Big Mike alerted me to the fact that today is Bill Watterson’s birthday.
Bill Watterson, creator of the greatest cartoon strip ever: Calvin and Hobbes. The six year old boy with the stuffed tiger alter ego ran in the South China Morning Post (amongst many others) and, when withdrawn in a ‘revamp’, attracted so many complaints that it was reinstated the following week.
To understand the mind of this genius you only need to know one quote:
I won’t eat any cereal that doesn’t turn the milk purple.
