    It’s not the shoe ads (Keds, kids, Keds!). It’s the breakfast cereal.

    $5 wouldn’t have bought a trendy pair of sneakers anyway.

    And the workers in the athletic shoe factories aren’t paid enough to become winners!

    Take up quantum theory, kid. In some other universe, your poster DID win the contest.

    Which only goes to show that taking life advice from a guy who makes a living teaching guys how to knock down other guys may not be all that wise.

    Typical spoiled kid. “Make them take the prize away from Susie and give it to ME!” Makes for a good strip though, and I still love Calvin :D

    Watterson was and still is ahead of his time. In this day of social promotion and stroking kids’ self-esteem, panel 2 would be perfectly reasonable.Calvin would complain to the school counselor, who would agree and force the teacher to appease him.

    Notice how Dad is down on Calvin’s level talking to him in the fourth panel. This is a great thing for parents to do when communicating with their children, rather than “talking down to them.”

    Of course, it may have been necessary for Bill Watterson to draw Dad this way today, because he had to fit a lot of dialogue above both of their heads in a single panel.

    I must have missed those ads, the only thing I’ve ever seen the tea-partiers say is “stop your whining, and get out there and reach your potential”.
