    Doest thou really neededth a cop show, Calvin, when thou can — oh forget it, she’s not turning the channel!

    Uh, getting back to the topic (which is, you know, TODAY’S strip, NOT the members of the forum or their statistics, which are not only irrelevant, but boring as hell to read), I have to congratulate Bill Watterson on getting 16th-Century English right, including the correct use of “thou” and its associated forms. And shut up, Calvin — some of us LIKE the classics!

    Shows like CSI: Miami are extremely cheesy

    @margueritem: It was easier than trying to come up with a good one-liner about Shakespeare.

    I have to agree.

    To some this isn’t a place to comment on the humor of the strip, but to highlight things which might lead to some form of praise, but more likely some form of flattery. It does get a little boring when one poster attempts to control the entire group. But unfortunately some of the lemmings follow along.
    This isn’t a personal attack, so please don’t start interpreting it as such. This is simply one person’s opinion, who prefers the humor of the strip, instead of diverting it to other nonsensical issues.

    Speaking of non-sensical old english …

    `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.
