Gardner Rea: Opting Out of Father's Day

All eyes are on dad in Gardner Rea's Look magazine cartoon from the June 19, 1963 issue. For this father of four, Father's Day may simply be too much of a good thing. But can he really buy his way out of it? Rea uses solid black only for the billfold, to ensure our eyes go right to the central focus of the gag.
"How much would it be worth to you just to forget Father's Day this year?"
Gardner Rea
Look, June 18, 1963, page 92

Note: My thanks to Dick Buchanan for getting all sentimental on us in anticipation of Father's Day. This post represents the twenty-sixth time Dick has contributed to Attempted Bloggery. The scan comes to us directly from the legendary Dick Buchanan Cartoon Clip Files. Dick contributes regularly to Mike Lynch Cartoons, most recently a post entitled "From the Dick Buchanan Files: Clyde Lamb Roughs 1946 - 65." It would be criminal to miss these!
