  •  From "A Nauseous Nocturne", by Bill Watterson (4+ / 0-)

    "A Nauseous Nocturne" is a story told in watercolor that Watterson added as a preface to The Essential Calvin and Hobbes collection, and I thought you'd enjoy the final stanzas.

    As we enter our story, a monster from underneath the bed (where else?) is bearing down on Calvin, who sees no escape, and turns to say goodbye to his friend Hobbes the (stuffed?) tiger, heretofore unnoticed by the monster.

    HEY! WAKE UP, YOU STUPID CRETIN!
    YOU GONNA SLEEP WHILE I GET EATEN?!
    Suddenly the monster knows I'm not alone!

    There's an animal in bed with me!
    An awful beast he did not see!
    The monster never would've come if he had known!

    The monster, in his consternation,
    Demonstrates defenestration,
    And runs and runs and runs and runs away.

    Rid of the pest,
    I now can rest,
    Thanks to my best friend, who saved the day.

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
