Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 01, 2002
"Choose a piece, Artur!" "Hokay, I will be top hat." "Hold it, hold it! The top hat's my lucky piece!" "Oh, come on, Nate! This is Artur's first gave ever!" "Yeah, let him have the lucky piece!" "Oh! Okay!" "He plays first board on the chess team, he gets straight a's and all the girls in school are in love with his 'cute accent,' But...yes, folks, Artur needs more luck in his life!!" "On second though, I will be perky terrier." "Can I get you anything else, Artur? A four-leaf clover? A rabbit's foot?"
