Spoken like a true elected official.
Happy Valentine’s Day
were in Taiwan now on Chinese New Year…..
OMG!The secret’s out!!
Happy Valentine’s day!!
Dick and Jane will NEVER be the same!!
Calvin do not forget a valentine for Mom and Susie .
See Calvin write! Write, Calvin, write!
Does this philosophy also apply to tele-prompters?Winter is almost over.Can spring be far behind?
oh YEAH, baby – way to go!!!!
He’s in good company.
I came down with academia once but fortunately a prescription was able to get it under control and then eradicate it. Sometimes an academic breaks out and mass inoculations are necessary.
Watterson once said he liked Calvin’s ability to “precisely articulate stupid ideas.”
Hobbes reminds me a lot of Oliver Hardy
Brilliant insight Calvin.
He makes that book sound dirty.
Actually Calvin is the head writer for FOX News
That’s a lot of big words, Calvin. I wonder what your I.Q. is.
I am so thrilled to be on the Planet of Valentines with Penny. We read 7 of the same comic strips. Yipeee.
Even if he doesn’t know what the words mean, the fact he spelled them all correctly puts him heads and shoulders above most of his readers!
elected officials aren’t that loquacious. They have to dumb down the speech to the level of the uneducated and brainless layman. Especially in the US where the majority value religion more than Science.
He’s speaking like a Keynesian economist who doesn’t know how to solve a problem but makes it sound like he does.
John Maynard Keynes did this in an entire book (The General Theory) which is the foundation of mainstream economics today – and thus is used to make confusing and conflicting policy recommendations to DC.
Calvin may be correct, but the corollary to writing is reading, and while exchange of factual data is part of the reason for reading, avoiding obfuscation and interpreting reasoning is the most important part. So, everybody, write. Then, everybody, read!
When this strip originally ran, I sued Watterson for plagiarizing my dissertation title.
That has PHD written all over it.
…chaos, panic, disorder…my work here is done…
Ok…someone tell me why this child’s still in school? His vocabulary is that of a college professor. Lol
Happy Valentines Day!!
The sad truth is that much of academian writing is exactly like that.
You won’t be saying that when you get your assignments returned to you because of spelling errors.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, EVERYONE!
May you all have a wonderful day.
That is way too familiar
…what we have here is a failure to confusicate….
This is called the CBSM. ’C’alvin. ’B’ull. ’M’ethod. The ‘S’ I’ll leave to your imagination.
see Hobbes runRun Hobbes, run
Sheer genius! That will make Wormwood ajust her glasses several times.
Even the most mundane and superfluous topic can be made to seem interesting, even fascinating, by liberal application of obfuscating loquaciousness!(Translation: Dumb things look smart with lots of big words.)
kid’s got a point! :-D
I think that he’s nailed it on the head
“Obscure poor reasoning”. But… that’s a good thing,isn’t it?
Oh, dear, Calvin’s into purple prose now, isn’t he?
So The Three Bears is about theft?
Nuts! Macadamia, here I come!
Calvin’s pathological imperatives relating to Susie, engender irreducible, …irresolvable, even, gender modes, after a fashion.
Go ahead and give him his PhD in English now. Of course it will be just as useless to him as child as it will be to him as an adult – very poor job market for English Lit majors.
A buddy of mine did a book report on Dick and Jane for Grade 12 English. Got a good mark for it too!
Say What. I guess it works in literature.

A translation: Dick and Jane get into it with each other: video and commentary on channel 5 at 6 p.m.
OMG why would calvin do a report on a book like Dick and Jane? The whole book is like one sentence repeated over and over.
