    $20 to be Calvin’s friend doesn’t sound like a wise investment.

    Let me guess. Calvin forgot about show-and-tell until Susie reminded him on the way to the bus.

    Self-promotion. Check.

    Narcissism. Check.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
