Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for November 23, 1990
Calvin: Can we burn these leaves? Dad: No, that pollutes. Calvin: But how can we appease the mighty snow demons if we don't sacrifice any leaves?! We'll have a warm winter! Dad: I don't know whether your grasp of theology or meteorology is the more appalling. Calvin: I guess I'll go light some candles around the toboggan and beg for mercy.
