The lesson we have learned today: don’t dig too deep.
No it was Hobbes. He didn’t follow the directions Calvin told him to.
Mom, just what is a closet for?
gotta love and loathe the stuffed closet avalanche gig
Mom you shouldn’t have let it get so bad. You should make him clean his room weekly, that way it won’t become Jeremy Duncan’s room when he’s only 6.
What kids don’t realize is that their parents used to be kids. They knew all of the tricks.
“’taint funny, McGee!”
That looks like dad’s HOUSE
Calvin just can’t win.
Reminds me of this… https://youtu.be/G248oZ5ygXw
and we all feel Calvin is heading for trouble after the last tatement
There goes the afternoon, Cal!
All of that stuff has to go somewhere!
Should have shoved it all under the bed.
oooooooo!!! weres that big paddle board!!
Calvin is technically correct.
haha- love the timing in the last panel, and mom’s annoyed expression. Being literally buried by mess, but so casual about it.
Gettin’ kinda full of yourself, huh Calvin? None of my boys would EVER have spoken to me in those words or with that tone.
My health insurer keeps calling. They want to come and inspect my house. I tell them I left the military a long time ago and have no intention of reupping. I figure it is a way to find an excuse to increase my premiums and reduce my coverages.
I do not think that Mom will follow that line of reasoning.
That’s Calvin – adapts fast to changing conditions.
You hear of autistics who have all their belongings arranged on shelves alphabetically by color? I’m not that kind of autistic.
“Who put the tribbles in the quadrotriticale?”
This is every bit Mom and Dads fault! They bought him all this stuff so they should be the ones to clean it up.
[MontyHallVoice] And let’s see what’s behind Door #1….[/MontyHallVoice]
Fibber McGees closet!
If I had spoken to MY mother like that when I was a kid, it would have earned me a major butt-whuppin’ from my dad when he got home from work that night ….. unless he was there at the time I dared to say it, then it would have happened right then and there on the spot!
Hmm, I don’t see the board he needed to pile stuff higher than the outflow factor (function of area and center of gravity, e.g., tippy vehicle roofs overloaded).
Fibber McGee lives!
Calvin’s closet is like Nate’s locker.
Heh, I think the perfect sound effect for between the third and fourth panels would be the classic Looney Tunes “junk crash” sound effect here…https://www.sounddogs.com/media/fastpreview/Sounddogs-Preview-10295073.mp3
Love the Mom’s expression in the last panel, too!
I generally like Calvin’s spirit, but his blatant disrespect for his parents is NOT happening. “Well, he has the right to express himself!”, someone might say. Well, I say “yourself” isn’t always worth expressing! Oftentimes, we’re just plain WRONG, and we need to dial ourselves down a bit. And NO child has any inherent “right” to talk to his or her parents like that.
I had tried this Calvin and it did not end well
“Now where did I put my three-dimensional blackboard?”
If Mom cleaned that up, Calvin would miss all of his stuff.
Sure thing. You have too much anyway. I shall decide what stays, what goes to good will and what goes to the dump.
I think Calvin just crossed the line.
Am I the only one bothered by the position of her head to her legs? I realize her torso is hidden, but the position looks completely unnatural, like she is broken in half.
