is recycled. A percentage of the atoms in everything organic were dinosaurs at one point, including this cake, and even ourselves. So, in the truest sense, this is a dinosaur cake.”

Read the strip for the twist, of course.
