Sunday’s Best: Calvin without Calvin

Today’s classic Calvin and Hobbes is a rare example of the strip without either of the two title characters.  This one is all about Calvin’s dad and his joy in bike-riding.  It’s broadly symmetrical like last Sunday’s strip (with some variation on the bottom row) and mostly monologue pointing out contradictions.  But those contradictions don’t hamper the love of bike-riding, anymore than the one line Calvin’s mom gets in at the end.  Makes you wonder what is being said about work.
