Spaceman Spiff flees the despicable scum beings of planet Q-13! In a surprise maneuver, our hero turns to face the adversary! His hand tightens around the death ray trigger! It doesn’t respond. Spiff reaches for the mertilizer beam, but it doesn’t work either! Neither do the phospho bombs or the mordo blasters! Nothing is working!! 1812! Gettysburg! 16 fluid ounces! I before E! Thomas Edison! Perhaps someone who has been paying attention can help out Calvin! Spaceman Spiff escapes from evil creatures. Laser beams miss his spaceship. He grinds his teeth. To strike back, Spaceman Spiff turns and tries to fire his weapons. None of them works. Mrs Wormwood asked Calvin a question. Calvin shouts out the most likely answers to a question he doesn’t know at all.
I love Calvin’s answers.
