    I love that story. I always find it amusing when a publicist or an institute or whatever gets up and arms about a joke regarding whoever they represent and then get shot down by that very person because he/she likes the joke. :lol:

    I love the Far Side. Someday I'm going to go out and get the definitive two book set of all the strips...

    my favorite one though was Dr. Frankenstein, looking at his watch in his lab. Behind him, Igor is seen coming through the door hauling a train by a rope, bug-eyed. The caption read: "Now where could Igor be? I sent him out to get a brain an hour ago!"

    :lol:

    - Tonto is waiting outside of an outhouse. Caption: "Kemosabe...the music's starting! The music's starting!"

    - Bear awakens from inside a coffin. "For crying out loud, I was hibernating! Don't you guys ever take a pulse?"

    - Testing to see whether or not animals 'kiss'

    - Angry man opens the door of his fridge and pulls out a banner labelled CONDIMENT DANCE TONIGHT: "I'll just take THIS, thank you! And knock off that music!"

    I loved The Far Side - still my favorite strip.

    Offensive? Hardly. I mean I guess if you're an oversensitive animal nut, but it struck me as pretty gentle. What's really offensive is the BS that Family Circus tries to pass off as humor.

    The great one-panel comic is a dying art; Bizarro is good, although it's still no Far Side; others, like Brevity, are hit-or-miss. The Far Side was and always will be the best!

    I liked the Boxers nightmare....a guy dressed like a boxer is in bed having a dream where he is losing a fight to a giant crab, ( well roughly human size)....The boxer is saying that he can't hit the guy cause he is moving side-to-side... :)

    Always loved the Far Side

    There's just SOOOOO many good ones, I can never decide which one is my particular 'favorite'... All depends on the type of day, basically.

    Of course, the one where the snake hangs / commits suicide by tying himself into a noose is always classic. :lol: :guffaw:

    Cheers,

    I have both of those. I think if I could end up with a Complete Fox Trot collection I'd have everything set in the comic strip department.

    I think my favorite one is where King Kong is lying dead in the street, you only see his huge feet with the rest of him out of the frame. Theres a whole bunch of people there and a farmer with a shotgun going, "Well, heck i just said "Why doesnt someone just shoot the varmint?"

    There's also one where King Kong apparently left his monogrammed handkerchief behind, and the detective is trying to figure out who left it (incorrectly guessing Godzilla as one culprit). Larson said he couldn't think of many other famous monsters who have first and last names, so he went with KK.

    - Boy is reporting to his science teacher, who has his back turned so he can't see that the boy has a giant robot behind him: "My project's ready for grading, Mr. Big Nose. Hey, I'm TALKING to you, squid brain!"

    - A huge African warrior is in a phone booth, and there is a small boy with him. The man is talking on the phone: "Mrs. Harriet Schwarz? This is Zathu Nananga of the Masai. Are you missing a little boy?"

    - Several explorers are walking through the jungle, not realizing that a curse has been put on them by natives: "Before you leave this valley, each of you will be wearing a duck."

    - A bear is returning to his cave where his mate, obviously annoyed that he's late, is waiting for him. She says something about "well, this better be a good excuse". We see that the male bear is covered with tags, labels, etc. that scientists use on test subjects.
