  1. about 10 hours ago on Calvin and Hobbes

    People who shout the most about being the defenders of freedom are hardly the ones I’d trust to defend it.

    I’d have to rewatch it, but I’m pretty sure that Aragorn tossed him, not Legolas. Earlier in the movie, he had remarked that “nobody tosses a dwarf!” so there was an element of swallowing his pride.

    Back to Zonker, I do remember that his tanning gig was once broadcast on national television. It was probably supposed to be a real show that I am not familiar with. That’s where the “toothpick between the toes” came from. Anyway, he was shocked when he realised that it was played for laughs.

    Maybe he figures that Hobbes counts as an accompanying guardian.

    However, they’re making a big deal out of “Mars Maid” who’s apparently a new addition to the strip, and therefore can’t be in a compilation of old strips. Maybe the book contains one original storyline with the character.

    I thought Tracy didn’t want to be involved. I mean, everybody must know that the strip is a spoof of him.

    I still got meals the last time I was on a transatlantic flight. Of course, for obvious reasons, that was a year and a half ago. I’m not sure what the minimum flight time would be.

    It used to be common. I remember that in the Norwegian State Railways the toilets were closed until departure, and we were strongly requested not to use them within the station area. Eventually, after lots of complaints from people who lived near the tracks, they took another step to make it less gross.

    They switched to green toilet paper. :-D

    I think it was in the 90s or so that they switched to cars with an enclosed system.

    I remember that NASA kept having trouble with the zero g toilet in the space shuttle.

    You’ve got way too many unicorns in your life as it is, eh?

    Well, this first strip is well entrenched in comic book history. Not so much the last, which presumably was the one yesterday, but which I didn’t even realise was the last. At the time, I thought Aaron just took a break while working on the cartoon, but the cartoon is long finished, and even longer since Aaron was involved with it.

    Well, I guess that being pregnant is an obvious thing she would want to tell him on his deathbed.

    Actually, something similar happened in my family. My father was hospitalised 13 years ago, and we were afraid that he wouldn’t live. My sister took a private moment to tell him that she was pregnant, something she didn’t tell the rest of us until a month later. Well, he lived, he’s still with us, and has taken an effort being a grandfather.
