    Don’t worry. When Dad can’t get to work because of them… hm, he could tell them that suffering builds character and rob them of their whole reason for being.

    Doesn’t Spaceman Spiff keep a flame thrower in his craft?

    “Gweedo Murray” is right…..look for Calvin to have a “stay at home” pain”. After all, you can’t hope to fight 15 Snow Goons………….

    You will run a lot slower with an axe in your hands,but you might feel safer. But what will happen if they should ever get that axe in their hands. Before you fall asleep ,think about this,snow goons armed with an axe . Should Mom be told of the perils tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Calvin worried about getting to school? And on a Saturday? This doesn’t look right.

    Calvin snowed in by the goons, lay awake in his room, when the goons reached 101 Calvin saw the morning sun he tossed them Suzie, with no small glee so he and Hobbes both could flee!

    **Good morning Marg! Good morning Fran! Good Morning L’Wolf! Good Morning Grog!**

    This is the first time that Calvin has wished that his best friend was a snow leopard, instead of a tiger.

    Calvin’s Mom can’t imagine what he is going through.

    Sadly, Calvin’s situation is very similar to what many kids go through in real life, when they are being bullied at school and their parents don’t know about it. The kids are afraid to go to school the next day and they may have trouble sleeping, but the parents don’t understand what is happening. The kids feel totally alone.

    Does Hobbes go to school or can he stay home with me and watch the goons grow their army?

    I’ve never actually seen the snow goons, but I know we have a lot of them. They keep leaving their cr*p in my driveway every night. :-)

    Calvin and Hobbes in the “Oh, Brother!” comic.

    By the way, I love the comic for July 25 on the site’s archive.

    Calvin would be lucky if there were still only 15 snow goons to outrun in the morning because it’s possible they’ll continue to multiply overnight while he’s laying there awake, scared and worried about what’s going to happen to him the next day. I, too, predict that he’s going to come up with some “ailment” as an excuse not to go to school … and I can’t say as I’d blame him either!

    Fifteen snow goons (and possibly multiplying even now as we speak) … no sweet dreams to be had here! This is definitely the kind of thing horrifying nightmares are made of instead!!!

    If Mom is willing to be your security guard on the way to the bus stop, no sweat Calvin. She seems to like that snowflake patterned Nordic sweater. Have to remember that you will be in your mother’s debt for a while, however….

    Calvin, fill dad’s garden sprayer with gasoline, soak the goons and then shoot a bottle rocket at them. You won’t get killed by snow goons AND you won’t have to go to school.

    You’ll be too busy down at the police station…

    Frankly, I think Hobbes could take 15 snow goons. Calvin is lucky to have such a good friend.

    Just because this strip is running on Friday, it doesn’t mean tomorrow is Saturday for Calvin. HE would DEFINITELY know when he didn’t have to go to school.

    I don’t think that claiming a flame thrower will work, but maybe Spaceman Spiff’s mertilizer/atomic napalm neutralizer will work.

    And I really, really hope, that the snow goons ARE just a product of Calvin’s inagination, or Mum is a really bad mother.

    But how can we ever know?

    Calvin always inhabits two equal worlds: the objective and the subjective. The explanations for each work–but only in that world. And we are never sure which is “true”.

    That’s right, gofinsc. And the strips from the past two weeks take place during a single day. That’s why Calvin’s Mom keeps wearing the same sweater.

    I’d think he should call the local hardware store and see if they ever got those flamethrowers in stock.
