Calvin & Hobbes

Como si hiciera falta, aquí va otra maravillosa demostración de que Calvin & Hobbes es la tira más genial de la historia. No es sólo Calvin, no es sólo su Hobbes. Cuando el padre (u otro personaje “secundario”) pasa al frente, también se produce un momento inolvidable. “Well, we men are better at abstract reasoning. Go tell her that.” ¡Jua!

  1. Ah, esas charlas padre/hijo en Calvin & Hobbes son realmente gloriosas. Mi favorita personal es aquella acerca de las fotografías blanco y negro y color. No encuentro un link a la tira en particular en este momento, pero ésta vendría a ser la transcripición:

    Calvin: Dad, how come old photographs are always black and white? Didn’t they have color film back then?
    Dad: Sure they did. In fact, those old photographs are in color. It’s just the world was black and white then.
    C: Really?
    D: Yep. The world didn’t turn color until sometime in the 1930s, and it was pretty grainy color for a while, too.
    C: That’s really weird.
    D: Well, truth is stranger than fiction.
    C: But then why are old paintings in color?! If their world was black and white, wouldn’t artists have painted it that way?
    D: Not necessarily. A lot of great artists were insane.
    C: But… but how could they have painted in color anyway? Wouldn’t their paints have been shades of gray back then?
    D: Of course, but they turned colors like everything else did in the ’30s.
    C: So why didn’t old black and white photos turn color too?
    D: Because they were color pictures of black and white, remember?

    Calvin: The world is a complicated place, Hobbes.
    Hobbes: Whenever it seem that way, I take a nap in a tree and wait for dinner.
