YANBU, I love them. I use Calvin as my facebook profile picture.

His poor mum would probably be on the drunk thread -every night.

I love Calvin. My baby boy looks just like him (his big sister, unfortunately, thinks just like him...).

I love Calvin and Hobbes. The strip where he ordered a beanie hat with a propellor from the back of a cereal packet was brilliant. The waiting, when he asked his mum if it had arrived yet when they'd only just posted it off.

The disappointment when he realised that having a propellor on your hat didn't mean you could fly.

My DS was was similarly distraught to find that wearing a cape didn't confer super powers.

Calvin and Hobbes is brilliant. Have all the books and wish Bill Watterson would write more and not get grumpy.

It's the best comic strip ever.

I've got all the books. I used to be able to quote hundreds of them.

Faves: The little raccoon.
When Hobbes gives Calvin a hug for Xmas.
Calvin the nudist.
The transmogrifier ("I'm safe!!")
The propeller beanie ("He's not numb....")
Mutated snowmen.
"CALVIN!!! What are you doing to the coffee table?!?!"... "Is this some kind of trick question?" (When he's hammering nails into it)

Just brilliant.

I've got a tattoo of them both dancing on my shoulder. I'd like another in a place more visible to me because they make me smile just thinking about them smile
