    Calvin, you may know what people need; you don’t know what they want.

    (Yeah, I ripped off Dylan)

    Hobbes should buy one just to make Calvin feel better.

    Speaking of swift kicks, the long-running controversy has finally been settled. Women have long contended that the worst pain in the world is childbirth, while men have always held it to be a kick in the nuts. But think about it. Half a year after giving birth, many women are speculating about wanting another baby, but you’ve never ever heard a guy say “Gee, I think I’d like another kick in the nuts.”

    Who’s on the kicking end and who’s on the receiving end? I think the person spending the dollar gets to decide

    But nobody wants it! Perhaps you must sell " When you don’t want a kick, pay 1 $."

    Let me give you some financial advice, Calvin. All you have to do is change the sign to read “Give me a swift kick in the butt for one dollar.” You’ll make lots of money. You might even be able to up the price to two or three dollars.

    Makes me wonder if ‘Calvin’ is somehow related to ‘Bucky Katt’ in ‘Get Fuzzy’. They both seem to have the same personality—rampant egotism !! ! ! !

    I believe in the muleskinner’s approach to management: you have to know all about @$$es.

    Which one to sit on and when to get off it.

    Which ones to pinch.

    Which ones to kick.

    Which ones to kiss

    But most importantly, which one to call “boss.”

    Oh, I’m sure there’s a market for a little derriere abuse today. In fact, I just watched an episode of “Castle” where women get paid lots of money for such services. The world has only gotten weirder since ’92!

    Try reverse psychology. “A kind word for a dollar.” Of course you might run up against church interests there, but it’s worth it.

    During recess one year boys were singing “one two three kick in the rear we are good old pals.” The group went up to a boy kicked him, then he joined the group to kick another kid. (Only one kid did the kicking. That phrase doesn’t show up on google.)
