    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.

    Rule one. Never take a knife to a gun fight. Rule two. Never fight with a woman.

    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!

    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 Today’s strip simply could not be published these days.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!

    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.

    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.
