Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for November 30, 1986
Calvin: A brilliant bolt of deadly frap ray blazes by the Interpid spaceman Spiff! Calvin: Our hero has very high insurance premiums. Calvin: The courageous spaceman Spiff is hit! He plummets toward planet Zog! Calvin: Breaking through the cloud layer, he careens over an alien city! There's no place to land! Calvin: Spiff wrestles the uncooperative controls. More freem drive to the thruster blasters! Calvin: Too much stress! The fuel explodes in flame! Calvin: The situation is grim! Ten seconds to impact! Nine...eight...Miss Wormwood: Well, Calvin?? Calvin: Seven! Miss Wormwood: Very good, Calvin. Ten minus three equals seven. I didn't think you were paying attention. That question was worth three points. Calvin: Our hero miraculously makes a three-point landing. Spiff saves the day again!
