Frazz by Jef Mallett for April 24, 2005
girl: Sean says bats are rodents. Frazz: He's wrong. girl: Ha! I was right to be cynical! Frazz: Wrong. girl: What? How can I be wrong if Sean's wrong? Frazz: You're not cynical. You're skeptical. girl: Cynical and skeptical are the same thing. Frazz: Actually, they're not. One is to doust a purported fact. The other is to assume someone is motivated by his own selfish interests. girl: You're making that up so you can win an argument. Frazz: Now that's just cynical.
