Knuckle sandwich forthcoming…
uh oh…time to make a dash.
Susie’s patience has come to an end. Finally Calvin will be slugged. Go ahaed Susie.
Poor Susie has a low tolerance level when it comes to ancient Roman legends … or to Calvin.
BTW - can someone tell me how it is possible to register as a trademark a Roman god that was invented more than 2000 years ago?
…and he didn’t even have to research it…well done, Calvin!
Calvin is a such a talented kid!!!
Susie, don’t be mad!
Annnnd, I guess/know Hobbes wrote it!!!!????
First panel: cent-percent
Second: 75% (messages–of which bouquets are one type)
And that was with his five-minutes leaning-on-locker research!
For cookiemonster: because the Romans didn’t trademark him, they left it open for a later plagiarist–you may have heard of the basmati and neem issues.
(on plagiarism, another Tom Lehrer reference: Lobachevski)

Sure cOOk13, just be the first to do it…. and then hope like heck he doesn’t come around to collect some royalties.
Susie needs some anger management classes.
Susie should have known better. She pressured him to go to the library. She should have known he wouldn’t come up with the standard answer.
Its the ad libbing that gets him introuble - Calvin needs to stay on script– maybe he should ask Barack to borrow his teleprompter.
“Exit, stage left.”
calvin got his info on mercury from spaceman spiff
definitley back to susie.
well, she said the MYTHology of mars. aren’t gods myths? A+ calvin well done!
Love his expressions in the 2nd and last panel!
jaja anda golpealo se lo merece :P
The Roman god Mercury could never wing it as good as Calvin just did.

Seriously! how many years have they been in the first grade together? Decades!
Exit stage right, even.
(My best Snagglepuss impersonation.)
Almost on-the-nail ninmas; only the planet about which Susie said Calvin would present mythology was Mercury not Mars.
I’m amazed he came up with anything close to right.
I would like to point out…it’s not the number of years Calvin and Susie have been in 1st Grade, but the amount of QUALITY time spent being 1st Graders.
Now the teacher’s gonna have to pry Susie off of Calvin while the rest of the class gets some great entertainment. Go Susie!
Doing your homework or not…
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaa… Oh relax, Susie! Don’t get mad at Calvin. Hey, Calvin, become as a mercury zooms jiffy! Before Susie gives you a shiner. ROFL! X-D
Yeah, for Calvin, that’s pretty good…
tabbylynn: Thank you. I was sick with an intestinal virus, and even looking at the computer for more than a little bit made my head hurt even worse. Doing much better now. :-)
i know what you mean about look at the computer when you have a headache. i am glad you are doing better. i missed you, you make things intresting and i love your witty comments.
tabbylynn: Thank you. I enjoy having your cheerful comments appear on the boards, too.
Susie, you’ve been outdone as usual. Get over it.
“…and he didn’t even have to research it…well done, Calvin!”
But of course he researched it! It says right there in the subtitle on his paper (two days ago): “An ExHaustivELY RESEaRCHED REPORT by CalviN”
Hey Margueritem - sorry to hear you were ill. Wondered why you hadn’t posted much lately. Hope you’re back on your feet (& keyboard)
Relax Susie, he’s only giving an honest opinion.
Relax Susie! He’s telling the truth!
That’s Calvin, the smartest!!!
Pow! Bam! To Mercury, Calvin. To Mercury!
Marg. I hope you feel much better sooner. I know the intestinal virus is terrible pain in the butt!
