Hmmm....today's edition of Close to Home looks . . . somewhat familiar.

Why does God look like a lion?

shit's been going on long enough that he probably forgot that he's already done that joke.

>>77818180
bottom strip is a Far Side gag from the '80s
>>
>>77818224
Top is better.
>>
>>77818224
same logic probably still applies
>>
>>77818168
>>77818579
But the ANSWER is the question, what's provided is the clue.
Do you even jeopardy
>>
>>77818586
I mean yeah its the same joke but the farside one is more round about, long winded and full of unnecessary information.
>>
This is a fairly obvious joke, so it might be a coincidence.

>>77818168
THE SECOND COMIC DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A JOKE
>>
>>77818646
>I mean yeah its the same joke
The first comic is about how God knows everything, BUT he's being kind of an ass by not even letting the question come out of the host's mouth.

The second comic is just "God knows everything" without a single twist on the concept.

The joke is that the host is being kind of an ass by talking shit about Norman, like it's a big deal that he's losing badly to God.
>>
>>77818760
It's delivered less like a joke on the host being an ass and more like redundant spelling out of what's already on the image.

>>77818723
Considering Close to Home is heavily inspired by Farside, no. But all things art come from something.

>>77818168
Out of instinct I was looking for the hidden symbol.

>>77818168
How the hell did Wally manage to even buzz in to get an answer wrong? Are they saying Wally is faster than God?
>>
quick, what's your favorite Far Side?
>>
>>77819592
Wally answer was probably stupid and God just wanted to make people laugh.

Alright, I give up.

I hate millennials.
>>
>>77820564
Why does this warrant a picture?
>>
>>77820680
Because it's a comic.
>>
>>77820886
Yeah, why is it in a comic?
>>
>>77820891
Because Larson got paid to make comics for newspapers.

An "intercom" is the thing that let's pilots speak to all the passengers in the back. Note their expressions.
