FoxTrot by Bill Amend for December 27, 1998
Marcus: On your mark...get set...begin the countdown.... Jason: T-minus 100..99. The great thing about us, Marcus, is how we learn from our mistakes. Take our ill-fated attempt at sledding with a drag chute last winter..the cute popped open, the sled screeched to a stop, and we went flying off, so what did we learn? We learned to strap ourselves in with six rolls of adhesive tape so we can't come off. Marcus: Maximum warp! Jason: Release the chute! Jason: Similarly, now we've learned not to do this in a windstorm. Marcus: Is that Australia up ahead?
