Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for March 17, 1999
NATE: Why is Mrs. Godfrey getting all over me just for chewing my fingernails in class? Gina Brigham chews her pencil in class but does Godfrey give her any grief? No! What's the difference? FRANCIS: Well, for starters, Gina doesn't get her pencil all wet and drooly, then spit it across the room...into someone else's hair! NATE: Look, that only happened once. Let it go, man.
