And Susie strikes the dagger straight to the heart.
I love how she has failed to be grossed out.
Think she’s pretty used to him by now.
You mean other than Hobbes?
Susie NEEDS to try this on Calvin at some point.
Calvin has a certain amount of pathos. He has no social life, no real friends. He never plays games with any other kids. It’s rather sad, really.
I don’t want to know what he comes up with for dessert.
Wait – is that a Twinkie?
I used to like to gross out friends when we ate lunch in school. Whenever the hot lunch served noodles, I’d say they were serving tapeworms (sorry, but they really DID resemble tapeworms). And when I was munching on Fritos, I’d point out the little black specks in the chips and I’d say that the specks were mouse turds. Them I’d say, “Mmmmm. mouse turds!” I do sometimes wonder though what exactly those black specks really are. Not mouse turds, I hope!
Calvin wouldn’t know how to act with a human friend.
Calvin is actually the kind of kid I would have went out of my way to become friends with when I was six!
Why does Susie sit with him?
I bet Calvin and Lio would get along famously!
But they’re nourishing bugs.
It might taste good with plenty of salt.
she can see thru you, Calvin :D
I noticed from the above comments that Calvin brings out the child in all of us. Good job Mr. Watterson.
If Calvin has any real friends, it’ll probably be The Munsters or the Addams Family.
I have yet to meet a six- or seven-year-old boy who would be put off by Calvin’s concept here…
He’s got Hobbes, and sometimes even Hobbes is just a fair-weather friend.
If Suzie moved to another table Calvin would probably just follow her anyway.
He has one friend, and since tigers eat big hairy caterpillars by the truckload, this isn’t an issue.
When I was a youngster, my Mother and I would sometimes eat at a Chinese restaurant with my Grandmother who was born in 1884. Grandma always insisted that the soy sauce was bug juice and would not put it on her food. My family has called it that ever since.
Ewww that’s really gross
