Favorite Larson Cartoons

Recommended Posts

Buddy of mine in the USN got a propeller tattooed on each butt cheek. It did not go over well with his wife either.

R. Lee Ermey claims to have a set of lips tattooed on his butt cheek. I doubt anyone has ever asked to see them.

Is that like the old Looney Toons cartoon character, Tweety bird, when he says, "I taught a taw a puddy tat"!

I just discovered that the spiky end of the Stegosaur's tail is indeed called "the thagomizer".  It had no name until this Larson cartoon!  My grandson and I are watching a BBC series "Planet Dinosaur" and I heard John Hurt's narration where he is talking about the tail (I miss John Hurt).  Thagomizer???!!!  Yes, at least according to Wikipedia!

If we are meandering, this was my favourite Herman.

Big Herman fan here, along with Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes and The Lockhorns.  I'll see if I can find a few favorites that are still taped up at home. . .

How can anyone possibly pick just one Far Side as their favourite? :lol:

He was the best.

I always laugh at ALL of them - no matter how many times I've seen them.

That was my point.

Fine. Be like that. The thread needed to wander, it was getting stale. You're lucky I didn't start posting recipes for roadkill.

I can remembering interviewing in different places when I was fresh out of college.  I kept my eye open for this one.  If I saw several cubicles with this (b&w version in those days) taped to the wall, I reconsidered working there. . .

Slightly out of season, but this one graces the front of some of my holiday cards...  Amuses some, offends others.  So what?

My mom had one framed - pretty sure it was the same cartoonist.

I don't have it to post but I remember the caption. It was a cat sitting on a stool playing the guitar and singing;

"Love to eat them mousies

Mousies what I love to eat

Bite they little heads off

Nibble on they tiny feet"

 

Offensive enough?

EDIT: Found it.
