$20 to be Calvin’s friend doesn’t sound like a wise investment.
Wait until what Calvin? When you’re thrown in a mental hospital? Buddy, we’re STILL waiting!
You guys sure you didn’t elect Calvin for president 4 years ago?
This is the same kid who complains about Moe bullying him.
Calvin the extortionist?
Thi is the “Spirit of Capitalism” , pretending Max Weber agrees with Calvin .
Let me guess. Calvin forgot about show-and-tell until Susie reminded him on the way to the bus.
Selling influence. Check
Making things up. Check.
Mean towards anyone who disagrees with him. Check.
Sees money as the solution to everything. Check.
Has a best friend. Nope.
Sometimes I think Calvin was the role model for a certain DJT. But that DJT is so much worse.
Salesmanship taken a bit far.
I can hear Hobbes telling him not to do this.
Should have quit while he was ahead…
with friends like him, who needs enemies?
I dunno Calvin, they won’t accept the science!
The Calvinosaurus had problems social networking too!
The Calvinasaurus, another one trying to put the bite on people……
“I shortly will be publishing…”
A big difference between this comic and Wallace the Brave is that here, the adults have very little sense of humour. Every once in a while, Calvin’s parents (especially his dad) will show some levity, but not very often. As someone who taught for 30 years, I’d like to think I would have found this hilarious.
Cheap at twice the price. I’ve been his friend for over thirty years. Hobbes for free.
$20?! That’s around $50 in today’s play money!
We see a rare character other than the usual cast.
So Doctor Evil was a paleontologist? Who knew?
Well, Calvin was off to a good, even great, start… It’s sad that no one seems to be impressed with his (cracked, perhaps) genius.
So it came to pass the “Calvin Militia” did not seed and the world was safe. Well, not safe, but safer until came the days of Zukerberg(sic). God save us.
this reminds me of the time I was able to make kid’s in my second grade class pay me four dollars if I made then a paper airplane long story short they actually bought it I made eight dollars
Your Principal lets you sit? We had to stand until he got down the paddle, back in 1950 when I started school.
Women on the internet charge way more than that to be freinds. Or so I’ve heard.
Where is the reader that goes by the moniker ‘The Calvinosaurus that Calvin wanted to discover’? I finally know where his pseudonym came from! Hooray!
Suddenly I get the feeling that Sheldon Cooper was partly based on Calvin…
Calvin has courage I could only dream of in school.
This whole strip reeks of someone who just lost another election.
I can seriously hear the hey! in Panel 2.
Calvin is in grade school, yet has the language skills of an English Professor. Curious.
When a bit older than Calvin, I read Roy Chapman Andrews’ “All About Strange Beasts of the Past” and wanted to be a palentologist. But I didn’t quite veer into the rest of Calvin’s fantasy.
Mr. Gates, Mr. Bezos, Mr. Zuckerberg, and Mr. Musk shoulda been classmates.
I’d give as much as $30 to remain a distant acquaintance.
I remember sifting through driveway gravel looking for fossils… A shame I wasn’t as ambitious as Calvin.
The birth of ‘crowdsourcing’ perhaps? And it would appear that the budget cuts that else eliminated public school district psychiatrists came sooner than we thought.
“Okay, Mr. Principal, for YOU I’ll discount the fee to $15! And if you act now, I’ll include this… uhm… used kleenex, absolutely free!”
If you give me $20. I’ll be your friend.
Did Calvin rehearse his entire Show and Tell presentation or something?
Yes, tell and show – who you are.
For those who may have reservations about the concept of evolution, check out the evolution of Calvin’s presentation. First it is factual, then speculative, then goes over the top, then self-aggrandizing, then vituperative, then greedy.
There was a real world equivalent in this very theme: check out the bitter rivalry of The Bone Wars https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bone_Wars
calvin grows up to be==bill gates, steve jobs, elon musk. was the 20 a worthwhile investment. “from the tiny acorn comes great oaks”
Just you wait, Henry Higgins (or Just you wait, ’enry ’iggins) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwNKyTktDIE
Sort of reminds me of those that signed up for Tяцmp University.
Sooooo, when did Calvin change his name to Donald?
Friends or Minions?
Calvin if you want to find fossils you need to look in the creek, not the front yard. I’ve found lots of fossils in streams and rivers near by.
To quote a later strip – “If your friends are contractual you don’t have any.”
Ooh! A normal new kid!
better than contributing to Captain Chaos’s recount fund
I love it when the principal makes that face!
I just wonder if Calvin really expected to get away with this. Especially passing off gravel as bones.
Mark Zuckerberg: the early years.
I bet Calvin grew up to be one of those infomercial spokespeople who appear on TV at 3am to take advantage of gullible people with skin conditions and poor cooking skills.
