Snoopy has an interesting fantasy life…
Yep…the ants ARE the pay!
That is one frighteningly persistent (i.e., obsessed) dog! :-o
That’s when you just WANT to catch a whuppin’!
“This is clearly an important species we’re dealing with here, and I don’t think you or I or anybody has the right to arbitrarily exterminate them.” – Burke
“I’ll get my worksheet done when I get it done.” I sure hope he doesn’t think that will translate into “I’ll get my work done when I get it done” when he enters the workforce, unless he wants to be unemployed. Even if he starts his own business, his products or services will have to be of good quality and on time or he won’t have a business for long. And I am definitely NOT among those who think this strip would be boring without Caulfield. In fact, I find Caulfield’s constant “rebel without a cause” attitude boring and tiresome.
I based my comment on my interactions with children during my 30+ years in the preschool-daycare business, where I taught kids ages 2-12. Their words and actions reveal their thought processes. I don’t need to be able to literally read their minds, just as parents don’t need to be able to literally read their children’s minds to know what they’re thinking in many instances.
The fact that Caulfield even asked such a question shows just how much the lines have been blurred. Too many kids don’t get the concept of paying their dues. They think they should have all the rights of adults with none of the responsibilities.
This is an especially poignant strip, even for “Peanuts.”
Gimme a break. The answer to everything is “Moar cowbell!” ;-)
