I can't believe this...

Post by wh..sh » Mon Dec 05, 2011 8:37 am

On eplaya - the land of wise, witty, and whammies - I still haven't come across a single "Calvin and Hobbes" reference.

So, I shall take it upon myself to inflict you all with as many C&H reference as possible. You are welcome.

Fun idea! But take a look at the pixel width of the strip. On my screen the fourth frame gets cut off in the middle. I'm using 1024 x 768 resolution.

I love Calvin and Hobbs and have to say it's one of the best cartoons of my life.
But, I'm guessing here, perhaps C&H (oh crap, got that jingle in my head now...) simply are too pure to bastardize and those who like it best like it for its celebration of the individual creation, not cut, photoshop, paste that so much of our popular culture lends itself to so cheaply.
But comic strips aren't big out there. Doonesbury? Dilbert? Far Side? Peanuts? Ziggy? Family Circus? Wee Pals?
Anyway, I'm sticking by my first answer--we are all Calvin on the playa.

Oh no no no!! I don't want any one to photoshop, morph, or bastardize Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin and Hobbes is my life bible, religion and everything around it.
I was just going to use strips to make a point... as Bill Watterson would say it. That's all.

Now how do I delete this thread before someone gets the idea to photoshop C&H? Pronto!

Nothing derails an eplaya thread faster than bacon.

Hmmmm, bacon...

Good god. Can't say I didn't see that coming.

When my 12 year old, youth group attending little sister and all her friends started posting Skrillex youtubes, I had a feeling the end was surely upon us.

..or is it just the beginning..

there have been several calvin and hobbes references (not by me) on here in the past.
I am very slowly rereading old C&H on the web page which appears to have every strip every done.
i do agree with fishy we are all calvin on the playa except those that are hobbes

This is by far the shortest, most meaningful comic strip ever!

Ahhhhh, Bill.

I had an outdoor Christmas tree one year that was so mangy that we called it Bill. Bill the Tree.

The neighbours maybe didn't like it much, but once it got its name, we loved it more than any other tree we'd ever had. :lol:
