I've discovered it . . .

Thanks to the mental exercise demanded in solving Pamela's child-rearing problems, I've developed the universal answer to overly curious children (sniveling or not). In a perverted sense of desire to serve my fellow man, feel free to use this answer without any fear of copyright infringement"

"I can't be serious, because Sirius is an immense, glowing, extraordinarily hot ball of gas and debris, much like Roseanne Barr during menopause."

Well now that you've solved my child rearing problems, I'll take the next 12 years off.

Glad to know that the Paper's safe after all x

At the moment I don't need to get more clever than replying to every question with "why?" - a good trick from the 3 year old.

But one day you'll thank me for this - it's so much more elegant than "beat it, kid"
