Calvin & Hobbes

Always had been an ardent reader of Calvin and Hobbes strips. And, I love Mid-Day simply for that. They introduced me to the wonderful world of Calvin.

Can't really pinpoint as to why I liked Calvin so much. Maybe, I connected to him at some level :-)

Some Priceless Calvin moments or one-liners,IMHO

"Life is unfair, but how come it's never unfair in my favor?"

"Dad, how come you live in this house with mom, instead of in an apartment with several scantily clad female roommates." (Just love the way Calvin interacts with his Dad and the constant polls with which he constantly bombards his Dad, simply priceless)

"Why should I work for any results? Its almost as if I dont deserve it !" Exactly my thoughts :-)

Calvin sez - "I'm a man of few words"
Then Hobbes says "If you read more, you can increase your vocabulary!"

"Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us."

Mrs Wormwood:Wat state do u live in?
Calvin:Denial ( Just like me )

"I'm at peace with the world. I'm completely serene. I've discovered my purpose in life. I know why I was put here and why everything exists... I am here so everybody can do what I want. Once everybody accepts it, they'll be serene too."

Reality continues to ruin my life :-)

"In the short term , it would make me happy to go play outside.
In the long term, it would make me happier to do well at school and become successful.
But in the very long term, i know what will make better memories"

Mom : Calvin your problem is you have got no common sense.
Calvin : I have got plenty of common sense, I just choose to ignore it

(in the middle of the night)
calvin-do you think love is only a biochemical reaction to make sure our genes get passed on?
mum-whatever it is, it is all that is keeping me from strangling you right now!!
calvin-somehow, mom's midnight reassurances are never reassuring!!!

Test paper: Explain Newton's first law of motion in your own words
Calvin: Some gibberish...
Calvin: "I love loopholes" Simply Jhakaas Stuff....

Guys, Do add some more valuable lines if any :-)
