Calvin and Hobbes

According to the email that I received this cartoon in, this cartoon is 15 years old...

Cartoon of Calvin tryinig to sell lemonade at $15 a glass and explains to Hobbes all the reasons he has to charge so much.  When she won't buy it he goes to his mom and says he needs to be subsidized

Calvin is trying to sell lemonade at $15 a glass. Hobbes is outraged. Calvin explains it is because of supply and demand. Hobbes points out there is no one else buying. Calvin says he is President and CEO of the company and he DEMANDS an exorbitant salary, etc. Hobbes points out the lemonade is lousy and Calvin says he had to cut expenses to stay competitive. Hobbes says she could get sick and Calvin says he's have to charge more if he followed health and environmental regulations. When Hobbes refuses to buy the lemonade Calvin goes to his mother and says he needs to be subsidized.

Now we know the rest of the story: Our banks, car manufacturers and government officials learned everything they know from the cartoon book of Calvin and Hobbes.

Too true! I wonder if the government will bail US out? I could use a new house, car, a job, some new clothes..etc etc

Just goes to show you how timeless some of the comics really are. That author was definitely ahead of his time.

With a 1.2 trillion dollar budget deficit in the works for 2009...I think I'd rather have Calin running the country - as insane as he was!

I always loved the love/hate relationship Calvin had with Susie Derkins. Calvin & Hobbes is timeless. Makes me want to go grab all my books and hunker down under a blankie and read them all night.
