Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for May 22, 1991
Nate: I'm sitting here in Godfrey's class and she is lecturing about world geography again. Excitement plus. Mrs. Godfrey: Let's look at our map, shall we? Mrs. Godfrey: People! Hello! People! Nate: This stuff is so boring and useless it's unbelievable. Does she actually expect us to care? Mrs. Godfrey: Notice how Italy is in the shape of a boot. Nate: As if there will ever be a time in my life when I will need to know this stuff! Mrs. Godfrey: Yak yak yak Mrs. Godfrey: Nate, come show the class where Fiji is on the map, please.
I like geography. It actually is pretty important, Nate.
