Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 14, 1986
Calvin: I spelled "be" How many points do I get? Hobbes: Um. 2 points. Calvin: 2 points?! Is that @*#% all?? Hobbes: My, this game does teach new words! See, I spelled "zygomorphic? on a triple word score box. That's 150 points. Cavlin: All I've got is consonants. Hobbes: Your turn. Cavlin: We,, if I use your letter "I", I can spell "in" that's 3 points. Hobbes: I pick out some new letters..hmm..with your "n", I can spell "nucleoplasm." That's, let's see, 40 points. Calvin: All I've got is consonants. I'm not going to play this stupid game! I hate it!! What a waste of time! Hobbes: What should we play instead? Calvin: Let's play poker. At least with cards you have half a chance. Ok, I bet a nickel... Hobbes: I'll see you and raise you 8 dollars.
