FoxTrot Classics by Bill Amend for October 12, 2010
Roger: Have you seen all these trading cards our son is amassing? Andy: It's the Pokemon game. All the kids at his school are playing it. Apparently, Jason's got every card except one, and he's been buying packs like crazy thing to get it. He's borrowed his next 37 allowances It's like a sickness. Roger: So he doesn't have one card! What's the big deal?! Eileen: Did I mention I have the Charizard Card and you don't? Jason: Only 814 times today, Eileen.
I’ve never understood how you convince kids that something that’s literally worthless and has no entertainment value is somehow essential to their happiness so they’ll spend multiple fortunes on it. Normally Jason is smart, but here he comes across as REALLY stupid and gullible!
