Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for May 24, 1988
Dad: You broke the binoculars?! Didn't I tell you to be extral, extra careful with them?? Isn't that exactly what I said?! Well?! Those binoculars were brand new! Have you no respect for other people's property?!? Calvin: I have an idea, Dad, let's pretend I already feel terrible about it, and that you don't need to rub it in anymore.
