Some of my favorite Calvin and Hobbs snow art cartoons. You may need to clicken to enbiggen. Or find a pair of reading glasses.
Maybe I enjoy these so much because this is the level of my snow art ability.
Calvin: Dad, if you threw a snowball at someone, but deliberately missed, would that be "bad"?
Dad: Well, I suppose that would be provoking, so yes, it would be a little bad.
Calvin: As bad as if you'd hit the person?
Dad: No, not that bad, but worse than if you hadn't thrown it at all.
Calvin: Suppose you just grazed the person. How bad would that be? Say maybe you knocked off his hat and his glasses or something.
Dad: That would mean instant death.
