CALVIN AND HOBBES FANS: need some help again.





viceless
i need some help finding a calvin and hobbes book, but the only thing i can remember about it is the last line of the poem it had at the very last page. i was wondering if you could help me name it cause i wanted to buy it for my daughter. >D

anyways, the poem ended in something along the lines of:

and i'll make my parents regret they ever had me.

and i think the picture was calvin hugging his mom with her back to the page and Calvin with an evil smile on his face.

The closest one I can think of is:

Bill Watterson wrote:
I did not want to go with them.
Alas, I had no choice.
This was made quite clear to me
In threat'ning tones of voice.

I protested mightily
And scrambled 'cross the floor.
But though I grabbed the furniture,
They dragged me out the door.

In the car, I screamed and moaned.
I cried my red eyes dry.
The window down, I yelled for help.
To people we passed by.

Mom and Dad can make the rules
And certain things forbid,
But I can make them wish that they
Had never had a kid.


It's in The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes - not on the last page, though, and the image accompanying it is this one: http://homepage.mac.com/samuel.h.bradshaw/s/comicweb/calvin/poems/ididnotwanttogo.jpg

Actually, I believe you can see the page yourself at this page (if Amazon's reader works):

Not sure if it's in any other collections (except for "The Complete Calvin and Hobbes", of course)

Nah, it's day and I just arrived at work with nothing to do Razz Although night owl applies too, I'm rarely here at that time. Wink

Watterson just has a way of composing those poems for maximum effect Smile Like,

Quote:
My mom and my dad are not what they seem.
Their dull appearance is part of their scheme.
I know of their plans. I know their techniques.
My parents are outer space alien freaks!


and especially "Letter from Santa" Smile
