Hello fellow Calvin and Hobbes fans!

About this community and how I post the comic strip… The comics are posted in chronological order on the day (usually) they were released. Posting them to match the release date adds a bit of fun and nostalgia to match the experience of reading them in the newspaper for first time. Many moons ago, I would ask my Dad to save the newspaper for me everyday so I could read my favorite comic strips. It really sucked when I missed a day. Only years later, when I got the books was I able to catch up on the missed strips.

Calvin and Hobbes is a daily American comic strip created by cartoonist Bill Watterson that was syndicated from November 18, 1985, to December 31, 1995. Commonly cited as "the last great newspaper comic",[2][3][4] Calvin and Hobbes has enjoyed broad and enduring popularity, influence, and academic and philosophical interest… Read more:

Lobotomy jokes don't hit like they used to. It's just kinda sad now.

Yeah, agreed. Thankfully my dad died after having brain surgery for cancer so I feel like I've earned the right to continue to chuckle at them even if they're not appropriate. I think it's what he would've wanted. It's okay to be inappropriate as long as you're not hurting anyone.

Making jokes about my dad's death was actually probably part of my coping method. He did the same thing with jokes about his cancer.

If you can’t joke about death then what? I made jokes with my mother about having lost two toes to diabetes. Just couldn’t count past 18 anymore. She loved the manicures and pedicures insurance paid for. She was twisted.

My joking helps with coping with traumas. World’s greatest defense mechanism.

And I’ve been shaving my head for decades so I’ve heard jokes since the 90’s. All of them.
