Calvin and Hobbes, and so so wrong.....

Calvin and Hobbes, one of my favorite comic strips, is described by Wikipedia as "Following the humorous antics of Calvin, an imaginative six-year old boy, and Hobbes, his energetic and sardonic—albeit stuffed—tiger".

In other words, in Calvin's eyes, Hobbes is alive while the rest of the world, including his Mom and Dad, see a stuffed tiger. They pretty much go along with this and put it down to childish imagination.

It's funny because the first Calvin and Hobbes collection I picked up and began to read many years ago, it was not until about a third of the way through they showed a strip that had an adult in the picture and Hobbes was thus revealed to me as a stuffed animal! I had been thinking What is going on here with this kid and his tiger!

In spirit of yesterdays entry which was a Flintstone's 'ever so wrong' video, here today is one for Calvin and Hobbes. I would suggest if you are not familiar with the strip, and you want a really, really good laugh, read through the Wikipedia article linked above before viewing.
