The Far Side


Recommended Posts

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.

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


Not even close to new.
