Calvin should bear his new name proudly. He earned it.
Calvin the Mud!
“Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Mud.”
“And remember: Mud spelled backwoids is Dumb!”
hah! Did Calvin just get kneecapped?!?
The mud outside is alot cleaner than this mud.
My favorite comic strip is Mud & Hobbes
This was the last episode before Bill Watterson took a year-long hiatus.
I thought sure there would be stars emanating from his backside. Dad let him off easy.
He showed you, Calvin! ;D
Does that make Susie “Mudd’s Women”?
My father liked to say to me when I was young (and eager to please):
“Anyone who calls you a mug is no fool”“Yes Dad!”
And what point is that?
I love Calvin the Bold’s excitedly running in when he hears his proper name called, lol. Like you can tell how pleased he is that someone finally used it.
So his full proper name is then, Sir Calvin the Bold and Muddy?
Just remember, Mud spelled backwards is “dum” – Bugs Bunny
Dad should have used a toilet plunger as his Royal Scepter.
“That’s Sir Mud to you.”
The late Keith Green used to remark that whenever someone in the Bible encountered God, their name changed: Simon to Peter, Saul to Paul… Judas to mud.
Dad is vested with finite patience. I guess that means it is limited.
From Samuel Mudd, who was convicted was convicted of conspiring with and aiding John Wilkes Booth before and after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Well played, Dad. One of his few good moments.
Since when was dad king..
Of all the dubbed names I would probably give, “anyone” the Bold, mud is pretty tame.
Calvin, remember that Dad is a Lawyer…
That certainly soiled, er spoiled his plans!
As Bugs pointed out, mud spelled backwards is…
Sir Calvin the mud…I could get used to this.
Dad put an Uno reverse card on the table xd
Dad got him good this time.
Mr. Foot Ruler took care of that.
Watterson…you are Soooo good….funny and dripping with irony….perfect. Thanks.
Good one Dad. Showing the stupidity of picking your own nickname.
One of my elementary school teachers said the expression is “Your name is Mudd”, after the doctor who treated John Wilkes Booth after the assassination of President Lincoln. The Wikipdedia article about Samuel Mudd disputes that, saying the expression with on “d” existed at least 10 years before Samuel Mudd was born.
Mudd, Harry Mudd
Yeah, but Sir Mud.
Once again, he can dish it out, but he can’t take it.
What cracks me up is when Dad says “By the finite patience vested in me…” It’s just a classy way of saying “Because I’ve had enough of your BLEEP….”
“My name is Mud?!”
Not to be confused with Bill or Jack or Pete or Dennis.
Calvin the great, not the mud!!
Dad wanted to call him “Calvin the Sold”, but no-one was interested… ㋡
You should be able to spin that into Harcourt Fenton “Harry” Mudd.
konjiki approves of this denouement…
Should have two "d"’s. Mudd.
Mr. Subtley and his son Mud!
Right on, Dad!
Then there’s Millicent Mehitabel Mudd, who’s about as much of a menace.
I see similar wit. Must be Gene.
My wife’s an earth sign, I’m a water sign. Together we made mud.

Calvin! Prepare To be splashed on!!
Lol, another line that slipped by me as a kid: “by the finite patience vested in me”
My name is Mud!
Not to be confused with Jack or Bill or Pete or Dennis
My name is Mud and it’s always been!
“I love loopholes!”
Insert primus joke here
