    I wonder if they’re going to break the fourth wall. They seem to be getting really close to figuring out the sad reality of being a cartoon character.

    Was Francis making fun of himself and Nate or of Lincoln?

    I’m hoping Nate and Francis don’t change their shirts too. And just for the record, I used to call Nate’s shirt yellow with a big blue stripe at the top

    If this leads to them finding out that they are cartoon characters, I hope that it won’t lead to the end of the strip.

    Teddy, just change the shirt. A combination of Purple and green just looks ugly.

    Big Nate: Choose Your Own Story!

    You decide to play a prank on Gina. She walks into the library, and finds a spot at a table. She looks around for a book. You and Nate go up to her chair, and Nate places an ice cream sandwich on it. “It’s a waste of good food, but worth it!” Gina was coming back, and you and Nate run fast. As soon as Gina sits on the chair, SPLURCH! “WHAT’S GOING ON!” she yells. She looks around for you and Nate, and spots you. She runs toward you. “WHAT ARE YOU DOING! you have no meaning in time and space!”

    Do you,

    (a) insult her

    (b) roast her

    © run!

    All of you arguing about the “fourth wall”… Francis already broke it when he said the word “laziness”. He’s referring to the cartoonist’s laziness, of course

    Laziness because it is easier for the cartoonist? If so, that is excellent self deprecating satire by Lincoln,
