Saw this piece at the MFA and thought "Gauguin... why do I know that name." I guess the memory stuck from reading this strip when I was ten. One more strip i get the reference for. The great thing is that it was funny before and is funny now. Just switching from looking at it from Calvins perspective to his mothers. I spent more time in the dictionary reading calvin and hobbes then any school work I did and I would love to know the difference it made on my SAT.
