Whyatt, the cartoonist, said he expects that greeting card companies soon will be requesting Father's Day cartoons showing more dads like himself. Working from home, Whyatt said, he's "very hands-on" with his two sons, ages 2 and 3.
"I've stuck with the old image because it's funnier," Whyatt said. "I'm sure there's a way to make the new image of fathers funny as well, but it would be a shame to lose making dad the butt of the joke. Even though we're all changing, hopefully we'll still be able to take a joke."
