Dear 100 Hour Board,

This is a comment in response to Forelithe's bonus question:

The quote "Give me potatoes or give me death!" is from Gary Larsen's The Far Side cartoon depicting a typical supper table scenario at the home of Patrick Henry. I really liked this one because you can tell that Mrs. Henry is totally fed up with Pat's whole dramatic personality. 5 bonus points for me, and I didn't even need your hint!

A: Dear Noni Chick,

Good work, girl! I knew I'd seen it, but didn't remember where. The Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes are the best comics out there.
