Calvin and Hobbes: Ahead of its Time, Corporate Arrogance
I adore Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson, with a passion reserved for exactly two other comic strips besides itself, The Far Side by Gary Larson and Bloom County by Berkeley Breathed. And I'm aware that Calvin's creator is very averse to commercialism. I can't imagine what the "Calvin peeing on X" does to him. Calvin peeing, really? Anyway, I found this strip on the interwebs, and I'm passing it on. But I'll gladly remove it by request if necessary. But it is so on point, so perfect. I just had to share it.
