Calvin and Hobbes is one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century, in my view. Right up there with the greatest pieces of music, greatest movies, greatest literature and greatest architecture. People look down on it because it's a cartoon, but that's honestly their loss. It's a treasure of the imagination.
Like MoFins, I won't buy any unlicensed Calvin and Hobbes stuff out of respect, though I was once greatly tempted to buy a hand made Hobbes doll as a gift for my brother.
I kept the link:
A typical Hobbes quote:
"The condition of man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone."
My buddy still has the hand-made invitations he gave out. I'll see if he'll take a picture of it and send it to me. If so I'll post it here for you guys...
Shhhhh...don't ruin it for him ya ing wanker
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
I just gave myself a huge pat on the back for already knowing why he chose the names Calvin and Hobbes before I opened this page.
But when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was, "Stannis! Stannis! Stannis!"
Been bedridden the past two days because of some ridiculous pain in my hip (I've had broken bones, this is way worse). Went to the hospital this morning; apparently I have tendinitis or a slight tear in the tendon in my left hip.
On the bright side, I got a scrip for percocet.
