Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 24, 1987
Mom: I called your teacher about Moe's bullying and she said she'd put a stop to it. Calvin: I'm afraid you wasted your time, Mom. Moe took one look at Hobbes and just about lost his lunch. I don't think Moe will be bothering me for a while. It's not every kid who has a tiger for a best friend. Mom: ...And what lucky moms those other kids have. Calvin: C'mon Hobbes. if you'll lend me a buck I'll buy you a comic book.
