Our one and only beloved Calvin !!! From the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip by Bill Watterson (as if the intro was required? ;) hehe

Calvin selling lemonade:

-(Susie) 15 bucks a glass?!

-(Calvin) That's right! want some?

-(Susie) How do you justify charging 15 dollars?!

-(Calvin) Supply and demand

-(Susie) Where's the demand?! I don't see any demand!

-(Calvin) There's LOTS of demand!

-(Susie) Yeah?

-(Calvin) Sure! as the sole stockholder in this enterprise, I DEMAND monstrous profit on my investment! And as president and ceo of the company, I DEMAND an exorbitant annual salary! And as my own employee, I DEMAND a high hourly wage and all sorts of company benefits! and THEN there's overhead and actual production costs!

-(Susie) But it looks like you just threw a lemon in some sludge water!

-(Calvin) Well, I have to cut expenses SOMEwhere if I want to stay competitive

-(Susie) What if I got sick from that?

-(Calvin) "Caveat Emptor" is the motto we stand behind! I'd have to charge more if we followed health and environmental regulations

-(Susie) You're out of your mind. I'm going home to drink something else

-(Calvin) Sure! Put me out of a job! It's you anti-business types who ruin the economy!

Calvin frowns and walks into his house, once inside says to his mother:

-(Calvin) I need to be subsidised

Another one....

I've concluded that nothing bad I do is my fault. (Calvin)
Oh? (Dad)

Right! Being young and impressionable, I'm the helpless victim of countless bad influences. An unwholesome culture panders to my undeveloped values and pushes me to maleflicence. (Calvin)

I take no responsibility for my behavior. I'm an innocent pawn. It's society's fault. (Calvin)
Then you need to build more character. Go shovel the walk. (Dad)

These dicussions never go where they're supposed to. (Calvin)

Also...Hobbes at his best...

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
