    Aaand this one has been done before also. I understand collecting those things, but keeping them at school seems weird…

    No, it kind of looks like an Everlasting Gobstopper.

    Also, that kind of proves that the Big Nate Novel and Big Nate comic universe are the same.

    8/10 These tricks are getting more creative.

    I rather like the ‘Nate distracts a teacher with an intriguing topic’ trope. It may have been done several times before, but it’s usually well-executed and has a nice new spin on it each time.

    This is a nice strip. The kids get freedom from a quiz, and Mr Galvin gets to share some of his interests. Its a win-win and a bit wholesome in a way. IMO there’s nothing wrong with some repetition here and there, but they should be good repetition.

    This reminds me of when Johnnie Carson had on the Tonite Show a woman that collected unusual potato chips. She is involved in showing off her chips when Jonnie pulls out a bag of chips from his desk and very audibly crunches a chip from the bag. Her head snaps up and the shocked look on her face is hillarious!

    Couple things:

    >>

    —The first panel reminded me of when some of us would get wind of a fire drill impending in the dorm. “Um, gee, RA, I would stick around, but I have this critical organic chemistry exam Tuesday and HAVE to go to the library and study!” Those fire alarms would wake the dead.>>—More than once in high school calculus, we could delay a test by a day by bringing in a cake. There was a high-end supermarket with a wicked bakery behind the school, and sometimes we would walk over there, order a half sheet cake, get the counter girl to decorate it with the quadratic equation, and bring it in. The teacher would relent—for one day. She liked cake, too! But never more than one day.

    We had a teacher like that at St Francis High School named Father Baptist. All you had to do to get him to divert his attention was to ask him any irrelevant question and he was good for 20 minutes. He had a great personality and a good heart. I know that he is smiling from heaven right now. I, as a teacher, can only be diverted for about 3 minutes……

    For once, Nate is the hero? Amazing. Interesting that sort of fits in with today’s Big Nate: First Class, in which Nate is bragging to Francis about being street smart.

    If they ever make it to college they might have to take a poop quiz in their Bio 202 class. If they ever get out of elementary school.

    …funny how when Nate opened his locker to obtain the needed totem, the usual tidal wave of stuff dating back to (it isn’t out of the question, considering….) Columbus’ landing in the western hemisphere and maybe even further back then thatdidn’t thunder out of the opened door………

    There’s always a bunch of comics where Nate knows the teachers too well and takes advantage of them at the end. I think there could at least be some sort of comics where Nate ends up failing to do this to mix it up and divert the readers’ expectations. Honestly, it’s getting pretty repetitive at this point
