Now Why Would That Be?

Calvin and Hobbes was and still is one of my favorite comic strips, but for some reason I find my perspective on it shifting somewhat lately.


I like the ones better in which the dad just makes stuff up to screw with Calvin's head.

I think you're going to be an oustanding dad. For one thing, you're really good at looking stuff up.

Making stuff up might be a more amusing approach, but it can have problems. I'm thinking I might make fake articles in Wikipedia, then print them out before they get zapped, and then show them to him. That'll learn him to respect traditional reference sources!
