    That’s right, blame Calvin’s faults on the Mother’s genes.

    Do as we say — not as we do.

    Those pesky recessive genes will get you every time.

    Calvin is, of course dad’s fault; that extra ‘y’ chromosome comes from
    him.

    And mom doesn’t realize her own hypocrisy. Wonderful…

    I Don’t think you should’ve said that.

    Darn those “mom genes”.

    No, Dad…you’ve got some great jeans. And if you’d kept them zipped, your life would be much easier.

    There is a classic C&H where Mom makes precisely that point.

    And just think, they had easy access to birth control. None of this was inevitable; reproducing was entirely voluntary.

    Actually the mother’s physiology has a significant part to play in determining gender. Male and female sperm survive differently under different pH levels and there are other factors as well that play part. So Dad is not entirely to blame usually. But we are used to taking the blame and often it is easier than the other consequences.

    40 minutes! By today’s standards, that’s an awfully long dinner!

    I like Bill Cosby’s old routine where the wife says “Well, the male has the determining factor, he carries the XY chromosome…” and he replies “Bull! According to my philosophy it’s the fault of the person who last HAD it. YOU had it last – what happened?”

    Few people ever recognize their own hypocrisy. It’s all part of the human condition.

    Where’s the hypocrisy? It isn’t Dad who got up for the phone. My wife doesn’t pay attention to me either.

    Actually, Mom’s probably tired of listening to Dad’s spiel (Watterson makes him so convincing-not!). The phone was a welcome escape.

    40 minutes?! 40? If I’m stuck at a meal for 40 minutes, it only means one thing. The server was too slow and won’t be getting a tip!
