I would think you’d boost your self-esteem first in order to become famous.
Wow Sluggo should become a politician when he grows up. In one sentence he solved her low self-esteem problem, and turned it into a high self-esteem problem. And who knows which situation is worse.
The year of the ego
Hah! Nancy… so very low esteem!
Fame is fleeting. Wit is eternal.
Now, if I could just find my wits. They were here just a minute ago. Anybody seen my wits? I had them about me …
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how olivia jaimes’ nancy basically follows from calvin of calvin and hobbes. It’s a good tack, and mostly I’ve been thinking about how few other comics have really followed that sort of vein of childish ego since. Nancy ends up a bit different because she doesn’t have such a reliable foil as hobbes, but her relationships to her other classmates is better supported and works with larger stories than calvin’s, like, two named classmates.
The new ‘Nancy’ is more and more like the new ‘Alley Oop’. Totally unlike the previous incarnations…
Nancy, even if you become the most successful attention whore of all time, get your name in the headlines every day, you’ll find you still won’t have any self respect – and you probably won’t get reelected.
Why does she remind me of Lucy von Pelt here?
