Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 26, 1986
Calvin: ...So if you capture the other guy's flag and make it back to your territory, you win. Hobbes: Win what? Calvin: The game. Hobbes: No luggage? No toaster oven? Calvin: Hey, you can't hide your flag in a tree! It's too hard to capture! Hobbes: That's not a rule. I can hide my flag anywhere! Calvin: Well, it's a rule now! From now on, no flags in trees! Hobbes: Ok, but I just tagged you, so you have to go to jail. Calvin: What?? It's a time out! I was making a new rule! Hobbes: You didn't officially call a time out. Off to jail with you! Calvin: Forget ! From now on , if you're discussing a new rule, it's automatically a time out. Hobbes: OK, time in! TAG! Calvin: You can't do that! We have to say "time in" together! Hobbes: Since when?? You're changing the rules so you'll win! Calvin: I am not! I'm just trying to keep you from cheating! Hobbes: Just a minute, muffin head. Are you calling me a cheater? Calvin: Who's a muffin head? Strudel brain! Oatmeal face! Arrrgh Yowp! Calvin: Mom says we should take up Monopoly. Hobbes: No way, buster. I know all about those "interest-free bank loans" to yourself.
