Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 31, 2010
Jo Jo. The Amazing Dog-Faced Boy Gina says, "Ooh! Mr. Galvin's passing back our research papers!" Nate says, "Ah! Here comes my A-plus!" Gina says, "An A-plus? Dream on!" Nate says, "Listen, Gina, with a topic like mine, an A-plus is a lock!" Gina says, "Oh yeah, what was your topic?" Nate says, "The Amazing True Story of Jo Jo, the Dog-Faced Boy!" Gina says, "What?? The assignment was to write something about the immune system!!" Nate says, "Gina! Duh!" Nate says, "The guy was, like, half man, half dog! He obviously caught some sort of canine virus! That's immune system stuff, right?" Gina says, "Oh, goody! I got an 'A'!" Nate says, "Huh, an almost perfect grade!" Gina says, "Well, where's your A-plus, genius? Mr. Galvin didn't even give you back your paper!" Nate says, "...Probably because he's about to give me some sort of special award!" Mr. Galvin says, "Come with me, Nate. We're going to see the principal." Nate says, "Ha! Hear that Gina? Told ya!"
