Don’t forget the fries.
After 17 days of not commenting, what I can say is: Is it McD’s?
“Listen Calvin. We’re in the middle of nowhere. No witnesses, get it? Shut…up…!
Of course, it’s perfectly possible to pick a restaurant that serves nicer food and still has burgers…
Here in Southern China, it’s McDonalds, KFC and the local Chinese fast food restaurant at the rest stops.
I had turkey burger meatloaf yesterday. Turkey burger + stovetop bread things and some other stuff. Was very very good.
Look at mom. She is totally unperturbed.
Great vacation start. Take a valium, dad.
Ou are what you eat Calvin. Besides, don’t you get tired of the same food? I thought children loved to experiment new things… well, except when it comes to movies.
Happy 58th birthday to the amazing Bill Watterson today. Thank you Mr. Watterson, for creating the comic strip that we all love, and may your day be unlike the kind of tediousness that Calvin’s family’s road trip is right now.
I’m with those who commiserate with Mom. Surrounded by high volume, demanding males.
Hey dad, 1) you need to be smarter than the kid. 2) you’re a candidate for a heart attack with your rage issues. wonder what mom is thinking?
5th July, happy birthiversary William “Bill” Boyd Watterson II (1958)!
When I was a kid it was fried chicken, not burgers.
Nice places have burgers with glitzy side orders.
Wow! Bill Watterson and I share the same birthday! That’s awesome!
Pretty impressive if a six year old can sing “nine million nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall” and keep that countdown going for any length of time. I bet he’d get tired of that pretty quick. :D
I wonder if Dad forgot the paddle.
“TEN MILLION BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL,TEN MILLION BOTTLES OF BEER;IF ONE OF THOSE BOTTLES SHOULD HAPPEN TO FALL,9,999,999 BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL!PUT A NEW BOTTLE IN-N-N…TEN MILLION BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL,TEN MILLION BOTTLES OF BEER;IF ONE OF THOSE BOTTLES SHOULD HAPPEN TO FALL,9,999,999 BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL!PUT A NEW BOTTLE IN-N-N…TEN MILLION BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL,TEN MILLION BOTTLES OF BEER…”YAAAGH!!! I’m sure Grateful to still be Single!Never been in any serious relationship, no car, no wife, no kids, etc.
Jesus! Stop at a restaurant that has a variety of things and the little demon can have his burger and you can have something else! Find an Applebee’s or something. Better yet, if there’s a Big Boy restaurant, stop there. I haven’t eaten at a Big Boy in a long time. But whenever I do, I have to get that hot fudge ice cream cake.
Hey Dad; just put bacon on it, everything is better with bacon
That’s it! duct-tape the kid to the roof of the car!
And yet parents have the nerve to tell their kids off for whining?
They want to take a good look at themselves.
they should have brought the duct tape on this trip
It might be worth the insanity, to have Calvin go through counting backwards from 10 million, just to see if he could do it. I bet Calvin won’t pull that one again.
No wife, no kids, is how I can afford the car!Well, I don’t drive (too scary, too dangerous!); and so I wouldn’t even be able to use a car. But then here in San Francisco, I wouldn’t really need one anyway! It also gives me a lot more freedoms that most people can only dream about! Oh, and I’m 55, by the way.
I’m beginning to think Calvin may not be the perfect child .
Most restaurants have hamburgers, in addition to other fare. And even back then, most hamburger joints offered chicken and/or fish sandwiches.
If I was Mom, I’d take the rest of the trip alone.
I went to Fuddruckers last night! :)
Hmmm, 10 million bottles of beer. Hey, there’s a Flannigan’s, great burgers and plenty of beer… and a hotel right next door.
Be grateful Calvin isn’t demanding expensive items from the adult menu.
