I wish you would let some one else write it Calvin.
It’s right time for revision!
Seems to be the order of the day, Calvin might as well be in on it. Oh … yeah, he is, on a daily basis! lol!
Sounds about right.
can Hobbes write too…?
Brilliant analysis; somewhat questionable conckusion.
Panel three is so right on!
The winners write the history. Or re-write it. Or inmany cases DON’T write it!
But if someone else wrote it – as distinguished from ghost writer – it wouldn’t be an AUTObiography, then, would it? But perhaps that’s about as Revisionist as one can get….
I was expecting Calvin to be doing his History homework.
It could be worse, Calvin… It could be “Nineteen Eighty-Four.”
I’ll bet this autobiography includes a highly sanitized version of the infamous “noodle incident”. Or maybe ignores it altogether.
Sounds like Calvin already knew what was going to happen in modern history books.
Profound statement, it explains so much of todays news.
The grand-parents were taught one version of history, the parents were taught something very different, the grand kids are taught something totally different again. Why do the generations have different world views? What will they be teaching in 10-20 years?
Perhaps mom could go outside and play with him. There are moms who do that.
Example: When I was a kid, we learned that “Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 14-hundred-92” and got all excited at the idea that we would see a 500th anniversary of this great explorer. By the time the anniversary arrived, Columbus was an evil alien invader plague-spreader, and the event was marked with more protests than celebrations.
Calvin comes up all these weird stuff!
I think, that Mr. Watterson should try to put Calvin’s observations in the words of a six-year old and not his adult language, then it would be more believable.
It is a tragedy when we do not invent a “fiction” to explain the events of our own life and put them into some sort of coherent narrative.
Isn’t it ironic that Calvin is writing a revisionist autobiography—evidently because he feels the lack of a coherent narrative?
Maybe he needs a stable set of values, one that he feels he can live with.
“How many times have they re-written the bible?”-—————————————————————————————-At least a dozen or so times. This strip is a lot closer to the truth than more people will ever realize. Just how much of what we call history is true? How many times has it been re-written?
I had to read a Canadian tourist guide to learn that the British burning Washington in the War of 1812 was not a gratuitous act of British nastiness,but rather retaliation for our lot’s having earlier burnt York [now Toronto]. Onesmall example….
