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.
I...I still don't get it. Am I retarded? If that's the joke it's not funny. It's not even remotely funny.
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
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.
Oh my god stop, please. I can't take it anymore. It's so fucking unfunny it hurts. I'm cringing imagining people laughing at this.
Search up some Farside comics and try not to burst a blood vessel laughing. I dare you.
Man I haven't thought about Far Side in years. I found that 10th Anniversary book as a kid and read it a million times. Never really developed an interest in other cartoons though
>pretending that any of the post 1952 Peanuts with Snoopy is good, at all
post rare Gary Larsons
Kinda redundant, now that I think about it.
>I think the joke is that they're mistaking the Sun for a warning light, but god I don't know I think I just had a brain aneurysm.
Look behind the guy on the left. That is one big warning light.
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
What did he mean by this?
What I can gather is it's a caveman and a caveman would more than likely have a meatbowl rather than a fruitbowl.
How spot on am I?
dont expect /tv/ to understand larson's work.
/tv/ doesn't read.
ask them about starship troopers/bladerunner/scanner darkly/jurassic park/american psycho novelizations.
niggas wont be able to tell you jack shit aside from MUH CGI MUH VISUALS
I take it you've read every single one of them?
Didn't think so. You've just decided none of them are based on a sample, and nobody will ever be able to convince you otherwise. You must be really fun at parties.
I'm just here to read some classic Larsen.
I wouldn't expect the teenagers that make up this board to understand anything with abstract comedy. They think quips and meme lines in expensive movies are the only form of comedic expression
>But wouldn't it be funnier if we first read the text and then see that bee is large?
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.
But it's a legitimate concern. He's not even wearing hard helmet. OSHA would be all over the kids' ass if they knew.
Just look at the size of the fucking anvils. Those tiny stems don't bode well for the kid at all.
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.

>dog bounces like 3 feet backwards
Funniest damn thing ever.
We have the exact same book. I spent the past 15 minutes looking for it and I can't find it anywhere.
It was one of the last things me and my dad got to do together before he passed away, read those comics and laugh out asses off.
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.
I find the Far Side mostly hilarious, but it's a matter of taste.
For something truly confusing, read Heathcliff.
My favorite Heathcliff is the one where either the pizza delivery guy or the mailman has to hang glide to the house to make the delivery safely. It genuinely cracked my shit up, but I didn't save it.
