    The planet, anchor, rope, and ship are all made of “can take any stress” Unobtanium".

    And the two planets on colliding, they fragment into 11 asteroids.

    That’s a pretty unusual thing to do for a space hero.

    “Hurling toward Planet 5?” There were a few parties in my distant past where I felt like that.

    Boy, it’s sure taking a long, convoluted process to add 6+5. Susie may win the bet after all.

    The answer is to turn the accelerator up to 11.

    This system is right next to Duck Dodger’s Planets A through X. Maybe Spiff can find some Eludium Phosdex, the Shaving Cream molecule.

    Sometimes the incongruities in Calvin and Hobbes are a riot unto themselves. That Spaceman Spiff would keep an 18th century iron boat anchor on board his high-tech space vessel is just too much fun for words.

    In the words of Khan Noonien Singh…

    “THIS IS Planet FIVE! Planet Six exploded six months after you towed it here!”

    For being just a simple daily strip the art work is awesome, the anchor, the knot on the rope, the rubble where the anchor dug in, every panel is from a different perspective. The art work almost tells the story without the words.

    Sometime, in the not too distant future, a customer is waiting for Calvin to make change. He has no idea what machinations are required and tells him to keep the change. 20 years later Calvin is rich from all the change he has kept. Life is funny that way.

    Maybe it’s just cartoon physics. But Planet 5 seems to be larger than Planet 6. This is after all the Mysterio planetary system.

    Like I said before, Calvin puts so much energy into his overactive imagination instead trying to figure out a simple math equation! But I guess that’s what makes Calvin, Calvin.

    I like the line about how Spaceman Spiff “downshifts and guns the motor”! Yep, those old 4-speed spacecraft could really haul the mail!

    Impercetabily seems an interesting word rarely used. Apart from arithmetic this comic strip also enriches our vocab. Kudos to BW.

    Another thought on my part … perhaps Spaceman Spiff needs an overthruster and help from the black lectroids.
