No stains on the side of the house?
It actually takes 1.6 gallons of water to flush. True story.
Did Calvin make a sheet rope in order to get to the outside plants?
What kind of voice did you always picture Calvin’s monsters having?
The slimy texture of the word bubbles always made me picture them having slimy voices.
I’d have thought the plants were well fertilized
Tinkle, tinkle little star
You may have lost some plants, but you kept a son.
Dad, look up to his window; notice the discoloration, and bubbling and peeling paint!!!
I didn’t know monsters were smart enough to think of such a cunning plan.
I don’t understand. The first synthetic fertilizer came from urea. Maybe Calvin’s overwatering them?
Nonsense! Urine is great for plants because of the nitrogen.
Mom and Dad are SO clueless!!
The first Calvin and Hobbes strip that I read was a Monsters In The Bedroom strip back in November 1987.
Would like to know the brand of paint that would stand up to something that will kill plants almost on contact.
So Calvin has two moms…his regular mom and Necessity, the mother of invention!
The soil pH is now too low.
Maybe this strip inspired the mud flaps.
Well, sometimes even nature doesn’t appreciate natural acts.
No one else has said it yet, so I will…“EWWWWWW…..!”
It’s true, Hobbes. They stop at nothing.
‘’That smell? …. Musta been a tom cat.’’
I bet that little whipper snapper can clear a 4 strand barbed wire fence with that shooter! Ah youth!
How was Watterson able to get away with this one?
Did Hobbes give Calvin a boost so he could reach the window?
Too much nitrogen fertilizer?
Oh, I don’t know. My grass is greener where my dog pees.
I recall as a young child being embarrassed when I made a connection with where I, and others.. piddled against a brick wall and created a stain. T’was always a challenge to see how high you could go.
LOL… typical little boy. Love Hobbes…
I am LOLing!!
Probably my favourite monster-under-the-bed strip.
As any country boy can tell you, if you can’t pee off the back porch, it’s not home.
(Yes, I did so when living on the 3rd floor of an apartment building in Lakeview, the most densely populated neighborhood in Chicago (and no, it most certainly is not called “Wrigleyville”; there is no such place!!!)
He should threaten to pee on the monsters. That will shut them up quick.
Risks of course his parents complaining about the funny smells coming from under his bed…
Nice tribute to Calvin and Hobbes in today’s Liberty Meadows:
I remember in my high school senior English class, a couple of my classmates would make water dripping noises to try and get me (and maybe a couple others) to have to go to the restroom. It didn’t help that most of the school’s restrooms were extremely dirty and smelly, and could make me practically sick.
Accurate moon phase for the early morning today!
Calvins pee is so full of sugar from the cereal he eats the Hummingbirds will go after his deposit.
Rain drops keep falling on my head!
Recurrent psychosis can be a material as well as mental issue.
I would have thought that some plants would do very well.
I can relate. I had to go downstairs in our old farmhouse to use the toilet. Much easier to “go” out the window, which did not have a screen. One day my mother noticed a brown spot in the grass. No punishment, just a good scolding. The grass soon recovered.
I just read an article about how farmers in some developing nations have started using human urine to fertilize so I guess Bill did not do his research ;)
