It s not going to be boring for long.
Calvin is a clever kid with a vivid imagination. A typical public school is failing him completely. He needs to be in a science magnet school that challenges him.
hah! freedom of expression one out of the window!
“You can’t handle the truth!”
Honesty got you nowhere.
He forgot to raise his hand
I’d say things are just about to get interesting for you, Calvin.
using the word kill and school is not acceptable now
I am with you all the way, Calvin.
Did that on my first day of Grade 5. Needless to say, set the tone for the whole year.
Kind of like when Joe Wilson yelled, “liar” on the House floor.
In panel 3, Calvin is literally opening his big mouth. Perhaps Bill Watterson drew a bit of inspiration from The Muppets with that one, since Calvin’s head looks like a Muppet head with the big mouth. Also Lucy from Peanuts.Today’s strip is at least the second time that speaking the truth has set Calvin “free:”Click here: Calvin and Hobbes (September 22, 1992)Click here: B.C.

I don’t think there exists an elementary school where every subject is interesting.
so hot in Thailand 39c you know what …?
BORRING TOO COZ SO HOT
I totally agree with Calvin!
First smile of the day!
Yeah well… SADLY most schools/teachers have a very narrow-minded way of teaching… with a one-size-fits-all mentality.-Most (schools/teachers) don’t even try to make learning interesting, nothing but textbook stuff…, plenty of Fizz and NO Bang at all.
Calvin almost reminds me of Shawn Spencer from the TV-series ‘PSYCH’.-Shawn (Spencer) in some ways, fights his father’s (who was a Police Officer) every attempt to mould him the same way Calvin fights every attempt to mould him too…
You had that coming to you, Calvin.
Gotta love Calvin—the Anti-Dennis the Menace.
Calvin probably spends more time in the principal’s office than the principal does himself!!!!! ;-)
This is what i feel like sometimes during math!!
Is he in literacy or music class? If he is, Calvin, I know how you feel.
I did this once. A substitute teacher kept trying to tell the class that the teacher’s log showed the class to be on a section two chapters ahead of where we actually were. After ten minutes, I blithely spoke out loud “Just shut up”..Neither the actual teacher or the substitute we seen the next year..I did pass the class, mostly out of boredom …
Good to see you back, Hobbes.
This is so true it’s scary
