    Calvin doing his best Wile E. Coyote impression in Panel 2. Similar outcome too.

    Susie is such a hot ticket. She ALWAYS comes out on top.

    Cosby did this, about 85 years ago… remember “Junior Barnes”? Still funny, and Calvin recreates it well…

    Random Thoughts

    It’s good that Susie knows how to recycle.

    “He or she who has better aim, wins.” (Battle of Jutland, WW 1, comes to mind)

    “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

    Susie has quite the underbite (panel 9).

    “When life hands you a bunch of lemons (pile of snow), make lemonade (a snowball).”

    Susie threw a comet, also known as a dirty snowball.

    Calvin certainly deserves this and he should enjoy the cold in July.

    I must try that once, saving a snowball in the freezer, good idea!

    I did save a snow ball in the freezer (back in the late 60’s) and did I get in trouble when I hit a girl with it in July. That ice ball really hurt.

    I’m impressed that Susie can create a larger snowball after scoping up Calvin’s left overs.

    This is my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strip. I actually tried to save a snowball in our freezer when I was a kid, but it turned into a giant ice ball by the time summer came around, so it was unsafe to throw at anyone.

    I wish they still made Calvin and Hobbes strips. It is the best comic, ever.

    I am heartened by the fact that Calvin can recognize irony when he sees it. It bodes well for him as an adult.

    I wouldn’t mind having a snowball thrown at me right now. It is so hot here. I’m practically dripping with sweat!

    I hate summer with a passion!

    I know this is completely unrelated to Calvin and Hobbes, but my brother and I aren’t the only people in the world who gave our toys REAL personalities, right?

    This is why you should never say “you throw like a girl.”

    This is why you freeze 250 snowballs instead of 1 snowball, Calvin.

    Would a snowball saved in the fridge be softer and safer?
