And they say Calvin doesn’t follow orders.
I randomly happen to know that the original pub date for this one was May 19, 1986. So it’s appearing here just short of exactly thirty years later.
Good move, Calvin. I think you’re in trouble.
Cue the creepy campfire stories.
Ah, the joys of English!
Calvin and Hobbes say they’re on a scouting trip and yet they’re the only ones around.I remember reading somewhere that in the early years of the strip there were multiple scouting strips. Bill Watterson dropped it, however, due to either he thought it lacked humor or he wanted the strip to focus on Calvin and Hobbes.
wow, 30 years. how time passess
30 years…“close enough for government work”
I love being in the high sierra wilderness without a tent, and if I am certain there is zero percent chance of moisture I don’t carry one. I tie my dog next to me so he doesn’t chase a bear or anything else in the night. I love the solitude of solo backpacking but all that weight puts a strain on my old arthritic body.
If there is Hobbes you need no Scoutmaster :-)
The meaning of some of our words can be confusing, but it doesn’t help to use the wrong word, either. The word you needed was throw, not through. Totally different meaning and pronunciation
Calvin’s in what, the first grade? That makes him 6, too young for cub scouts (who have a Cubmaster rather than a Scout Master). Even if he is 7 or 8, he is still too young to be a Boy Scout. The Cubs take 7 – 10 year olds, and the Scouts are 11 to 18.
LeadingEdge said, about 19 hours ago@neverenoughgoldI babysat once. He is dead now…
Oh dear! I bet you look before you sit now!
Made me laugh so hard, I almost had to sit down… not on a baby, of course!
Who needs a silly old tent anyway? There’s nothing like sleeping under the stars and the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze.xxx
Let’s go hike for shelter.
Camping: Where supposedly sane people pay big bucks to live like the homeless.
No merit badge for you…
Well, he did follow orders. Nobody can scold him. If he misinterpreted it, well, that’s another story. Go find a cave or something, it feels more natural.
