Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 15, 1989
Calvin: Boy, if it wasn't so close to Christmas, I'd bound you good. Hobbes: Yeah, I'd like to see you try! Calvin: Oh no you don't! You're not tempting me! I want every item on my Christmas list, so I'm being good. No matter what the provocation! Hobbes: Here comes Susie Derkins. Calvin: Really? Quick, help me find a pine come I can throw at... ...No! I'm being good! Good! Good! Good! Good! Hobbes: You'll never make it till Christmas. Give up now and enjoy yourself.
