Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 15, 1987
Calvin: Here is successful, Mr. Jones. He lives in a 5 acre home in a wealthy suburb. Here is his new Mercedes in the driveway. It's anyone's guess as to how much longer Mr. Jones can meet his monthy finance charges. Here comes Mr. Jones out of his attractive suburban home. He hops in his red sports car. Off he goes to work. 80...90..100 miles an hour! ...along the edge of the Grand Canyon!! Suddenly, his steering locks and his brakes fail! He careens over the edge! Oh no! Down he goes! His only hope is to climb out the sun roof and jump! Maybe, just maybe, he can grab a branch and save himself! He unwinds the sun roof! Can he make it?? No! The car explodes in mid-air, propelling millions of tiny shards into the stratosphere! Kablooie! The neighbors hear the boom echoing across the canyon. They pile into a min-van to investigate! What will happen to them?
