Calvin, the spelling is above your head.
Calvin: “How do you spell nincompoop?”. Me" C-A-L-V-I-N!"
All is in the strategy to make you lose your tracks. But with Susie, you’ll never get it right .
I think the first letter is 234567896567564567845676545456780076789
If he ever joins the track team, people will wonder why he runs like a spy.
And what do you call someone who insults a sharp-clawed tiger to his face?
Oh, just call him nincompoophead!
Soon Calvin makes like a tree and leaves.
Just look up in your word balloon!
Calvin couldn’t spell the real word let alone spell it in his code.

Hey Calvin, I’d lose the attitude…you never know who’s around to rat you out to Mom or Dad!
The word dates back to the 1670s, some maintain the origin is the Latin phrase non compos mentis, but that’s controversial. Whatever, it’s a pretty sophisticated term, and we should give Calvin credit for using it.
Calvin, you are a secret agent man. They’re giving you a number and they’re taking away your name.
At this pace Susie will be in grade three by the time they launch the water balloons.
Dissension in the ranks! What this club needs is a reliable sergeant at arms.
It is wise of Hobbes to let Calvin carry the water balloon.
Wow, I think this is how the CIA got started.
Susie is getting bored waiting for the attack.
They really have a lot of devotion to it
Leave it to these two to make pranking Susie more difficult than it should be.
We neighborhood kids decided to play army, so we divided into two armies and went our separate ways to plan our attack. Dave was the oldest on our side, and drew our plan on the sidewalk with a rock. Then he said we had to erase it by rubbing it with out shoes so the enemy would not find it. I didn’t have any shoes on. We were still working on that when the enemy came and that was the end of that game.
“Let’s go soak Susie” makes me laugh. It’s worded in such a funny way.
I’m always being followed. Luckily, I’m cunning.
Based on the code Calvin invented it will take a long time.
Watterson was so talented. I wonder if he regretted ending the strip.
I mean how smart is Calvin listening to an orange pumpkin like tiger.
Give it time. In 10 years Susie may be Calvin’s girlfriend.
1 eternity later: “Now let’s hide behind the bush”
From the size of his code numbers, that will be one LONG message
The word nincompoop has always made me laugh. Thanks, Calvin/Bill.
Map reading and following directions are survival instinctive traits of boys and that feline is an added bonus. Have fun fellas. But dont hurt Susie. She is a darling to all of us apart from Hobbes.
