    I can't even begin to imagine what a Statler icon would look like. Maybe a smiley punching itself itself in the face repeatedly while wearing a vacant expression...?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    That's ing amazing. you.

    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'm gonna google why he called them Calvin and Hobbes, though. You've piqued my curiosity...
    Calvin was named for John Calvin, he of Calvinism, a religious philosopher who believed in predestination (whose philosophy was popular with early American settlers). Hobbes was named for Thomas Hobbes, also a philosopher, he of the notoriously dim view of human nature.

    A typical Hobbes quote:

    "The condition of man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone."

    Agreed completely. That's why I made my buddy take me to this BBQ. I couldn't pass on the chance to meet the guy. He is the reason I have so little patience for these modern comic strips. It's almost not fair to them that Watterson set the bar so high.

    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...

    Apparently it's in storage and not easily accessible, but I swear he has it. It was a drawing of Calvin holding a box and said something along the lines of "we're moving, come to our BBQ". Probably worth a fortune to the right people. He wouldn't ever sell it, though...

    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.
