Just Your Basic Question
What a timely discovery of this old comic strip with the recent publication of Charles Schulz’s biography Schulz and Peanuts. (And what a fascinating, brilliant man.)
This comic strip held a place of honour above my desk at university. Hence, the tape marks.
(And, no, I don’t save absolutely everything. Just the essentials.)
Peppermint Patty’s expressions capture perfectly the incredulity I experienced when presented with such all-encompassing questions on history exams.
“Use both sides of the paper if necessary” was just icing on the cake.
I still smile when I look at it.
