The Third Panel

A colleague of mine was given a cartoon with two panels and posted it in her workspace. It was from Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

Panel One
CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.

Panel Two
HOBBES: How so?
CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.
I suspected a third panel. Watterson wouldn't leave the reader/viewer with bland sentimentality. There would be an undercurrent of irony. And so it appeared in all its stellar glory.
Panel Three
HOBBES: We spent our day looking under rocks in the creek.
CALVIN: I mean other people.
I like how the emphasis on "our" and "other" tugs. There is a greater galaxy in the full three panels.

And so for day 1514
