Is it heaven if you’re always hungry?
Surely there’s plenty of tuna fish and salmon in Heaven, since those are Hobbes’ favorite foods.
Panel 3: nice save, Calvin, considering you were talking to a tiger.
Heaven is vegetarian! so nice.
Calvin somehow solves the Heaven paradox: Why they can’t logically exist!
My idea of heaven is being surrounded by mythical creatures. Mostly the nymphs from “Rayman”.
Is it possible to be happy without eating people? I doubt it, but, if it is possible, perhaps tigers in Heaven don’t want to eat people.
Hey Everyone! QOTD: How, in your opinion, does Hobbes and Calvin interact, yet Hobbes isn’t real?
Maybe they have Beyond People in heaven.
Don’t worry Hobbes. There’s always a fresh supply down stairs.
Heaven is the place everyone wants to go but no one wants to die to get there.
I certainly hope tigers go to heaven. For now, I cling to the thought I’ll be reunited with my tiny tiger some day.
That’s assuming Calvin’s going to heaven?
There’s a direction this could be taking that wouldn’t be too good for Calvin…
Doesn’t Calvin know that “cats” like to play with their “food?”
Perhaps the Tigers in Heaven keep out the bad people by eating them?
In heaven, everything is fine. You’ve got your good things, and I’ve got mine.
“But it’s all right now, I’ve learned my lesson well. You see, you can’t please everyone, so you got to please yourself.” (Rick Nelson, teenage philosopher)
I know Calvin is glad he has Hobbs because he’s the only one who has the tolerance to listen to Calvin’s crazy rhetoric!
Apparently (according to “Supernatural”), the one who just took over the God job just vastly improved Heaven, so perhaps that specific contradiction has been solved… ☺
“In Heaven there is no beer;That’s why we drink it here.”
Don’t worry Hobbes. In Heaven there would be something even better for tigers to eat!
And that.. is the very dilemma of heaven. “Isaiah 11:6–9 The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them” stretches ones imagination.
You certainly wouldn’t want to be in heaven with a bunch of unhappy tigers.
Maybe they are given steaks every morning and not hungry?
Well Calvin, every living Species has their own version of Heaven.
But don’t sweat it. You can always visit him or have him over to yours. You better stick with the latter since you would never follow the Rules that govern Hobbs’.
What’s heaven for some is hell for others.
Imagine there’s no heaven
The Book of Isaiah suggests tigers, and other predators, may become vegans after the Second Coming. THAT might not make Hobbes happy.
Since Heaven doesn’t actually exist, he doesn’t have anything to worry about.
why don’t I get the Calvin and Hobbs emails every day Like I use to??
There’s a simple solution: Heaven for humans is hell for tigers, and heaven for tigers is hell for humans.
“Maybe in heaven, tigers just don’t eat people.”
One thing for sure it is going to be totally new and different.
man, its truly been a while since Watterson went into the shadows, I hope that he’ll appear again someday, maybe.
The last time I was in Heaven I didn’t SEE any tigers, but I wasn’t really looking for them.
That plus the fact that tigers are masters of camouflage makes me wonder.
Next time I’ll pay better attention.
Those are pretty thought provoking arguments. Both right now tiger conservation takes precedence. Calvin can be nominated for the brand ambassador.
It was a conversation similar to this one with a Sunday School teacher that first caused me to question Christianity and Heaven. I asked her if dogs went to heaven too and would I see my dogs there. She replied that there were no unclean animals in heaven, it was for humans only. I wondered why I would possibly want anything to do with a place that did not allow animals and thus began my drift away from organized religion. I was 10 or 11.
