Seems like Calvin’s house might have a pest problem.
Is that a crazed rodent with cold feet running loose in your pants or are you just happy to see me?
There was a family story about a mouse running up my grandfather’s pants leg. Sadly he died before I was born, so I will never know if it actually happened. Those who loved to tell the tale, well…their relationship with the truth was never a close one.
I felt a tickle on my leg once and pulled up my pants to investigate. Saw a flicking reptile tail and in a snake panic grabbed a handful of the pants leg. Slowly I worked my hand up and dramatically flung away a three inch desert lizard. My buddy at the ranch rolled over laughing. There is no mistaking a rattler and that is about the only thing tickling your leg that should worry you. Other than the boss’s daughter that is.
I have no memory of this strip. :D
The 2nd and 3rd panel are a riot!
Hobbes is a naturist. A natural being and a naturist.
He was shown wearing “Mickey Mouse pants” in a strip which first appeared in 1986 and was reprinted in 1991 during the first of Bill Watterson’s two sabbaticals before he decided to finish this marvellous comic strip while it was still at a very high level of achievement.
Now it is another reason to use virtual currency.
I’m pretty sure that one time there was a guy who had three pennies.
A trouser mouse? ;9
Hobbes makes a valid point.
It’s an idea, Hobbes, unfortunately other people won’t see it the same way!
Hmmm I hate when that happens, Calvin!
Have you tried a kilt, Calvin?
Tigers are very efficient dressers
I had a similar experience a week ago. Ever had a softener sheet stick inside of your trousers? And you become aware of it, as you’re walking around the market?
As the squirrel made laps inside her dressShe began to cry and then to confess to sins that would make a sailor blush with shameShe told of gossip and church dissension but the thing that got the most attentionWas when she talked about her love lifeAnd then she started naming names!
Had a mouse run up my pants once. I was stomping down the garbage in the can and disturbed its lunch.
He is walking in high grass.
LOL…Hobbes is a treat.
If you’re not wearing pants, the crazed rodents with cold feet can get into some really uncomfortable places.
I have seen this one recently.
“Crazed rodent with cold feet”? That’s so wrong. Rodents are mammal, and should have warm feet. Either turn up the thermostat or knit the poor dears some little booties!
This may be why women wear those horrific jeggings – there is no room left for a crazed rodent with cold feet to run around.
Another reason people want to get rid of pennies.
Is that a mouse in your pocket or have you got your pants on sideways?
They must have an infestation of those kinds of insects in Scotland!
I know what that feels like. While not a rodent, I remember one day in summer 2004 (when I was 15 1/2) and a male gypsy moth got into my shirt and was fluttering around inside, leading to the same feeling as the second panel.
If you never know, then does it matter to you at all…? ;-)
Nothing to say. . . .I just laughed.
Great team-up album, “Running Loose in Your Pants”, from Crazed Rodent and Cold Feet.
I, for one, never wear crazed rodents.
There’s squirrels in my pants, there’s squirrels in my pants!
Crazed Rodent and Cold Feet was the follow up song to Cream’s Pressed Rat and Warthog, fyi
Kilt on Hobbes.
Watch the video for The Mississippi Squirrel Revival by Ray Stevens.
Easy for you to say, Hobbes.
My neighbours’ kid was over and I had to explain what a penny was.
