Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for April 09, 1998
Nate Wright: I can't believe my doctor gave me a four out of ten on the "Physical development" scale! Francis: Calm down, will you? Francis: Instead of thinking of yourself as a four out of a ten, think of yourself as...oh, I don't know...Wiry! Nate Wright: "wiry"... Nate Wright: "Wiry"! Yeah! I'm Wiry! Like a steal cord! Francis: Wellll... You're more like a pipe cleaner. Nate Wright: A pipe cleaner? Francis: ...or one of those little twistees!
