Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for February 22, 2015
Nate: If I hit that tree with this snowball, Jenny's going to dump Artyr and go out with me! Francis: Not this again. Francis: You're always doing these ridiculous if/then scenarios about Jenny! And does anything ever happen? No! Francis: I think it's pretty clear by now that Jenny's not going to magically fall in love with you! Francis: But you just keep on trying! You've convinced yourself that hitting a tree with a snowball will make it happen! Francis: It's not working, Nate. Move on. Nate: Okay, okay! I'll try something different! Francis: If I hit Francis with this snowball, he'll stop talking! Nate: Didn't work.
