Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for November 30, 2016
Gramps: How does "oil painting with Rusty" help me if I want to do something different? Nate: Whatta ya mean? Gramps: What if I want to paint something that Rusty doesn't paint? Nate: But Rusty paints everything! Nate: He paints sunrises, sunsets, snow-capped mountains, log cabins, rainbows, waterfalls, babbling brooks, stately trees, puffy clouds, and majestic lakes! Gramps: I want to paint a bowl of fruit. Nate: Oh. Then you're hosed.
