Good Ol'

Strip by: Mt. Calvin

Calvin (reading a paper aloud): Our country was founded a very long time ago, roughly around 200 B.C.E.
Ms. Wormwood: 200 B.C.E.?!
Calvin: "Before Calvin Era."
(Calvin is sitting on a stool in the corner, wearing a dunce cap)
Calvin: THAT'S WHAT'S IMPORTANT!

The author writes:

This idea popped into my head shortly after I learned about the use of B.C.E instead of B.C. in the namesake Jontron video (The link is only a clip, the full video breaks the PG-rating of the webcomic).

Original strip: Calvin and Hobbes, 1992-5-16
