    Default Calvin & Hobbes

    My take is that if you poke someone with a sharp stick they'll get annoyed, if you smile and shake their hand they will be your friends.

    all us old guys love Calvin and Hobbs
    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
    Personal failures are too important to be trusted to others.

    I once called attention to the similarity between my granddaughter and Calvin...

    Her father paused, thought, and then said, "Nope. Not comparable. We don't get snow in Alabama."

    True classics, I really enjoy them, and notice the resemblance between myself and Calvin more often than I'd admit to my parents.

    Like Calvin and Hobbes, some people have way too much time and creativity:
