Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for December 02, 2012
NATE: Come on, Francis! Race me to the mailbox! FRANCIS: Listen, Nate: What's the point of a race? Any race? To see who's faster right? But we already know who's faster! You are! FRANCIS: So there's no point in racing. NATE: Yes, there is! Just because I'm faster doesn't mean I'll win! What if I get a muscle cramp? What if I twist my ankle? The you could win! That's why people race, Francis! Because the outcome is always in doubt! Anything could happen! Okay, you're on! NATE: Now you're talkin'! Ready, set... DOOF! FRANCIS: "Anything could happen!"
