Mom has lost all her appetite now!!
That did it for HER dinner.
I know where that jar’s going, and it isn’t in the sink.
That just about helped me to lose my appetite.
Be proud mum! Btw, anyone knows mother’s name?
@GretchensMomThanks for posting the Calvin Ball rules yesterday! That was awesome!!!
Watterson’s genius is that he can remember the thought processes of a small child which most of us shed.
That must have been before dishwashing machines. But not before garbage cans.
There’s a Zappa for that (as opposed to there’s an app for that): It’s called Let’s Make the Water Turn Black.
Maybe some kind soul will post the link for me.
Well, Dogs, here it is.
You know, I’ve taught you how to do this two times already.
That’s ’snot phunny!
Make a good sauce for the stewed monkey brains….
Good thing I read this before breakfast…
Hopefully, they’re not eating scrambled eggs.
“Tons o’ snot” is a palindrome.
I’m sure mom will decide that that jar is disposable and need not be washed.
Today, Stripmates – you ALL SHINE! I’ll check back later to see who glowed the brightest.
“The snot I sneeze” … that should be a song title.
Time for a coughee break.
Are those scrambled eggs? Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. (Ok, maybe snot is a little greener…)
Whe Calvin sneezed, he thought it was an oyster but it’s “snot”.
warning .dont eat around Calvin,lol
Calvin’s impropriety is a jar …wide open, even! (Snagglepuss)
Poor Poor Mum.
When you’re dancing with your honeyAnd your nose is kinda runnyAnd you think it’s sorta funnyBut it’s snot.
I’ve been reading and enjoying this strip for many years and the over-riding and dominant theme as far as I can discern, is; why did Calvin’s parents have a child? Did they expect him to pop fully grown, mature, and adult like from the womb? They never play with him or take any interest in his amazing imagination and creativity. It’s really feels like a case of “us against him,” the little brat! Can anyone deny that there’s a lot of parents in this world who are totally unprepared and unrealistic about what having children involves? For one thing, children are expensive, they cost a lot of money. How many parents seem to be taken by surprise by this and resent their children for it? For another thing, children are childish and that can be fun or be hateful, depending on your point of view. They can bring out a grown-up’s sense of play and fun or they can bring out the WC Fields in them and evoke the toxic criticism and sarcasm that Calvin’s father always shows or the “oh go away, go outside and play in traffic” attitude that his mother has. Children also are very needy and dependent, (doh), and yet so many parents want to do what they want to do and blame the children that they brought into the world for needing so much and so often. Calvin’s parents should have stayed child-less in my opinion but they didn’t and so Calvin is very alone in the world and has had to create a friend from his fantasies, much like many, many other children whose parents are emotionally still children. Is it possble that if all children were properly and intelligently nurtured that our world wouldn’t be such a messed up place? Or is that a childish, silly, point of view? Has Watterson ever discussed his motives and background for Calvin’s family dynamic? It feels a lot like many I’ve seen, including my own.
This is the best Calvin and Hobbes strip ever! I remember reading it when I was 10 and it still slays me.
One of my favs!
I see now why Calvin’s parents are so skinny. Can’t have much of an appetite at that table.
what a face she made in the first panel! LOL!
Dinner chat ?
Oh, wow. Beyond gross. Nice.
Where is Hobbes today, has he fleed!
Mom needs to avoid visible reactions. Six-year-olds are always fascinated with bodily.fluids of all sorts.
Calvin has been watching too many Ren & Stimpy cartoons…
Back to the jar…Calvin why don’t you give it to Suzie? (is Suzie spelled right?)
Read bizaker’s post again s/he nailed it!
The fact that Calvin’s parents bought him a toy tiger to be his companion shows their love for Calvin.
Make Calvin clean it himself! : )
No one’s wondering how much Calvin could have possibly saved up?
Mom’s face in p1 is priceless. This is one of my favourite Calvin strips.
YOU might think it’s funny, but it’s snot…
Come on you guys,it must be an awful small jar ?Awful small boy.
OK Mom – time to rummage around in the closet and get out the Haz-Mat suit…
Awesome! Top 50 Calvin and Hobbes!
