    One should praise Calvin for his recycling effort.

    I never would have thought that she could be grossed out that easily.

    That would be one ghastly set of putrid brown crayons.

    Calvin must have been the inspiration for Carl from “As Told by Ginger.”

    I think Calvin is often clueless when others think he is intentionally gross…

    originally he wanted to save his used toilet paper…it is like asking for a flame thrower when you really want a b.b. gun..

    I tried Googling “uses for ear wax,” but there was nothing about making candles or crayons.

    Makes one wonder if that’s really possible.

    Mythbusters tried that. Makes a lousy candle.

    She seemed rather disgusted, Calvin. Probably not.

    Not much variety of colour in those crayons, though.

    And to think, this cartoon predates Shrek.

    And yes @ARF2 (I love Helix) that’s the myth that was sort of busted.

    @The Wolf In Your Midst,That was “hilarious” as my five-year-old granddaughter used to say, but maybe you should have kept one ear to the ground so you could hear whether anyone was coming.

    Grossness alert re earwax:

    They say earwax consistency, (powdery / waxy) depends on heredity. I have one of each, wonder what that means.

    Probably just means I need to be more conscientious when it comes to personal hygiene.

    @LeadingEdge,“I find it produces a superb luster and sheen to a car’s finish.”

    Charlie Sheen once staged a car crash to avoid the Tonight Show. That adds sheen to a car’s finish in more ways than one. :o)

    OK. That is too far.

    But hilariously funny all the same!

    I checked out mythbusters, and what they tested was something very different. Apparently there is a bizarre home remedy where you can supposedly clean the wax out of your ear by sticking one end of a hollow candle in your ear, and then lighting the other end, supposedly sucking ear wax up into the candle (which could never work). The procedure has been examined and found to be both dangerous and ineffective. No wax is removed from the ear, and sometimes ears actually can become plugged or burned with molten candle wax. People can be burned in other ways, too. Two cases exist where people attempting this set their house on fire, with one fatality. Quoting Health Canada, “There is no scientific proof to support claims that ear candling provides medical benefits. … However, there is plenty of proof that ear candling is dangerous.” This has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of. If you want to remove wax from your ear, there are ways to do it that are actually safe, and effective, so use those, and not one that is insanely stupid.

    Shrek would’ve liked it. btw, Ogre body chemistry could differ from human, which is why it worked for him.

    Where is Hobbes (our Hobbes, not Calvin’s Hobbes)?

    It is the wrong kind of wax to begin with. Now our bodies generate it to protect the inner ear canal. Just too much accumulates and it has to be cleaned out like our noses.

    Very interesting! After reading your comment, I got some tissues and tried blowing my ears. That being unsuccessful, I asked my wife if she would blow into my ears; unfortunately, if I wrote down what she said, I would be quickly excommunicated from GoComics, so I’ll leave it to your imagination…

    Well, some people have dry wax, and some have wet. Picking works for the dry kind. Which would make a better candle, though?

    Mythbusters tried it. Eawax is too contaminated with skin calls, hair, etc to burn
