Adam bought Henry some crayons so that he can begin becoming the next great master...Leonardo Who? However, before Henry feels comfortable using the crayons to draw, he needs to deduct their chemical structure by taste, hence eating crayons. The kid had orange all over his chin yesterday- I may end up using these crayon bits to make candles or something.
However, it led me to wonder- will Henry be the kid eating paste in class? Is he a Billy Madison? OR is his genius so complex and intricate that this was merely a piece of performance art meant to subvert expectations and make us question everything? If so, kudos, Henry.
