fastest with the mostest,wins the day.
It costs much time and patience to make the best snowball!!
Shoddy and quick got the desired result…
Art loses to having more dakka.
Quantity wins over quality!
Speed kills, Calvin. Time just wasn’t on your side.
Shock and Awe
Susie sure has an arm on her, knocked Calvin right out of his hat, gloves, galoshes, and shoes. Calvin just learned a good lesson in tactics, throw then shout. And Hobbes of course is always the philosopher.
Sign her up. Spring training is about to start
And now we all know the difference between Walmart & the corner Mom & Pop’s store
Rule one. Never take a knife to a gun fight. Rule two. Never fight with a woman.
Live & Learn Calvin… THAT is how you deliver a punchline!!
I wonder if this old strip was the inspiration for Snowcraft? Google it and play. What a riot.
Also a good comment on dangers of over-engineering. Keep it simple, stupid!
And so it goes….
This strip shows why Watterson was always talking about art in comics. Today’s strip simply could not be published these days.
With four rotating arms, Susie has a distinct advantage!
Susie has a more successful ‘line’ of snowballs!Maybe Calvin should use his artistry to make nests,and ‘stick’ with it!
that girl allways did have a good arm.
Shoddy craftmanship again wins the day.
Hey, Calvin! Whatever happened to your standards of mediocrity???
not a snowballs chance in Hell!!!!!
As J. Stalin said “Quantity has a quality of its own”
It’s always nice when you can have a woman undress you.
Calvin logic once again loses in reality.
Love the shoes, socks, hat, and gloves suspended in the air…it knocked me out! Watterson is an artist.
That’s right Hobbes!
Susie got you there, Calvin!
How does Hobbes keep his feet from getting wet?
POW POW POW POW! great art!
Shoddy quick and EFFECTIVE wins the day Calvin. Your genius is wasted on snowballs.
One snow ball on target and she is swinging another,take cover brave hearts,Susie has invented deadly rapid fire.
Bill Watterson’s commentary on people being a slave to efficiency struck me enough to save this. My girlfriend is all about efficiency and money. There’s no more doing things for their own sake.
mine used to have pine needles in them
Quantity has a quality all it’s own. And don’t over-engineer it.
I have some artisanal snowballs that may interest you. Made using natural snow harvested from the north face below the peak of Mount Whitney on January 15th of each year (the coldest average day of the year there). Formed into perfect spheres by former Tibetan monks who studied the Zen of Snowball under the Dalai Llama as a child. Finished with a light dusting of talc from the deserts of South Africa, to effect a patina of elegance. Grace your snow fort with the best for $5000 each. Contact us for bulk quantity prices.
The difference between a Rolls Royce and a Fiat
Calvin can never get ahead of Susie!
Was a lost tradition Calvin, but Susie seems to have found it. Lol frosty.
I have read all the Calvin and Hobbes :/
