In real life (at least had it been like mine), Calvin would never have made it to the backyard after a retort like that. And he would’ve deserved the detention.
But then, this is Calvin & Hobbes, not real life: a place where a kid gets to say everything he wishes he could get away with. Some days I can laugh at that, and some days I wonder what Bill W. was thinking…and I can think those two totally different things about the same strip on different days (or hours, or even minutes).
