Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for February 23, 1999
Nate: Okay, here's my report on George Washington. George was a pretty interesting guy. For example, he had wooden teeth which I thought was sort of cool. Nate: Plus, he also got smallpox one time, which left scares all over his face. Of course, you can't really see any scares when you look at his picture on a dollar bill. Nate: One thing you never hear about is how tall George was. Back then, most people were like total midgets. I mean, a pair of pants from the old days looks like it would fit on a G.I. Joe! Nate: What does "Tangential" Mean?
