Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 17, 1991
Calvin: Mom never lets me stay up to watch the TV shows I really want to see. Hobbes: Why not? Calvin: She says they're too educational. I watched a nature program on TV last night. Afterward, I asked Dad if life was really nothing more than trying to survive long enough to reproduce before you became food for something else. Hobbes: What did he say? Calvin: Well, he looked at me a minute, and said he didn't know about the rest of it, but he thought that the importance of reproducing was greatly overrated. I've noticed in those programs how the young males often leave the herd at an early age. Hobbes: I think it's good that everyone becomes food.
