The Far Side

Recommended Posts

Far Side, Bloom County, and Calvin & Hobbes are also my favorite comic strips of all time.  I had piles of anthologies as a kid.  They got lost in the shuffle when my parents split up, but my brother got me a massive Bloom County collection a couple of years ago.

The lab I used to work in at UT had all the professor/scientist ones hanging on the wall.

There was one I can't find where some scientist was looking in a microscope at his thumb. A second scientist was looking over his shoulder with intense interest. A third scientist was shouting to a fourth scientist (who was writing some equations on a board), saying "Hey Phil, you better hurry up and get over here if you want to see Frank's hangnail!"

If you've never read any of the Far Side books, highly recommended.  Shows the drafts of Larsen's final products, the "concerned" / hate mail, etc.  This is a great one:

Pre-History of the Far Side is one of my all time favorite purchases.

Then there was the Christmas I got my father a Brother P-Touch label maker and assorted color tapes to replace his old school impact label gun. Within hours not only were all the old impact labels replaced but the hanging folders in the filing cabinet were relabeled and all the hand tools on the perforated boards in the basement and the garden tools in the garage had color-coded assigned places. And the ammo boxes and compartments in the fishing tackle box.

Can't believe all of y'all ranking comic strips are sleeping on Mary Worth.

This seems like a pretty typical example of trying to get some stuff built these days.

A new term that needs to be worked into conversations going forward.

 

Not even close to new.

Gah the laughs.

My favorite:

(i looked for it)  The guy sits at his desk littered with wads of paper, with a look of total frustration.

Captioned:  The Inability to Achieve Origami
