Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 18, 1987
Cavlin: This Santa Claus stuff bothers me...especially the judge and jury bit. Who appointed Santa? How do we know he's impartial? What criteria does he use for determining good and bad? And what about extenuating circumstances? Kids should have the benefit of legal counsel, don't you think? Hobbes: You're worried about the salamander incident, aren you? Calvin: Temporary insanity! That's all it was!
