Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for March 25, 2004
"This is your idea of a comic strip? 'Barky and whiskers'?" "Artur worked very hard on it." "Well, I worked hard on my strip too!" "Your strip? Nate Doctor Cesspool is the same joke week after week!" "Doctor Cesspool performs surgery on someone with a chainsaw, makes a tragic mistake, and ends up amputating the wrong body part!" Ha ha ha "It still cracks me up!" "This is why the New York Times has no comics page."
