Cow Tools movie when?
>>
>>64667445
Hello this is Gary Larson, please do not post images of Farside comics on the internet.
>>
What did he mean by this?
>>
Hello, this is Bill Watterson, please do not make fanart of Calvin & Hobbes
>>
>>64667595
Literally the only time this meme has been used correctly
>>
It's a joke just poking fun at how crude tools would be if cows were capable of making them. Gary regrets not making this more clear.
>>
>>64667595
It's supposed to be a joke about how certain species make crude tools, and if a cow made tools, they'd probably look ridiculous, such as those you see pictured.
>>
>>64667678

The thing that makes people confused is the saw. They see the saw and look at the other ones thinking "What the fuck are these other tools supposed to be?"

Take out the saw and it makes it significantly less confusing.

too patrician for the public desu
>>
>>64667445
It's funny how the artist just wanted to make a simple joke about cows being shitty at making tools and people considering it to be mega deep. I think this comic is a good metaphor for arthouse movie fans
>>

>>64667814
The joke is literally "Look how crude cow tools would be."

It's a pretty dumb comic, which is why he regrets it.

It's the infamous image that drew many people mad over not understand what the fuck. Author said he thinks cows are just inherently funny or something. Basically he drawn something that he alone finds funny, this happens.
>>
>>64667445

I still find it amazing how he was the one to coin the term for the tail spikes of a Stegosaur.
>>
>>64667879
It also pretty much exposes arthouse fans for liking arthouse soley because they don't fucking get it. It's hilarious.

Cow pies is slang for cow shit. So cow tools are tools made out of cow shit. Cows make shitty tools.

Look behind the guy on the left. That is one big warning light.

The light. It's big. Heh?

I don't get it either. Maybe the joke is that there a so many warning lights on an aircraft they only care about the biggest one and not the little ones?

Big light = bigger problem

i dunno, i think that thing to the left is the giant warning light.

i think the joke is literally just that a giant warning light is on.

What I can gather is it's a caveman and a caveman would more than likely have a meatbowl rather than a fruitbowl.

Do you not understand that Far Side comics are one panel? How do you suppose you're going to read the text and NOT see the image at the same time?

You're not making sense.

Man, the Far Side is amazing. I actually recall when my mind developed as a kid based on those comic books. I'd been reading Garfield and laughing my ass off but when I read Far Side, NOTHING was funny so I didn't read much of it. Fast forward 1 year and I read it again and nearly everything was funny. It was a monumental change in how I looked at the world. I ended up owning every book up to the mid 1990s or thereabouts.

I was like 5 at the time I think.

I find that people who find these comics funny are people who have wicked sarcasm type humor socially.

I owned every far side book , the best one is the one where he writes an autobiography for himself at the start, and he gives comics he drew as a child which basically just imply he is being horribly abused. I'll see if I can find them.
