Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 15, 1993
Letter: Dear Santa, Last year I did not receive the 15,000 items I requested for Christmas. I can only conclude that your secretarial staff must be a bunch of underpaid and woefully unprepared temps, and my letter was misfiled. To avoid a similar disaster this year, just write me a check for five million dollars, and I'll buy the stuff myself. Calvin: See, this year I won't be disappointed. Hobbes: I'd leave out the part about the temps.
