    Maybe you should shock your Mom, Calvin,by making your bed before she has a chance to tell you to make it… ;)

    ORMouseworks, there was a storyline where Calvin created a “good” version of himself that did all his chores, homework, and was even nice to Susie. One of my favorite C&H lines comes from that storyline, where the good Calvin says, “I am NOT Calvin, I am the physical manifestation of Calvin’s good side,” and Susie says, “If that were true, you’d be a lot smaller,” and good Calvin says to the reader, “You wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve heard that.”

    Zero-Gabriel, Sony, et. al., want us to be impressed with their dancing robots. I keep saying to the videos, “Show me one cleaning a toilet and then I’ll be impressed.”

    uh oh! Calvin’s making it ‘we’ and ‘us’ again. It should be ‘I’ and ‘me’.

    Is he not in fact a somewhat hidden dual personality who, especially when alone (with his alter ego of course), applies quantum physics to risky ventures ? His parents should hire a PI solely to observe him. At the very least a very interesting little guy, thanks a lot to his creator.

    Work at what you love and you’ll never work.

    My brother-in-law works at what he loves: drinking beer, lying on the couch and is on the dole.

    So, Mom, take a hint to make it fun: Tell Calvin you are magically turning him into a robot that makes beds!

    All work and no play makes Calvin an inventor.

    An imaginary robot may not be good enough for mom, Calvin. I don’t think she fully appreciates Hobbes’ abilities yet.

    Calvin’s comment in the last panel is a direct descendant of Mark Twain’s observations about work in ‘Tom Sawyer.’

    Unfortunately that is not going to work Calvin dude. It is also more work. At the office I create an excel program for all my accounting functions. at first it is more work but in the long run it saves me work and time.
