“I’ve never regretted stopping when I did.” Bill Watterson talks about Calvin and Hobbes for the first time since 1989. As we all know, the only contemporary strip to come close to capturing a similar spirit of fun since the golden age of the one-two punch that was C&H and Bloom County is Pearls Before Swine.
In season one of True Blood, Coby and Lisa ask Bill to see his fangs. He sticks some fries or something into his upper lip and mugs for them. In season two, Coby and Lisa ask Eric to see his fangs. Eric shows the kids his fangs. What’s this tell you about these two vamps, I wonder?
I personally think it’s funny to yell “speech! speech! just after someone has finished speaking.
