Nine equally inept players.
There might be a problem if Calvin duplicated himself to make a baseball team, the duplicates will fight over which position they want.
If it’s a duplicate of you, I can see where there may be a problem here.
The REAL baseball or that Australian rip off
A more immediate problem will be: How to decide which Calvin is the duplicate who has to clean up the room.
The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ Calvin / Gang aft agley.
One Calvin is one too many!
What makes you think the duplicate is going to want to clean up the room?
Look out world!
The problem with duplicates is one of them always turns out evil, more evil than you. You’re doomed.
ohhhhh noooo 2 of Calvin!!! yikes!!!
The duplicate may make you clean it, Calvin!
I’ve seen how he plays—9 Calvins would still have trouble beating Charlie Brown
If this machine works and creates more Calvins, the whole world is doomed.
Even duplicate Calvin won’t want to clean the room, plus they’d make twice the mess.
And if you don’t want to clean your room, are you sure your duplicate will?
How can you not love the kid?
DOH! (apologies to the Simpsons and many others who have ran with this theme)
Is this arc where they got the idea for the movie Multiplicity that came out a few years after this?
“I’ll make the duplicate do it” gee, and the duplicate will listen to your orders why?
Sounds like a 3D printer.
Just more of him to love, Mom and Dad!
He’ll be beside himself! What could go wrong?
And by winter, you’re own RELIGION !! lol
This was before Michael Keaton’s “Multiplicity”…https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117108/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0
Duplicate Hobbes and then have him (them) hide behind the door when Calvin comes home.
This can’t end well. :P
A whole baseball team of Calvin(s) ?!? Now that would be awesome entertainment.
I still remember when I first saw the cover for Scientific Progress Goes “Boink” and was so confused as to why there were two Calvins…
In the last frame, Calvin goes out of character and addresses the readers directly. Look at his eyes.
If I even dared to make more than 2 extras of myself, the local coffee shop would run out of java and donuts!
Dear God, NO!
I wonder if he will make copies of copies? They tend to get a little dim!
Well…nine Calvins is 443 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, or 264 degrees below zero Celsius. Uhh…wait, that’s Kelvins, not Calvins. Apologies to Lord Kelvin, a really cool guy. Fahrenheit and Celsius were also cool guys, but we in the USA would be better off if Fahrenheit had slept in that day, with his mild fever.
With a baseball team parentes certainly are overstrained!!
Real inventors aren’t keen on testing their products on themselves first. Or did Calvin already duplicate something else before showing Hobbes?
I thought Calvin didn’t even like baseball.
Warrerson said that it would be scary to duplicate yourself and find out what everyone else already knows about us
You’re going to regret this, Calvin….
That’s exactly the reason why parents stopped after calvin was born.
A baseball team fulla Calvins? Better than my hapless Orioles. Sigh
Does anybody else remember the Bat brothers in Pogo? Walt Kelly played around with the humor of confused identity way back in the (1950s probably).
