Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for March 26, 1999
Teddy: Great match, Nate! How'd you manage to beat their best player so easily? Nate: Intimidation, Teddy! Nate: Even though Chess is a game of Brains and Not Brawn, I've discovered that giving my opponents a super-firm handshake works wonders! Nate: It shakes'em up! It makes'em play scared! Teddy: Sounds good! I'll try that with my opponent! Teddy: Can I have another Ice pack? Student: Checkmate.
