The Weather Outside Is Frightful . . . December 3, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Joke.

For the most horrific snowman humor on the planet,  check out Bill Watterson’s:

Calvin and Hobbes Snow Art Gallery

Be prepared to laugh until tears freeze on your cheeks.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Calvin and Hobbes is the funniest comic strip ever . . .

2. ryoko861 - December 3, 2012

I’ve always loved Calvin and Hobbes! I even learned a new word today! The kid was and still is WAY ahead of our time!

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

Yes! We used to use C&H’s strips to illustrate our Christmas Newsletter:

Calvin: I think if Santa is going to judge my behavior over the last year, I ought to be entitled to legal representation.

I mean, let’s face it, a lot of Christmas loot is at stake here, and the constitution says no person shall be deprived of property without due process of law.

So, you can be my lawyer, OK? It’s easy.

Hobbes: Me?

Calvin: Sure! Here’s a legal pad. You’re all set.

Hobbes: OK. But I don’t take pro bono cases.

you just brought out the child in me. my the collection of C&H books have now been passed on the next generation. thanks for the memories.

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

We had a collection of C&H books too . . . one of our favorite gifts to exchange at Christmas.

Here’s another strip we loved:

Calvin: OK, Hobbes, as my lawyer, you’ll need to review the facts of my case.

Hobbes: Right. We’ll try to establish that you were insane at the time of the alleged crimes.

Calvin: We’re not copping an INSANITY plea, you moron! We’re saying I’m INNOCENT!

You’re supposed to argue that I haven’t been bad this year, and I deserve to be on Santa’s “Good” List.

Hobbes: If that’s our case, I advise you to settle out of court.

Calvin: In a minute, you and I are going to settle this out of doors.

ha ha ha, I can just picture this scene.

nrhatch - December 5, 2012

They make quite the pair.

So so funny

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

Bill Watterson is like Charles Shultz on steroids. 😀

5. bluebee - December 3, 2012

Love ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ – was very sad when BW decided to put down his pens for good 😦

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

We canceled our newspaper subscription once Calvin and Hobbes no longer appeared in the “funnies” . . . because nothing else was nearly as funny.

Except, maybe, for Dilbert. 😀

6. ericjbaker - December 3, 2012

I had the old Calvin and Hobbes books in a box in my moms attic, stuck there years ago, where they passed out of my consciousness.

Looking for something else, I found them last year and brought them home for my son. Now he’s a huge fan.

Good is good, and some things are timeless.

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

Yay! I’m glad that your son is enjoying them . . . what a FUN “find” to find while browsing around the attic.

ericjbaker - December 3, 2012

That attic is a treasure of weird and cool items from my carefree, mindless past. Unfortunately, it’s also an isosceles right triangle-shaped crawlspace that is about 30 inches tall on the right, sloping down to zero inches tall on the left, and about 3 feet wide. And about 18 feet deep. With no light source but the flashlight I bring in. I’m 195 pounds and clautrophobic.

10 minutes is about all I can take of that.

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

You shall have to utilize your son’s smaller stature in future forays! Attics and kids go together like peas in a pod . . . even when the pod is very small indeed.

7. Andra Watkins - December 3, 2012

I peruse these multiple times a year, and laugh to tears every time. 🙂

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

Perfect for perusing . . . the first day of the WP snowfall.

8. Barbara Backer-Gray - December 3, 2012

I love that whole snowman series. My son has been a big fan of C and H for years.

nrhatch - December 3, 2012

I read an interview with Watterson from 2010 ~ 15 years after he stopped doing the strips. He has no regrets. He feels he said what he needed to say and is glad he stopped before we tired of his humor.

Barbara Backer-Gray - December 4, 2012

How could anyone get tired of his humor!

nrhatch - December 5, 2012

Beats me. 😉

9. Three Well Beings - December 4, 2012

These are great, Nancy! Thank you!

nrhatch - December 4, 2012

I just had a thought . . . Calvin was 7-ish when the strip started in 1985. In people years, he would be 32 now! That’s sobering.

I expect that one reason we love him is that he will never grow up and grow old. He’ll remain 7-ish forever.

10. sweetdaysundertheoaks - December 4, 2012

😆 C&H are the best!

nrhatch - December 4, 2012

And he’ll stay at that magical age forever . . . with Hobbes for company.

11. segmation - December 5, 2012

Let it Snow! and have fun with art!

nrhatch - December 5, 2012

Cyber snow + Art = Tons of Fun. 😀

segmation - December 5, 2012

Totally fun!

12. jannatwrites - December 6, 2012

There were some good ones there. I had to laugh at the snow dog doing its business by the fire hydrant. I could totally see my kids doing something like that….if we lived where it snows, that is 🙂 (As I add another check mark to the ‘pro’ column of desert living.)

nrhatch - December 6, 2012

That’s just what I was thinking . . . that your kids are the exact right age to create shocking snow sculptures, if only they had some snow to sculpt. 😯
