Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for September 13, 1996
CLASSROOM CHATTER! The Official Gossip Column of P.S. 38 Dear readers, the school year has barely begun, and already a blatant injustice has been done! P.S. 38's new DRESS CODE states that male students may not wear shorts during school hours! It's still officially summer, yet we must chafe beneath heavy layers of denim and corduroy! Is this fair? NO! We're not going to take it anymore! We must PROTEST! I challenge the male students of P.S. 38 to fight the dress code! Stand up and be counted like MEN! Nate: It's a kilt actually. boy: It looks like a dress to ME, right, guys?
