Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 03, 1989
Calvin: (Writing to Santa) (Dear Santa, How are you? Well, enough chit chat. Let's get down to business. This year I want..) Calvin: Will you drive to work and fax my Christmas list to Santa? Hobbes: That's a big envelope. Are you mailing a book? Calvin: This is my Christmas list. Can you believe this is costing me $2.40 to send? Hobbes: Yes. Calvin: Well, at this price all I can say is that Santa had better read it darn carefully. Last year I didn't get half of what wanted. Hobbes: Have you behaved any better this year? Calvin: It depends on how you...Hey, just what are you insinuating?! Why, I'll have you know I've been a veritable angel this year, just like always! Hobbes: In that case, we can have a cookout with your stocking contents. Calvin: Don't get smart, Bub, or I'll wallop you on the 26th. Hobbes: Did you put anything on your list for me? Calvin: What, and pay more postage? This package is breaking my arms already! Go write your own list! Hobbes: Tidings of comfort and joy to you too. Calvin: Look, it's every man for himself in this world. Now give me a boost, will ya?
