I was very shocked by this cartoon at first but after reviewing it, I think Ted might be commenting on social distancing especially during thecorona virus. We see the first five characters apparently nonchalantly watching Blake’s Zoom feed from their own computers, either unable or uninterested in stopping what is about to occur but willing to join Blake’s invitation.
Ironically, Susie Derkins is probably way off on the other side of the playground, sitting on the seesaw, just hoping that “stupid jerk Calvin” would join her.
Calvin’s Charlie Brown moment
RERUN WINS THE STANLEY CUP!!!!
Reminds me of the Peanuts cartoon where Linus is offered a chocolate from a box by Lucy and he goes out of his way to specifically NOT choose coconut but…
Makes you wonder why Mom buys it for Calvin in the first place. I suppose with Calvin, it’s easier to give in rather than hearing “Gimme, gimme, gimme! Buy me, buy me, buy me! Get, get, get!” every food shopping trip.
And at this very moment, we have a viral contamination with people being told not to congregate and to stay inside if possible. That works well if you have a house or regular shelter of some type. But what if you’re homeless and living on the street, dependent on social care services to survive. Already existing with virtually nothing and then told “it’s best if you stay away”.
All the instructions said were letters from interested parties but no mention if they had to be human, so why doesn’t Snoopy ask Woodstock for a letter of recommendation?
And now it’s “But I don’t have a pre-existing condition that limits or denies coverage!”
Even worse than everyone complaining the dinner would be hypocritical and should be cancelled is they’re doing within earshot of poor ol’ Charlie Brown.
