Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for March 19, 2004
"Principal Nichols! What's up big fella?" "Big fella?" "Nate, calling me, Big Fella, simply is not acceptable." "Ah! I know where you're coming from sir." "But I can assure you that when I call you 'Big Fella,' I'm referring to your position in the school hierarchy, not to your unfortunate weight problem." Pat "Thank you for clarifying that." "A man of your stature deserves respect."
