you’ll come back, Calvin, when you’re really hungry after parents hide the cookies
I wish I would have thought of this back when my parents made me eat green peas and corn : /. I still don’t like those two foods,but the peas are better with ketchup.
And Calvin wonders why he’s weaker than even Hobbes, real or not.
Can’t believe Mom and Dad can be that easily manipulated.
Look! Dad can spin his head around backwards.
This six year old will ask for junk food in 5 minute straight.
Be careful if you try for dessert. Calvin. It’d booby-trapped.
I think Calvin is a direct descendant of The Sicilain, Vizzini.
I had a co- worker that maintained that he only ate steak and potatoes, he died of a heart attack at the age of 45———Gosh, I wonder why?
“magic”, the subtle art of misdirection!
Considering the food always looks predigested, I don’t blame Calvin.
Mom: Then make your choice.
Calvin: I will! And I choose…What in the world can that be?
Mom: What? Where? I don’t see anything.
Calvin: Oh, well, I-I could have sworn I saw something. No matter.
Mom: What’s so funny?
Calvin: I’ll tell you in a minute, but first, let’s drink. Me from my glass, and you from yours.
Mom: You guessed wrong.
Calvin: You only think I guessed wrong! That’s what’s so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is “Never get involved in a land war in Asia.” But only slightly less well known is this: “Never go in against Spaceman Spiff when death is on the line!”
[laughs maniacally for a few seconds, then stops abruptly and falls over dead.]
Did someone say opportunity?
Can’t you hear me knockin’ on your window
Can’t you hear me knockin’ on your door
Can’t you hear me knockin’ down your dirty street, yeah
Performed by The Rolling Stones
Pretty clever of you calvin by using speed and fake distractions?
Like… “Mom won’t notice that her plate is suddenly twice as full, while mine’s completely empty!”
“You only think I guessed wrong! That’s what’s so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders – The most famous of which is ‘never get involved in a land war in Asia’ – but only slightly less well-known is this: ‘Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!’”
Note to Calvin’s Mom and Dad: If Calvin is still outsmarting you, folks, you need to up your parenting game!
I love green peas, got where do not like carrots or corn. Calvin will be hungry later.
Mom needs to be a better cook.
If I chose not to eat what I was served, I could sit at the table until it was gone, or until bedtime (about 4 hours) without entertainment of any kind… except my sibs coming by to see if I was still being stupidly stubborn. I could ask to be served “no thank you” helpings of whatever had a yuck-factor, but neither seconds of other items, dessert nor snacks if so. (what a hard life, eh? /s). As a growing kid, I was constantly hungry, so I learned to eat what I was served, because if so, and I was still hungry when the prepared food was gone (big family, slightly constrained budget), I was always allowed to have a PBnJ sandwich. Or, as a teen, more than one.
That’s OK. Mom loves goulash.
