Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for January 23, 1994
Calvin: How unoriginal! How jejune! Stupid kid. If you don't have anything to say, just keep quiet! Well this is certainly shocking! Face it kid, provoking a reaction isn't the same thing as saying something significant! Look, pal, there's no point expressing ideas if you can't have them understood! You're just babbling to yourself! And aren't we all bored with irony by now? You just think you're above it all, kid! I tell you, Hobbes, it's tough being the sole guardian of high culture. Hobbes: Talent like ours carries such enormous responsibility.
