Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for April 10, 1999
Nate: Here you go, ma'am. We're awfully sorry... Francis: Thanks a lot, Nate! First you freak out that lady's cat. Then you make me climb up a tree to rescue the poor thing! Nate: "Poor thing"? That cat was vicious! I came darn close to getting clawed! Francis: Here's a news flash, pal... Nate: You're a lot closer to "Clod" than you realize.
