    The rain barrel part of the house must still be in the 19th century.

    If Calvin’s parents found him in the rain barrel, they’ll wonder how he got himself therein without toppling it over.

    If Calvin paid attention in class, he would know cats don’t like water.

    My old grandma used to collect rain water in a rain barrel and then use it to wash her hair. I guess it has its uses.

    Given Calvin’s rep, Hobbes should’ve seen that one coming.

    As it’s all in his imagination did he really end up in the barrel, or even get wet? It’s all in the mind you know…

    Put goldfish in barrel for Spring-Autumn. Then fish went into pond for Winter. No skeeters. As a ‘plus’, goldfish manure in water for garden., etc.

    You ever notice just how much bigger and more soak-inducing water balloons are in this strip compared to real life water balloons?

    Growing up in Ecuador, I can still remember playing with water balloons during Carnaval.The authorities discouraged the practice, but no one really paid attention, since it was open season to soak anybody coming close to you. My grandparent’s house was ideal for this. We would fill dozens of balloons and go to the second story terrace were we would hurl them at unsuspecting passersby on the street. The spout on the bidet was the perfect way of filling these rubber bombs.

    I wonder what observers external to Calvin’s imagination see here. Did he dunk himself in the rain barrel?

    So if Hobbes is NOT real, I guess he would tell his parents that he decided to jump into the water barrel all on his own? And how did he get in? And do people still have those? (OK – I’m done with channeling Sheldon Cooper for now…)

    “No fun to play games with a poor sport.” And yet, Hobbes still plays with him anyway.
