Remember Calvin & Hobbes, and Calvin’s occasional forged excuse notes for Mrs. Wormwood?
One of them said something along the lines of “Please excuse Calvin from school today. I need him in a matter that’s of the utmost national importance. Signed: the President of the United States. P.S. Really.”
I was reminded of that particular strip when I saw this news item about a fourth-grader getting a handwritten excuse note from the President of the United States.
That’s kind of cute, and I can only imagine the teacher’s reaction.
“You have an excuse note from who now? Riiiight….sure you do.”
