    Problem is there aren’t enough tigers to eat all of them.

    Hobbes often makes me wonder…if animals could talk, would they be as egotistical about their respective species as we are?

    This gets a ‘love’ for Hobbes’s cheesy grin at least.

    As part of your training, Calvin, to be the greatest spy hero of all time, you must learn to sleep with one eye open.

    I think the point is “Let sleeping tigers lie” as Hobbes was asleep in the first panel…

    In a future strip (spoilers):

    Calvin: “I ask you, as a tiger, what is our purpose? Why are we here?”

    Hobbes: “We’re here to devour each other alive.”

    Today’s strip may be unique in that it has four panels but uses the punchline in the second panel. Some other four-panel strips have used the punchline in the third panel and the reaction in the fourth panel but this one has used the last two panels to show the reaction to the punchline.

    Hobbes’ statement is flawed, at least in terms of eating Calvin.Hobbes has stated that “ little boys don’t smell good”. When has a cat EVER eaten something that didn’t smell good ? As for Calvin’s parents…they might need to sleep with one eye open.

    I don’t buy it. Humans are hardly the easiest prey for tigers and, in fact, do more than any other species to endanger tigers.

    Not true. Only injured tigers who cannot hunt normally become human killers.
