Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for July 26, 1987
Calvin: That's it, you climb up and then help me up? Hobbes: Tigers are natural-born tree climbers. Of course, we usually have grappling hooks, ropes and utility belts. Calvin: Hey, here's a great tree for climbing! Let me get on your shoulders so I can reach the first branch, ok? Hobbes: Geez, how many bricks do you have in your pockets?! Calvin: Whoa! Hold steady, you weakling! I've almost got it! Move up, move up! Hobbes: Hurry and grab it before my spine telescopes. Calvin: Got it!...hey, don't let go! Hold me up! Hobbes: Forget it! You can support your own weight, bowling ball butt. Calvin: Mmph! Mmph! I can't get up! Give me a boost! Hey! What are you doing?! Don't take off my shoes! Are you nuts? Hey, stop! Aack! Oh no! Don't tickle! Pbth! Eek! Hee hee ha ha! Stop it! I can't hold on! Hobbes: Nice landing. I'm probably paralyzed. Calvin: All except your mouth, obviously. I'm not sorry at all. Give me back my shoes. Hobbes: No.
