Sad when your own Mom is suspicious of you.
How hard would it be to just say Susie hit you unprovoked instead of blurting out that you were planning on hitting her?
hang in there, calvin
Calvin wishes he could get paid to be good.
“Why did Susie hit you with a snowball?” Undoubtely mom knows her chicken .
This explains why Calvin always has coal for the eyes of the snowmen he builds.
You’ll never make it in3 years!!!
Being good is sometimes difficult.
Is he as bad as Cartman? In “Red Sleigh Down,” he was told: “if you cure cancer and AIDS next week, you would still owe two presents.”
We have a saying, “The devil knows more because he’s old, than because he’s the devil.” Same goes for Santa, Calvin—you ain’t foolin’ nobody.
You ain’t going to get out on parole Calvin, you’re in for the full stretch……….
Calvin obviously doesn’t believe in being “good for goodness’ sake”.
I wonder if any parents actually punish bad behavior by not giving their children any presents. I’ve never heard of that happening in real life.
There days? How about even three MINUTES?
Hobbs’ last statement is reflective of many people’s concept of morality: God is a bookkeeper: as long as you do enough good deeds, you can do as many equal and opposite bad deeds minus one. The objective is to have a positive balance and you go to heaven. If you are overdrawn then to hell with you.
Some people even carry this over to personal relationships. I really pissed off the old lady by staying out late with the boys and coming home drunk. I’ll buy her some flowers and we’ll be even.
“Its absurd to believe that we might deserve anything as if its balanced in the end, and the good guys always win” Jack Johnson
“Susie overheard Hobbes plotting to hit her with a snowball, I guess she was aiming at him, missed, and hit me instead.”
He’s got himself in quite a fix. Stay in bed for the whole week.
I’m not sure lying always counts as a Santa sin. I mean really ….SANTA. You know what I mean.
Calvin started by embroidering the truth and wrongfully implementing Hobbes and then turned it into an outright lie against Susie. He and Hobbes weren’t plotting anything this time – it was one of the rare times when Hobbes was genuinely trying to talk Calvin out of doing something bad. There are other times when Hobbes really has led Calvin into temptation.
“Hobbes, this whole pretending-to-be-a-decent-person thing is exhausting!”
Oh what a tangled web we weave…
gotta love Calvin – he’s a dedicated little monster even with Hobbes as his conscience
Isn’t Santa just a materialistic surrogate for God?
This reminds me of Dennis the Menace raiding the cookie jar with his best friend: “Relax, Joey. I’ll let ya know when it’s time to start being good for Santa Claus.”
Originally printed in newspapers on December 22, 1990, hence the “three more days” line.
Now you understand Tя☭mpski, and he has 32 days!
Calvin, you can’t win, you can’t break even, and you can’t get out of the game.
Calvin, just tell her the truth.
poor insane little maniac, everyone is suspicious of them.
“Under pressure” from Queen comes to mind.
I love Calvin’s expression and pose in the last panel.
“I’m gettin nuttin for Christmas . . . "
Don’t worry, Calvin, we’re all vicious little monkeys.
what if watterson made one about covid-19 and calvin’s mom tell him to put on a mask to go in the store
