    I have always loved "The Far Side" cartoons! My favorite one is a couple ducks at a bar and one is bandaged up... The other asks if he will tell his wife how he got shot? Heck no! First thing she will ask is why I was looking at another duck!

    I can't find a copy of that one... But I always figured Larson must have been a hunter and lived on a farm at one time? Always figured DU etc could raise money selling framed cartoons at banquets!

    2 deer hunters come across a deer "bed". The eldest tells the younger one how experience will one day help him learn what to look for. Never mind that the bed area has pic of the deers mom, a lamp, mattress and other such stuff.

    Pure genius! Larson was way ahead of his time. Hard to pick a favorite.
    He mastered the art of pointing out life's absurdities in a way that made you smile.

    I have to believe he was a hunter. Anyone know? His hunting-related comics were right on the money. A non-hunter would never be able to come up with that stuff.

    This could easily be changed to duck hunters.

    I do have a copy of his only book - as far as I know - called "there's a hair in my dirt". He published several book that were collections of cartoons, but this is the only complete story that I know of. Sort of an adult cartoon book about a family of worms. Very Macabre, very Larson.

    This is what I was thinking of. However, the spiders & slide one is likely my favorite ( how I forgot about that one earlier, I dont know....)
