Gary Larson, through his Far Side cartoons, has always made me laugh. Published in syndicated newspapers for fourteen years, until 1995, Larson’s “The Far Side” cartoons could be found on greeting cards, calendars, in books and more. I was among those people who were disappointed when Larson decided to retire from regular publishing, although his work lives on.
This particular cartoon has long been one of my favorites (along with the great “When Clowns Go Bad” cartoon), so I’m sharing it with you this week.
Unfortunately Far Side calendars, greeting cards, t-shirts, coffee mugs, posters, computer calendars and screensavers, and Day Runner organizers/organizer refills are all discontinued products and are no longer being made by their respective companies, though they can still be found online at places like Amazon.com and eBay.
Do visit Gary Larson’s The Far Side website at http://www.thefarside.com/. There you can buy his short films Tales From The Far Side and Tales From The Far Side II on DVD, and it’s SOOO worth it!
And if you’ve got something of his from “the old days”, hold on to it. It might really be worth something some day…
