    Santa operates like the government and they keep telling us everything is coming up roses so I wouldn’t worry if I were you, Calvin.

    Don’t worry Calvin, you will become the President so you can bail him out.

    Here’s my two cents about yesterday’s discussion of how awful Calvin’s parents are.

    Yeesh! Where were you all when Calvin’s mother used Calvin’s imagination to get him to eat one of her “yucky” dinners? She said those white things (rice) were really maggots.

    They play with Calvin, read him stories, even though he only wants to read the same one every day. They wash Hobbes, and helped Calvin find Hobbes when he got lost. Not to mention mom had to go and catch Calvin when he was pretending to be a petrodactyl and leapt off the roof. They play along with some of Calvin’s games, like the “Dad” poll. Not to mention the time that gravity didn’t work on Calvin. His dad wanted him to continue the story.

    There are lots more examples, but this is getting kind of long. The only time I can remember Calvin getting spanked is when he hosed his mother down as she was walking out the door to go somewhere important. He gets sent to his room most of the time.

    The parents are very far from being the kind that CPS should be called on, and people who whine about the parents are missing the entire point of the strip, and the funny part too. You have to remember that this strip is seen through the eyes of Calvin, and Calvin alone. He is SIX. He lives in the moment of Right Now, and yes, the parents do get tired of dealing with him 24/7 but anyone would. Calvin can be a very destructive kid. Parents are allowed to yell and vent too!

    The chuckles come from when people go…oh yeah, I remember when my kid did/when I did something like that! And yes, our parents were the worst parents in the world when they said we couldn’t do X when we were little. Don’t you remember?

    look at Calvin…how nicely he cares about Santa and his employees..and of course and not to mention his altruistic thoughts about the children who won’t get presents anymore..

    ps: children = Calvin :D

    Well, think Calvin! Santa bought into Obama’s stimulus package and now the government [which is we the taxpayers] owns Santa and his whole operation. The next we hear the SEIU will unionize the elves and have a Cadillac health care plan that is exempt from taxation until 2018. Don’t expect Santa’s toys to be free next Christmas.
