They taste pretty good if you put a couple spoonfuls of sugar on them.
But the second mouse gets the cheese.
The late kid would prefer breakfast in bed. Also something really sweet.
Wake me, when it’s over…..
You can find pizza until midnight.
Most kids will eventually get to the rise. But getting to the shine is a whole other ballgame.
We used to call KD ( Kraft Dinner ) worms
I’ve always noticed that the early worm gets the bird. No, no, not THAT bird…
That backwards. The early worm get eaten by the bird.
What mom says has the following anagram, “sweet Mary, red-hot blighter.”
Not backwards at at all,lol :D
I think Calvin put it nicely in one strip (and here I’m paraphrasing): "They make you sleep when you aren’t tired and get you up when you want to sleep some more’.;-D
The early seagull gets the tourist’s discarded boardwalk fries?
So if the early bird gets the worm, why’d the worm get outta bed?
That’s the exact same greeting my mother used on us. :P
Eww, Mom is a pleasant morning person. All pleasant morning people should seek immediate psychiatric help.
When I was a child, it seemed like I closed my eyes, and it was morning.
Never did grasp the concept of that old saying. After a good rain, worms are available all day.
On cold winter mornings, Mom would get us up by reciting “The Cremation of Sam McGee.”
Bleah! You keep the worm. I is going back to sleeps!
In Calvin’s case, wouldn’t that be Rise and Whine?
Calvin looks ready to slither back into his burrow!
Yup. My Feelings exactly. The tardy bird gets the crumbs. You decide.
Love the dialogues between mother and kid.
But it’s the “second mouse” who gets the cheese !
“But mom, if the worm stayed in bed, the bird would be out of luck.”
Our Mum was more succinct … ‘’GET UP!’’
Should tell Calvin day of fun activities.
The late bird orders pizza.
I had a girlfriend who woke up early, believing that should be true.
I’m betting Calvin is sleepy because he was up half the night doing something like watching forbidden television.
If the Early Bird got the Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs, we might see a different result.
Early bird gets the worm. Second mouse gets the cheese!
In my fraternity days, on one of those cold damp days when the night crawlers come out we had spaghetti for lunch. One guy got served a plate with worms under his noodles. I, as a pledge, got to clean up and paint the dining room.
Recommendation for a great career move: Retire! I can stay up as late as I want and get up whenever I want, and there’s no mom to tell me I’m doing it wrong. (My wife occasionally stands in for her, tho.)
Did I say “worm?” I meant ‘Gummi Worm!’
But the early worm gets eaten.
Say, I never know the good part of being early. You just miss out on some valuable sleeptime.
Calvin’s no Charles V, who insisted on a Diet of Worms.
Aw come on Calvin, you pretend to have much worse on your sandwich. when you trying to gross out Susie ,at lunch.
Calvin channels his inner Bill the Cat.
Early worm gets eaten.
Not if the worm stays in bed.
Who Weeps for the early worm?
The early bird can have the worm, because neither mornings nor worms are pleasant.
