Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for May 04, 2014
Nate: Ding dong Nate: Hi, Mr. Kendall! Care to buy a candy bar to support the timber scouts? Mr. Kendall: Absolutely NOT! Mr. Kendall: I'm a SAVER, not a spender! I don't just throw money at anyone who comes knocking! Nate: Yup, that's what Francis said you'd say. Mr. Kendall: Eh? Who? Nate: Francis. My friend over there. Nate: He says you're the cheapest guy in town. Mr. Kendall: THRIFTY is what I am! Nate: He bet me ten dollars I couldn't sell you a candy bar. Mr. Kendall: Then he's a smart lad. Nate: But if I WIN the bet. I'll give YOU 60 percent! That's six dollars! Nate: The candy bar only costs FIVE! So you'll end up with a candy bar AND a net profit of ONE DOLLAR! Mr. Kendall: Deal! Nate: He's allergic to chocolate he just wanted the dollar.
