Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for June 12, 1988
Hobbes: Do you see any snapping turtles, eels or leeches in there? Calvin: Nope. So far, our expedition is a failure. Hobbes: How's the water? Calvin: Absolutely frigid. My feet are completely numb. If I go in just a half-inch every ten minutes, I can stand it. Getting your swimsuit wet is the worst part, though. As soon as it touches the water, it soaks up and clings to you, and gets you wet before you're ready. Hobbes: Why don't you just jump in and get it over with? Calvin: Are you kidding? The shock would kill me! It's better to go in a wee bit at a time. Hobbes: No, it's better to do it all at once. It's worse to drag it out. Calvin: You must've been dropped when you were little. Hobbes: I'll show you! Look out! Calvin: No! No! No! Hobbes: Brr-r-r-r-! Maybe you were right. Calvin: We'll never know now, will we?!?
