Calvin and Hobbes

Again, being the sucker for parody that I am, I present a weird Un-cyclopedia look at Calvin and Hobbes . It takes the concept of Calvin and Hobbes’ being based on the philosophers Calvin and Hobbes and runs in a weird, playful, absurd direction.

It’s so great…somebody had too much spare time on his/her hands to write this, but darned if I didn’t enjoy it vey much. My favorite quote of the whole article (from the Character Description section):

“John Calvin is an ecclesiastical reformist and psychic detective…He nominally attempts to solve mysteries, but usually ends up being sidetracked by getting into fights with Catholics or Arminians, whom he always eventually challenges to a game of Calvinball.”

a strip
“Hobbes would often challenge Calvin’s belief in predestination by trying to shock him out of it.”

Am I just a huge geek, or does that make anyone else laugh like crazy? The illustrations are priceless too, I think this might just be my new favorite thing on the internet.

    To answer your question, yes, and then no; it doesn’t make anyone else laugh like crazy, but that’s okay, too. Whatever flips your slippers, turn it up.

    Yes and yes. I loved it.

    If I answer yes and yes, does that make me a huge geek too? I love the Calvin & Hobbes comics, and have actually wondered if Watterson had the philosophers in mind when he named them. Never thought of the two of them actually interacting in a comic strip fashion; truly a sign of a twisted mind (twisted in a good way!)
