    Calvin should aim for obscurity and avoid this possible indignity in history.

    Calvin, I don’t really think most people care that much about the childhood of famous people.

    You did not need to grow up for that Calvin – you have become world famous as a kid. Personally, you are inspiring.

    Just remember all of those that have it even worse than you. Hobbes has to go through the washing machine instead of a nice bath.

    Calvin, for 34 years you’ve been trending. You have Facebook page, a Twitter account and you’re probably a richer than Bezos now.

    Jean-Paul Marat and Jim Morrison regretted the time they spent in the tub.

    Just yell “Eureka”, jump out of the tub and run outside onto the street. You’ll be instantly famous.

    Calvin’s delusions of grandeur should disappear about the same time he realizes that girls smell good.

    Hard to believe that one of the world’s most famous comic strip characters spent much of his childhood unwillingly in the bathtub!

    If only Calvin could break through the fourth wall and see the future, he’d be surprised and probably a little embarrassed.

    Most great men got dirty and smelly becoming great. I am pretty sure they bathed though. Nobody wants to sit next to the smelly hero at the award ceremony.

    A few centuries ago sanitation, personal or otherwise, was not up to today’s standards. Samuel Pepys, upon boarding a carriage, was once admonished by a lady, “Sir, you smell.” His reply, “Madame, you have it wrong. You smell, I stink.”

    Doesn’t Calvin know how great it is to play the Submarine game in the tub?

    A neighbor boy did not like baths. Never understood that. The bath was always a quiet wind-down time for me.

    I don’t think the history books care two hoots about your bubble bath.

    President Taft has a bathtub story, but not from his youth.

    I’m historically significant. It’s just that you people aren’t paying attention.

    You can’t be a spaceman, detective, first husband and doctor at the same time.

    The solution is simple: Bathe willingly.

    This is just about the only way Calvin can claim to have had a squeaky clean childhood!

    I’d point to Winston Churchill as someone who kept bathing as a significant part of his daily ritual while British PM!
