FoxTrot by Bill Amend - Father's Day comic published June 16, 2002 - Peter: In honor of Father's Day, Dad, we've decided to all pitch in and relieve you of your normal Sunday workload. Paige here will handle your watching golf and baseball on TV... Jason will take over your newspaper reading and long bathroom breaks... And I will shoulder the tasks of snacking, napping and general puttering for the day. Now you're finally free to do all those things you've had to put off, like painting the garage or cleaning out your closet! Roger: Have you noticed our kids developing a cruel sense of humor? Andy: Peter, you forgot trimming the hedges!

FoxTrot by Bill Amend - Father's Day comic published June 18, 2000 - Roger: It's really nice of you to come out and play golf with me son on Father's Day, son. I know you're not exactly as enamored with this game as I am, and you'd probably rather be out and about with your friends. So I thought I'd let you know there's another things you could do that I'd probably enjoy even more. Peter: What's that? Roger: Not play golf with me. Peter: This putt is for eagle, right?
