This strip was written when irony was still alive.
I’m still laughing at panel 9. “How d’you DOOOO?”
With an arm like that she could pitch for the Blue Jays
Calvin doing his best Wile E. Coyote impression in Panel 2. Similar outcome too.
Later, when the two of you are married, you’ll look back at this and laugh.
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…
How did he miss from so close?
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!
‘Payback is awesome’ Don’t know who said it but it works here
next year, save two
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.
Hit her at the back, man. Very close. No breeze interfering
Calvin is a righty and Susie is a lefty. Hmmmm opposites do attract…..
One of the few strips I remember in its original showing.
Karma strikes again
Good Lord, that was me when I was six…
I’m impressed that Susie can create a larger snowball after scoping up Calvin’s left overs.
don’t mess with a girls who plays lacrosse…their aim is deadly accurate
Payback is a b#$%^.
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!
There’s the rub with a single shot weapon, you only have one chance.
Bet this was based on a Bill Cosby bit from my childhood.
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?
One of Bill’s best.
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?
Mission failed. We’ll get ’em next time.
