more dance numbers, please.


Calvin: They say the world is a stage.

But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines.

Hobbes: Maybe that’s why it’s hard to tell if we’re living in a tragedy or a farce.

Calvin: We need more special effects and dance numbers.

— Calvin and Hobbes, from “Calvin & Hobbes,” on the tragicomedy of life

  1. so timely – our government has just decided that as of next Monday (or is it Saturday?) only ppl with (C) certificate are allowed to go to restaurants, cultural events, sports, swimming pools, etc and ‘church attendance’ is back to max 50 as it was until a very short while ago….. we DO NEED MORE special effect, dance(s), joy – and far less tragicomedy!

  2. I love this quote: I love how you pull these wonderful sayings from all a sorts of unlikely sources 🙂 and, yes, more dance numbers especially for parts of Oz struggling under Covid; our state thankfully is Covid free and has been for long as I remember 🙂
