Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 26, 1995
Hobbes: What's this? Calvin: A generic snowman. I used to make original snowmen, but it was time-consuming, hard work, so I said, heck, this is crazy! Now I crank out crude imitations of what's already popular! It takes no time or thought, and most people don't care about the difference anyway! Hobbes: So cynical, yet so practical. Calvin: And what good is originality if you can't crank it out?
