The Far Side Is Back


Are you old like me and remember these things called newspapers? If you do , you may recall they had cartoons in them. One of those cartoons from the 1980s was called The Far Side. It was the best to ever run in any fishwrap ever. If you have never heard of it you are missing out. If you like our sense of humor here and you liked Kevin’s ( AKA, Hognose) then it’s a pretty good bet you will like The Far Side.

The creator of that cartoon strip, that was more like an anthology as there was no day to day story line, has put up a website and started publishing them online. Why is that a big deal? Because Gary Larson has never put his work online. Gary Larson did not want his work shared on line. Gary is very serious about no one other than Gary Larson using or sharing his work. Which is why you won’t be seeing me giving you any screen shots or cartoons I “right clicked, saved as”. Gary don’t play around.

If you remember it , take a look again, he updates it every day. If you never heard of it, go check it out. Give it a bit because the jokes are exactly like the title says.
