"Happy Father's Day"

A panel published past it's time, but hey, these are timeless anyways, right? Originally drawn in response to the inevitable outbreak of Hallmark platitudes that clog up the internet (most notable is the avalanche on the Facebook feed) around that most sacrosanct celebration, second only to Mother's Day in its saccharine insipidness. Ignoring the Freudian overtones of such harsh cynicism, it's ironic to consider the other 364 days of the year when the news is filled with horrible, ugly, stupid shit largely on account of the males of our species, many if not most of whom are also dads.
 At least I edited out the original caption which pointed up a bit more blunt biological origin of what shortly ensues from such a scenario: "And then he killed and ate him." Good thing I learned as a child to resolve my psychological issues with humor.
