calvin and hobbes
When a kid starts reading the newspapers, the first section he would learn to read are the comics. I was no different. I had a great fascination with Kee's World, that local comic in the Star newspaper. Mostly because it had a great deal of pictures. The problem with comics like that is that they get dull very quickly. Its a case of 'seen one, seen them all'. The satire is almost always of the same genre. Labels: musings
Thinking about it, it soon became obvious why. Calvin and Hobbes was a comic about a kid who:
1) talks a lot to his imaginary friend.
2) is sarcastic and obnoxious like hell.
3) has a vivid imagination.
4) is smart ass with smart ass opinions about everything.
5) enjoys taking the piss out of girl(s).
Remind you of anybody you know?
Sounds like you, Vincent.
*if you know me well enough, you would have been able to see the similarities between myself and that comic strip above....shit, just read yesterday's article*
tilia : Yes, that would be cool thing to do.
yungjie : Hobbes more moderate in thought than Calvin, and nowhere as cool.
Unfortunately, Vincent, I don't love you.. :P
suanie : Ah...its never too late to learn the dark side of the force...Oh, wait. That's a different story.
lyn : I've blogged about him before. http://vbglau.blogspot.com/2004/09/my-friend.html
Yes, I am a LITTLE eccentric.
