    At least it’s not Hamster Huey again, right Dad?

    When you live in a green jungle, orange, black, and white are the wrong colours for camouflage. And yet those huge beasts are invisible (and totally silent) until the last minute. Which is usually too late for you. I think it’s because, like all other cats, they have a built-in invisibility cloak.

    An appropriate ode for the morning after the Clemson Tigers won the national championship.

    Camouflage can also be about just breaking up the outline to confuse an onlooker. Take zebras. One zebra is pretty much a sitting duck. But in a herd of stampeding zebras, the black and white patches jumping back and forth as the zebras cross back and forth might cause a lion to have to think about where to strike, and by that time, the zebra is out of reach.

    Also check out the camouflage that warships used in the early 20th century. Same theory. I’m not sure how well it worked. It didn’t do HMS Hood any good. But it was used until anti-shipping missiles made the whole idea obsolete.

    A dead giveaway to the fact that this strip is really old: it rhymes.

    I don’t know if I would have done this as a father, but I’d like to think that if I had a kid who had written something like this, I would really enjoy the experience of reading it aloud to him. You have to have fun with your kids. It’s a reward both of you get for the times you have to be a father.

    Well, in as much as Calvin is Hobbes, I am thinking it is a pretty impressive poetic effort. Well done Hobbes.

    Funny that Calvin knows the term “haute couture”, and can spell it correctly (if Dad’s words are reading it as it is spelled)… :-P

    I don’t care what they say, this kid has a future. American Greetings, Hallmark or maybe a band!

    I always thought an orange cat was pretty hard to hide, then I saw one walk into a field of tall winter killed grass…and disappear!

    So what’s the situation here? When Calvin and Hobbes are alone, Hobbes is alive and he wrote the poem. When Calvin’s dad is present, Hobbes is a stuffed tiger and Calvin wrote the poem?

    The proper camouflage to wear while reading this is dressing like a hipster and standing in a coffee shop.

    Curtis as much effort of work as you wrote, you could apply that effort for school.

    I would be impressed if my 5 yr old’s “tiger” wrote such things. Everything spelled correctly AND what a vocabulary.

    Should be titled “An Ode to Hobbs”.

    Even when Calvin is not trying to get into the tree house, Hobbes must be worshiped.

    TIGER, tiger, burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

    In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare seize the fire?

    And what shoulder and what art Could twist the sinews of thy heart? And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand and what dread feet?

    What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? What dread grasp Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

    When the stars threw down their spears, And water’d heaven with their tears, Did He smile His work to see? Did He who made the lamb make thee?

    Tiger, tiger, burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Dare frame thy fearful symmetry? (William Blake)
