Sad Panda (In Which I Am Not As Sad As I Sound)

Apparently, based on my previous post, as well as my lack of responsiveness during the day today, that I sounded sad. I didn’t mean to sound sad. I’m sorry all. I am sad that you thought I sounded sad.

Now, I will no longer be sad.

My recent inclusion of a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip, by Bill Watterson, has reminded me how much I truly LOVE Calvin and his very real tiger, Hobbes.

If you have read Calvin and Hobbes, skip to the next paragraph(or keep reading, fine with me). For those of you that haven’t, the premise of the strip is that  6 year Calvin acquires a real tiger names Hobbes, that appears as a small stuffed tiger to everyone else. The catch is, some of the things that Hobbes does, couldn’t be accomplished by Calvin alone if he were just pretending his stuffed tiger were real.

Anyway, I love that kid and his tiger. I can’t lie, I’ve got a soft spot for tigers and anthropomorphic animals in general. Sometimes I think the animals bring a little something special to the table.

Alright, not really sure where I was going with this, but I’m content just lauding the merits of a great comic strip. If you haven’t read any Calvin and Hobbes, I strongly suggest you find some to read.

Do it right now.
