Y'all probably saw this a million years ago, but the drawback to the Internet is that there's always some fool stumbling across old stuff and acting like it's new. Today, that fool is me.
And I bring you Galvin Chow's argument that Fight Club is actually about what happens to Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes fame when he grows up.
In the film Fight Club, the real name of the protagonist (Ed Norton’s character) is never revealed. Many believe the reason behind this anonymity is to give "Jack" more of an everyman quality. Do not be deceived. "Jack" is really Calvin from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. It’s true. Norton portrays the grown-up version of Calvin, while Brad Pitt plays his imaginary pal, Hobbes, reincarnated as Tyler Durden.
