** In another strip when Calvin and Hobbes had a fight, Hobbes threatened to quit the club and start his own. When Calvin said his club wouldn't have a "cool acronym" for a name, Hobbes said he'd call it C.A.D. (For "Calvin's a Dope". This, of course, made Calivin change the name of ''his'' club to "Hobbbes is an ugly flea bag" and only made them fight more.)
