    When I was Calvin’s age, I hated Sundays, too!

    Good Morning, Marg

    Calvin ought to know, since Hobbes’s thoughts are Calvin’s own. Sometimes I think the little guy just needs to keep himself on his own toes.

    Still, .25 cents for a workout like that, and he didn’t have to disinfect a machine, and wipe up someone else’s sweat to get it. NICE!

    Calvin’s lucky - I had to go to Sunday School when I was a kid. Missed alot of Rocky & Bullwinkle Shows in the days before VCR’s (or YouTube) were invented.

    Missing a lot of Rocky & Bullwinkle was not necessarily a bad thing in my books. I only watched that show as part of a captive audience when I was in the hospital, many many years ago, I’d have much rather have been sleeping, but the nurses wept waking me up for one reason or another.

    Actually, I’m impressed that a 6 year old knows what extortion is. Hobbs does not have fleas, though. Mom put him through the washer recently.

    I’ve heard the phrase, “you’ve got a tiger by the tail” meaning, I suppose, that the tiger can’t get you, but don’t let go or you’re in trouble.

    Calvin doesn’t have a tail so you’re always in trouble.

    I love Hobbes, but Calvin needs some human playmates of his own age. He lives in his fantasy world far too much…

    This one kinda reminds me of the Sunday Dennis the Menace comics where the first 2-3 panels had a separate story line. I love Hobbes’ logic. Make something more desirable by making it harder to get. Didn’t Tom Sawyer do something similar with the white wash? By the way… Thank God for Sunday comics and coffee.

    You don’t have to be in school to dislike Sundays, Calvin … a job you really really hate will make you feel that way too (and that period of time lasts waaaaaay longer than your school years! So stay in school and study hard for a job/career that you may actually look forward to going to someday!).

    Thebird55: Your comment is SO true: “Nothing can make you so angry with some one as them being right.” It reminds me of Mark Twain’s observation: “Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.”

    Hey old_MK!! Rocky and Bullwinkle!! Now THERE was a great comic strip. I wish it were available in “reruns” like the Calvin and Hobbes strip.

    A good point Poindexter! The variety of characters made the strip especially good. Rocky and Bullwinkle were only two of the many chatracters. The variety made it all the more interesting. From one day to the next you never knew what to expect.

    Calvin didn’t let Hobbes finish his statement. How rude! BTW, it’s a good thing the last panel is the last panel. Calvin might find another statement to be true. “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” Calvin might be fierce, but Hobbes can be a ‘ferocious tiger’ when aroused.

    Since Calvin thinks “people are scum” and is otherwise radically selfish (and a rebel with or without a cause to boot), is it any wonder he has no other close friends? He could even be close to Rosalyn the babysitter if he weren’t his own worst enemy.
