Nancy is More Specific

First | Previous | 2020-04-11 | Next | Latest

Strip by: KelpTheGreat

Fritzi: Nancy! Stop leaving crumbs everywhere.
Nancy: I can't.
Nancy: We need them for traction in all the places I spilled pizza grease.

The author writes:

Nancy's not wrong when she says friction, but since there is a word that refers to a specific application of the general principle of friction, why not use that?
