It’s probably lemon ices now.
Keep jacking up the prices, and then you’ll strike it rich.
Is Calvin for real?! The weather is basically a freezer now.
know of anyone who drinks cold drinks outside in the cold?
Calvin would sell refrigerators to the Inuit .
Bonds? Conservative cat.
The kid’s a born MBA.
Another Trump U grad goes west, uhhh north, to make his fortune.
Calvin might have missed the lesson about failing at business, but brand your name and then borrow from the underworld so you can be blackmailed and forever in debt to your foreign masters.
On his way to become a Big Four consultant.
Very bad, Calvin!
Perhaps he could make a deal with the Pentagon. They often think that way.
I see the fur isn’t for keeping you warm, Hobbes…
That’s cable/satellite TVs plan… “people are leaving in droves, so better crank the price up so we can still make a profit.”
Wonder why Hobbes isn’t warm to the idea? :D
If you want to find out just how cold it is, Calvin, charge $5,000 per glass. Oh, and start really early in the morning!
This site is becoming too political.
Just need to re-brand it from “Ice-Cold” to “Eco-Friendly” and it’ll be flying off the shelves…, ehh, sidewalk… Also charge $4.99, people will think they’re getting a better deal…
Isn’t that how car sales work? Charge more, sell less?
It was an eye opener for me that I could make a decent cup of coffee for less than $0.25.
Is this how Howard Schulz got started?
Calvin doesn’t know it, but he’s learning about elasticity of demand, or in this case, the lack thereof.
Tell them about how you’ll include free ice cubes with every glass.
Raise the price to 20 bucks and call it “organic” and give it a French sounding name like Le’mon-d squeeze. That always works.
This winter-themed strip reminded me of a strip about two years ago where Calvin and Hobbes had been playing in the snow and Mom had made hot chocolate with marshmallows in for both Calvin and Hobbes. This could be seen as another sign that she partly believes in Hobbes as was made very obvious when Mom and Dad searched for Hobbes in 1988 and Mom called out for him.
I responded to this strip by mentioning that I used to enjoy hot chocolate with marshmallows but had stopped having marshmallows because I had been advised to cut down on my sugar due to excessive sugar in my bloodstream. I also mentioned that the same medical examination had revealed I have “the blood pressure of a teenager”. Someone replied, “You’d better give it back.”
I’ve had another medical examination this weekend and I’m happy to say that my blood pressure is still very good and that my sugar level has come down very well in the past two years.
It’s probably just Ice now instead of ice cold lemonade.
Headed for Wall Street. Or Madison Avenue anyway.
Pretty soon it’ll be ten dollars a chunk.
He’s on to how Mercedes sells their cars.
sell it for 50¢ …sell the antidote for $10
I’ll always be grateful to the girlfriend who taught me to enjoy an ice cream cone on a cold day. It is so pleasant to enjoy it for half an hour rather than lapping frantically for five minutes.
Calvin has always shown an utter obliviousness to basic economics.
Wants to put all of his beggs in one askit.
He’ll make up the loss by selling hot chocolate in summer.
He could claim his lemonade gives you energy, put it in small cans, charge twice as much as a soda, make millions.
That’s how General Motors did it years ago.
this isn’t the only time Calvin got supply and demand backwards
Switch from lemonade to beer, Calvin.
yup, that’s the joke codycab.
reminds me of the governor of calif.
You sell lemonade when it is cold out?
Calvin, you have a great future in Apple.
“All my savings are in bonds.”
“Fight fire with fire”, so why not “fight cold with cold”?
What’s your favorite comic
i love calvin and hobbes
I wonder what kind of company bonds did Hobbes put his savings. Some may be surely dealing with tuna.
Calvin’s logic in this strip is exactly the same as the company that runs our tolls roads here in Colorado. Most expensive tolls I’ve seen anywhere in the country, but they just keep raising them and wonder why more people don’t use them.
Yeah don’t sell as much.
