    hah- clever. Shows the writers actually know about what they’re discussing, rather than just poking fun at it. The joke shouldn’t really stump anyone, though, as they DO explain it in the last panel.

    Thank the heavens my store finally stopped accepting checks. The old ladies cried numerous tears, but they were not only taking FOREVER (though mostly because they were old), but sometimes the checks bounced and so stores lost money. It was just not worth doing, especially for the tiny, tiny amount of people who still did it. Most younger people don’t even know HOW to pay with check. When people ask WHY we don’t accept checks, I just say “because it’s 2016”.

    Between that and getting rid of pennies, my store has probably cut in half the amount of time women over 60 take at the tills. But you still have to teach them step-by-step how to use a card reader.

    This is the only time Hobbes ever really makes mention of his past or his family life. Watterson was quite careful to show that few characters had a real life outside of their relationship to Calvin (his Mom mentions “friends” once; Uncle Max is a short-lived character; Susie’s parents are never seen), centering the strip. So I always found this one kind of fascinating as a kid- I mean, where was Hobbes born? What kind of life did he lead? Does he miss his family? Of course it’s not really meant to be asked or answered, but it’s a curious thing.

    One of the best ones ever- works on SO MANY LEVELS. First off, they put the tiger on top. Second, Calvin STILL screws up his order. Third, the tiger only looks real to CALVIN.

    “Byrne Stealing”: Older than you think.

    Yeah, I forgot all about that thing, too. CLASSIC kid stuff, though- there’s a ton of my “Big Gifts” that got forgotten (begged my parents for a Jurassic Park Command Compound and “grew out of” toys that year). My brother had a ton of R/C Cars that eventually collected dust, too.

    You know what’s really weird about this? Not a few weeks earlier, they were running the strips where Frank DID ask Brandy out, and they DID go out on a date.

    Now for pretty much the entire rest of the strip, they pretend that never happened, turning Frank into a lovelorn, shy boy unable to deal with his love for Brandy. The Frank we get here would never have been able to just walk up to Brandy and ask her out like that.

    The funny thing is… that date they went on was a disaster. They had no chemistry, effectively showing that it’d never work out. It feels like Cho just wanted to re-do the whole thing and change focus (his original University-squared strip featured Frank & Brandy hooking up almost immediately) so that it was a “Nice Guy Pines For Hot Girl” thing.

    It wasn’t until nearly the very end of the strip that Truman mentioned the early date and how “it was a disaster, so he never felt like he could ask her out again”. But even Brandy at the end was all “Why didn’t you ever ask me out? I would have said yes”. Except he DID. And SHE DID IN FACT SAY YES THAT TIME, TOO.

    TV Tropes calls that “Early Installment Weirdness”- basically Cho ignored what he’d already done and restarted.

    Still first arc is so weird given what’s been seen in the rest of the strip- here, Frank had no issues asking out Brandy, but was a boring, uninteresting date. Cho instead later writes Frank as a shy, mopey guy who just fawns over her from afar, and can’t bring himself to say anything. This first arc just makes it look like Frank isn’t a good match anyways.

    It’s based on her life, not a direct example of her life. The characters aren’t QUITE as rich as Johnston’s family got (note that John & Rod had the same job- Elly however, was a housewife, and not a successful cartoonist).

    It’s funny how Knute is a weird combination of “Stereotypical Whacky Kid” (punker hair, baggy clothes) and a giant dork. What’s with those pants?
