Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for July 10, 1988
Dad: Here's "Hamster Huey and The Gooey Kablooie." You might like this story. Calvin: Yeah? How good can it be if it hasn't been made into an animated TV show? I hope tonight's story isn't as boring as last night's was. It put me right to sleep. Dad: Don't worry. This story will keep you up all night. Calvin: Really? What is it? Dad: It's called "The Disembodied Hand That Strangled People." Calvin: Gosh, this is great! How creepy! I never get a scary story! A disembodied hand! Wow! Dad: And you know what's really scary! They never found it! To this day, nobody knows where the hand is! In fact, the hand could...Oh no! There it is! It's got me!! Calvin? Calvin? I should've thought of that years ago.
