Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 05, 1987
Dad: All right, young man! You've wasted the nice meal your mom fixed, get out here. You tied yourself up?? What on earth were you doing?! Calvin: Hobbes tied me up, Dad! It's his fault! Dad: Don't make up lies, Calvin. How did you get yourself like this?! Calvin: Hobbes did it, Dad! He was going to hold me for ransom! Honest! Hobbes: Ransom?? Who'd pay for you, you big fibber?! I'm certainly glad your dad saw through that filthy lie! Calvin: Oh hush, you always get me in trouble.
