    Don’t worry, Mom, he’s hooked. He just won’t admit it.

    It’s not like it would be complicated because you always want your Dad to read that same book over and over again when its your bed time.

    Sounds like Calvin believes in keeping his life simple, like Henry David Thoreau. But when Thoreau wrote, “Simplify, simplify,” he wasn’t talking about willful ignorance.

    I wonder if the book was Hamster Huey and the Gooey Kablooie

    Did Calvin really read it, or did Hobbes give him the book report on it?

    Thanks, leftwingpatriot. The comics are one of the great pleasures of life. Why should we deliberately deny ourselves pleasure by engaging in nasty political arguments, when we could instead be enjoying sharing with each other one of the greatest comic strips ever created?It’s sort of like sitting down in your favorite chair to enjoy your all-time favorite movie with your best friends, but then deciding that all of you should stand on one leg and watch two hours of infomercials instead.

    You know with kids so fat and lazy these days with their videos games etc. I really think it’s better to see Calvin running and ripping than sitting around reading his summer away. I did well in school and am a college graduate but in the summer time we played. Sitting around reading was the last thing I wanted to do.

    I didn’t read yesterday’s “Baby Blues” until after I’d read this yesterday, but it had a book theme that made a lot of sense. Maybe somebody could post it?

    The life of a 6 year old is SOOOO complicated already. How dare you try to induce him to think? What were you … thinking?

    I once read a book called “How to Improve your Memory”

    I don’t remember much it about though.

    Awaiting groans.

    Calvin’s response to his Mom, “It’s complicating my life.” says he did read the book and did understand what he read.

    There is hope for Calvin after all…

    @LeadingEdge: I guess the idea there must be that if you have a log sticking out of your eye, especially if it’s one of those redwood tree trunks, you won’t be able to see where you are going and you will probably just bonk your brother in the eye with the log. After that, both of you will have to refer to the passage that says that if a blind man leads a blind man, both of them will fall into a pit.

    Neither left or right along the politico-religio-social line, rather slightly outside of it.

    @LeadingEdge: Actually, I deliberately missed the point. I was writing tongue-in-cheek for entertainment purposes. Or was it log-in-eye? I guess a Biblical literalist would have to assume that logs were somewhat smaller 20 centuries ago. :>)

    @leftwingpatriot: Perhaps there were Biblical veterinary ophthalmic surgeons, in case a needle went through the eye of a camel. (Sorry about the painful humor.)

    Well, that makes sense because we know a camel can’t go through an eye of a needle.

    @leftwingpatriot: I think it’s the camel’s humps that are the problem.

    @leftwingpatriot: But if they make the needle’s eye that large, a log could get in it.

    Straight out of Farenheit 451: what’s written in books disturbs people, so burn the books.
