This one appeared in the Texas Caver, the official caving magazine of Texas. They printed several other Calvins, which I am still searching for in my backyard shed. The smudge on the butler's face is water damage. I suppose I should try to fix that.

This one to the left is a little hard to make out. We see a cave man shaking a can of spray paint, holding a stencil of a running deer.
(ahem!) Ah... you see, cave dwelling prehistoric man used to
paint images of game animals in the hopes that he could better
catch them for food. The humor derives from the juxtaposition of
prehistoric man, spray paint, cave paintings, vandalism and food,
all of which have to do with caves.
I guess you had to be there.
