I know it's hard to explain Far Side panels, but let's try.

My favorites are:

There's a field of cows and some cars driving by. The cows are yelling at the cars, "Yak, yak, yak, yak..."

Captain Hook is on one side with a phone to his ear. The Crocodile is on the other side saying in to his phone, "Tick, tock, tick, tock."

This guy is in hell, walking and whistling happily. One devil says to another, "We're just not getting to that guy."

Gotta be the one with two polar bears.. one is lifting an igloo and the other is standing looking dumbfounded while the eskimo makes a clean getaway... the caption reads.. "I lift.. you grab.. Was that concept just a little too complex for you to grasp?"

Ever since, whenever someone has that same dumbfounded look...those are the words that flow out of my mouth

Mine is "Graffiti in Hell", where you see the Devil throwing a hissy fit after reading some of the graffiti:

Satan is a warm and tender guy

For a pleasant conversation, call Satan 555-1232

Hey! You call this hot?

Two houses side by side, with fences around them, and signe identifing them. The one on the left has dog-like animals milling about and the sign 'Ed's Dingo Farm'. On the right the fence is full of babies with the sign 'Doreen's Nursury'. The caption read: Trouble Brewing

The other showed a large glass window, like you'd find in a recording studio, set in a rock wall. In the foreground sits the devil, holding and surrounded by New Age albums. Behind the glass is a black man, arms stretched across the window, a crazed expression on his face. He obviously doesn't care for the sound.

Two young birds are sitting at the breakfast table. One of them has his mouth wide open. His mouth is full of worms. The other little bird (a girl bird, I think) is saying, "Mom! Earl's grossing me out!"

There are so many to choose from. One of them shows one chimp grooming another, and the grooming chimp says, "A blonde hair? I suppose you've been some more conducting research with that Jane Goodall tramp!"

Dr. Goodall saw this, guffawed, and said, "Hey, I've really made it! I'm in the comics!"

Unbeknownst to her, a woman executive in Goodall's organization wrote a nasty letter to Larson which went something like "How dare you even suggest she had sex with the animals!" and so forth including threats of court action.

Years later, National Geographic wanted to put this cartoon on a t-shirt. Larson's people said, "No, we don't think so," and told them about the letter. Someone from Natl. Geo. said, "That doesn't sound like the Jane Goodall I know" and contacted her. She was very surprised to hear about this and straightened the whole thing out. (The letter-writing woman had left the organization in the interim.)

Cave man watches a bird fly by.

He starts flapping his arms like crazy, trying to take off.

He realizes this isn't gonna work, sits down and thinks for a while.

He gets some tree branches, vines, and a hammer, and starts banging away. In short order, he has invented the ...

... bow and arrow, which he uses to shoot the bird.

I have to second the "Midvale School for the Gifted" one.

Also, an obviously stumped Einstein is standing frustratedly before a blackboard covered with scrawlings such as: "E=mc^10" "mc/E=?" "E+m+x=c" "E=mc^3" etc...all crossed out. At the desk behind him the housekeeper says to herself: "That's much better -- everything squared away. Yes sir, squaaaaared away.

My favorite was the one with the cows standing on their rear legs talking. The lookout yells 'Car' and they get on all fours. After the car passes, they resume upright postures. Second favorite is all of the other 'cow'toons.

Two more:

The inside of a small store, a counter and cash register and a clerk. No racks or shelves anywhere. Very high ceiling in the place, and the only shelf runs just below the ceiling. It has the packages and cans, etc.
Caption: Inconvienience Stores

In the foreground, an easy chair with a llama reading the newspaper. Midground, is wife, also a llama, looking out the window at another llama outside, coming up the walk, carrying a briefcase.
The wife llama is saying:
"Llook Out Llarry, it's the Llandllord!"

BONUS
The cat couple with the wife in the kitchen opening a can, through the window are two more cats coming through the gate, the husband standing, holding a newspaper and saying:
"Zelda, cool it! The Rothenbergs hear the can opener!"

My favorite is the cave men sittig around an animal carcass and one is about to eat some plant. The caveman next to him stops him and says
"No, no, Grak, no eat parsley... Just for pretty." that one busts me up every time.

My favorite would be, and I'm suprised that it's not been mentioned so far:

Old lady is yelling out her livingroom window for her pet poodle, Fifi, to come busting through the doggy door.

"Faster Fifi, faster!!"

She has braced the doggy door closed with a board

Both of my favorites involve couches. (?) These captions are from memory, so they may be flawed.

1.The frumpy wife has taken all the cushions off the couch so she can vacuum out all the trash that eventually collects in there. Crammed down in the back and peering out at her is a man's head. "Harold! So that's where you've been. And there's my old hairbrush!"

2.All the cushions have been taken off the couch and assembled into a structure in the middle of the living room. A man's bespectacled face pokes out. His wife is telling him, "You can rebuild the fort later, Henry. The Smiths are coming over to visit and I need the cushions."

I've never seen the cartoons NickyLarson mentions; I thought I'd seen every Far Side a jillion times. Those were hilarious.

My favorite cartoon is set in an airline cockpit.

Outside the cockpit window, surrounded by clouds, you can see a mountain-goat looking at the plane.

The co-pilot says to the pilot: "How'd that mountain goat get way up here?

Second favorite: Dorky kid in glasses has some bugs in a jar, and on the window sill is a picket line of bugs with signs reading "Free the Mayonaise Jar 7".



Absolute favorite: Panel 1: two owls sitting on a branch facing away from us. Panel 2: one of the owls reaches over the other and taps him on the opposite shoulder. Panel 3: tapped owl with head turned around backwards (rotated 180 degrees in the direction he was tapped). Genius.

My favorite is the second one down in the second column.

http://www.fortunecity.com/victorian.../tiffanyg.html

I also like one where the show a fish with balloons tied to him zooming to the surface of a lake. The caption reads: They have sent Charlie to "sleep with the humans".

For some reason the mob ones crack me up.

Two of my top three already mentioned:

1) "Midvale School for the Gifted"
2) "Curiosity Killed these Cats"

3) Set in a donut shop. There's a kid leaning on a broom that looks like he weighs about 400 pounds. His boss is standing next to him saying something along the lines of "I just don't understand it. We're moving 5000 donuts a day and I'm not making any profit."

A lot of great ones have been listed.

Some of my favorites are:

A couple of scientists have written a lot of mathematical equations on a blackboard and then they are looking at a dog that is staring at the equations. One scientists says to the other, "I love it when they try to comprehend quantum mechanics"

Another is a scientist (or mathematican) beginning with a complex equation and then in the middle is written "Then a miracle occurs" and then the answer is written at the bottom. (I always thought that would be a good way to answer a question on a math test, just for fun of course)

That's all for now.

The sandwich mafia sending Luigi to "sleep with the 4th graders" by casting him into a cafeteria at lunch time.

The graceful, noble, deer, while jumping over a log, whose antlers are moments from colliding with a tree limb above the deer. The caption: "Moments you don't see in nature films"

While we're on this Far Side kick, does anyone remember the TV special that was on, oh, 8 or so years ago? It was a cartoon (obviously) either 30 or 60 minutes long, and downright hilarious. IIRC, Gary Larson had said he was going to make TV episodes like that one when he retired. Then again, I could be remembering this all wrong.

Ooh, ooh, the Boneless Chicken Farm is one of my favorites. But I remember the chickens all lying flaccidly on the ground, not walking around...

My very favorite is one with a split-screen effect...in the bottom right triangle, we see a man so enveloped in giant squid tentacles that the only clue that he's calling for help is his protruding hand clutching a phone.

In the top left, we see a phone ringing in the empty office of Bob's Squid-B-Gone, and a note on the door that reads, "Back in a jiffy!"

My fav still has to be (and I don't know WHY) the two adult rattle snakes facing each other with a baby rattlesnake between them. The baby is shaking its head rather than its tail and one of the adults says, "You realize that's from YOUR side of the family."

Another classic is the jar of humans, broken, fallen to the earth from above, with (presumably) god's voice echoing from the heavens, "Damn!"

Also among the favourites, the dog in a car leaving the driveway, with his head out the car window saying to his pal who sits in the yard next door, "I'm going to the vet to get tutored"

In the same vein... the "Beware of Doug" one isn't bad either...

And the all time favourite... *drumroll*... Tarzan swinging from vine to vine repeating his canned speech for Jane (very poetic), finally gets to Jane, says: "Me Tarzan, you Jane.". Final square, Tarzan thinking, "Damn."

Still cracks me up every time.

You guys have mentioned a lot of panels that I'd forgotton. After my original post, I remembered another of my absolute favorites:

Two cows are sitting on a couch. The phone is ringing. One says to the other: "And here we sit, without opposible thumbs."

In fact, any of the panels dealing with cows are toward the top of my list.

Two that I always found hilarious:

An alien housewife-a-zoid opens the door to let her alien dog-a-zoid in. Clutched in its snout is a little space capsule that says "USA". She recoils in horror and yells "Aaaaaaa! No, Zooky! Grok et bok! Shoosh! Shoosh!". Now, whenever the dog brings something unsavory into the house, that's what I say.

My other favorite: Acts of God. Four panels, each one showing God on stage juggling, or doing magic tricks, or loading himself into a cannon. I nearly choked to death when I read that the first time. Say, God would be awfully good at magic tricks, wouldn't he?

Hmmm.... so hard to choose favorites!!

One I like showed some lions or something behind a boulder, overlooking a herd of rectangular-bodied animals... the caption said something about "spamelopes" but I can't remember what

Another fave shows a moonlit hilltop, with a sheep and a wolf silhouetted against the moon, the wolf handing the sheep some flowers. The caption read (something like) "Inevitably their affair ended, [name??] worried excessively about what the pack would think, and Edna simply ate the flowers"

Another, cave people, the mother and two kids, the mother is stirring a HUGE cauldron, as tall as she is. Hanging out over the top you see a tusk and a trunk. THe kids are fighting, and the mom says "no Thag, it Wilga's turn lick bowl"

Oh I almost forgot....


you see a couple dramatically sprawled on the floor of their house, half off the couch, tongues hanging out, arms thrown out... walking out the door are another couple, looking back over their shoulders warily... THe caption reads .... dammit I can't remember the names ... "____ and _____ fiegn death until the Smiths (?), sensing the sudden awkwardness, decide to leave" or something like that. I've always suggested fiegning death as a way out of situations since then.

My favorite is the one that shows what cats and dogs are really thinking when their owners call their names. The dog owner's dog hears his own name followed by.......
The cloud over the cat was just ..........

Ok, maybe you'd have to love dogs to like that one!

I mentioned my favorite Far Side earlier, but it's really not. There are about 50 posted up on doors, walls, etc...all around my house. I love the "Larsonic" touch that Gary gives to cartoons. He's a reaaaaaaaaal revolutionary! I envy him.

But wouldn't you agree, there are so many great Far Side cartoons, that it'll make your head spin?

Email me, if you'd like to talk about Larson, Far Side, and that cartoon with the fish roller coaster(the caption reads: fish rides) upstatic@hotmail.com

(or any other cartoon)
