Apparently, Calvin will be attending parties with people in their 80’s.
I love it! By the way, what happens when you drink too much mead?
And he’ll be the first one to be shown the door!!
I liked that one then again I’m over 80
What smells rotten and puts people to sleep? CALVIN’S ACT!
“Puns are the lowest form of humour”—Samuel Johnson
What do you get when you cross a lab monkey with a very popular legume and a plant with yellow flowers and profuse pollen?
Rhesus peanut buttercup.
Awwww….. Calvin cracked his first Dad Joke, his kids would be teenagers now :)
pun jokes must be hard in verbal form
Simpsons actually did a visual joke of it that one time.
Great joke, but young people wouldn’t get it.
Elon Musk has a brother named Kimball, who is an agronomist. recently he developed a new sort of fruit, with a thin rind and sweet flesh. He was disappointed when he found out that there was already such a thing as a musk melon.
Calvin thought that he was punny…the audience disagreed…
I remember learning in an Anthropology class that, while there are few cultural ‘universals’, Groaning at Puns is among those that exist.
I expect to see this pun on PBS shortly. Are you reading this Pastis?
What do you get when you cross a pig and a lawyer? No one knows. There are some things that a pig won’t do.
Keep trying kid. Live mike night is brutal.
Given that all puns are bad, this one isn’t too bad.
A classic! Apparently I’m eighty years old.
I laughed. (It has already been a long day!)
Don’t forget the Infinite Sadness, Calvin.
[Quite possible that the name of the album was inspired by this strip]
A party of one, Calvin.
Two blondes walk into a building. You would have thought ONE of them would have seen it,,,,,,
The married person’s melon: Honeydew.
Aw, Hobbes, you know that puns are judged by how bad they are. That one is so old, it stinks (very good pun)!
Well, he’s the life of the cartoons page!
Calvin needs to learn that laughing at your own jokes does not make them funny.
I used that joke about the same time as this was originally published. Worse – it was in a sad poem. Those were NOT the “good ’ol days”.
Somewhere, Stephan Pastis is secretly giggling.
Calvin is a little young to be telling Dad Jokes. :)
I once asked the combo to play “mellon-doggie baby”… only the sax player laughed…….. (by cracky, by cranky, by creaky, by croakey)
You are assuming, of course, he will be invited?
Hobbes should pun-ish Calvin for that one.
Hobbes’ face is to die for!
I hate to admit it, but that is rather good.
That is funny…..
It’s a fine pun, but guffawing at your own joke is bad form.
I love Lassie! Love Rough Collies, too. There are actually four different types of Collies. Bearded Collie, Border Collie, Rough Collie, Lassies breed, and Smooth Collie. https://www.akc.org/dog-breeds/collie/. I go to the dog park a lot, and, there is this Collie called Teddy. Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) are like miniature Rough Collies. There is this store near my house. It is called “Just For Fun” and it has party supplies and other stuff like advent calendars. They’re selling the advent calendars now because, after all, it is getting near christmas time. But i’m getting off topic so lets get back. I went there two days ago, and, there were store dogs walking around the place. There was this one Sheltie that I must have made a pretty good impression on, because after that, it started following me all around the store. Fortunately, it was very well trained, so when I left the store, it didn’t follow me out. The store probably doesn’t mind that customers pet the dogs. Thats all for today, folks! From now on, I’ll be leaving comments on future Calvin And Hobbes strips, but don’t worry if you don’t see my comment.
This is so me. I laugh at my own stupid jokes all the time.
You crack me up every time I read your strip, Thanks, it’s my favorite.
A little off topic but I have a cousin who loved Calvin and Hobbes so much the area where he kept his Calvin and Hobbes books had walls lined with comics.
you don’t see that face often on Hobbes ¬_¬
“In my heart, I know I’m funny.”
What would be REAL funny is if Mr. Watterson inadvertently draws a panel featuring both other adults AND Hobbes as a real tiger, not a puny stuffed toy. In any case, Calvin, I love you but don’t quit your day job !!
In a similar situation, Hobbes has asked Calvin straight questions about Calvin’s “ joke”.
Here, I would expect Hobbes to ask how Lassie could impregnate a cantelope.
That is a good joke
