Well, at least he’s being honest about not wanting to behave. Although surprised there isn’t the usual comment in here about all of that being the result of his hypergenius being too much for our mere mortal world to contain. (And then complain that it’s just a comic strip, and people shouldn’t take it so seriously)
No, I think they’re all 8 – although seemingly most of the kids (Caulfield especially) are inhabited by the spirits of old curmudgeonly physicists, philosophers, and theologians.
Depends on who you ask, Stairstep. There are those who think it’s because he’s a mean spirited little brat. Then there are those who’ll apply their own history to him, and claim that his behaviour is down to him being SUCH a misunderstood genius, that his innocent little (but high functioning) mind can only deal with it by acting out, and therefore it’s the fault of society in general to adapt to accommodate him.
I apply Occam’s Razor to it, and go with the former.
Aww, for a second – just for a second – I thought we’d be seeing the return of the mighty PICKLES.
Yeah, today’s strip is relatively innocuous. For once.
Hmm… is he referring to linens? The mess in Baldo’s room? Or… magazines?
Wait a sec… in years past Paste has competed despite working there?
And yet, ironically, that’s how they choose to portray Baldo half the time.
ESPECIALLY nuns. Particularly if you were an unwed mother in Ireland during the last century.
Cathy is gone?? Now THERE’S a movement I can get behind!
