“Inspiration”

Annie: The key to success is being spunky! And always working hard! And regularly punching people who give you trouble! And having a rich “dad” sure doesn’t hurt!

Hobbes: Personally, I find it helps to threaten to eat people.

Ann Walker: Please. Punching things is so gauche. Instead you buy up their company, then fire them and everyone they care about.

Ann’s Being: And having anyone eaten is just over-the-top. “Hello, have you met my seeing-eye tiger?” is more than enough to send the right message.

Ann: Now get those people out of our strip before a copyright holder sues us. I know I would, if I were them.
