    nice, I do so miss Gary Larsen’s The Far Side®!

  2. Sammy says:

    Ha! Awesome, I love this guys stuff.

  3. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    Hiding Jesus from the evangelicals?

    Yea, verily!

    • Tim says:

      While I have not had that much experience with curtains that sport feet, I feel that there is not enough evidence in the image to show that would be the aforementioned missing messiah — It is implied, of course, but close examination of the sandals show them to be a his/her pair; It is my conclusion that the man behind the curtain is her husband.

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        Well Timmy—how does a pair of his/her sandals equate to husband status?

        Such a common curse===the intelligent reader to over think what is obvious even to yourself. Yes, “it is implied” as no other explanation makes sense…….

        ………unless you carefully review the room and see there is only ONE CUP. Could this all be a fantasy and the figure behind the drapes is but a repressed fantasy?

        There is more evidence for the latter than the former.

        I win……………..

        ……………because I posted first!!

        Repect my Author-ah-tey!!!!

        • Tim says:

          Well, there is a tell-tale bulge center left of the curtain which is similar to an impression that would be left by cup and plate — That, or he’s jacking it which goes to your *repressed fantasy* interpretation.

          I’m not sure Occum would apply, in this case, Unless it’s a brand of razor for people who hide others behind curtains and wish them not to make a scratching sound. Overthinking, indeed; Doe! I yeild!

  4. Tim says:

    It seems that Larsen had a problem with his work appearing in digital form —

    “”These cartoons are my “children,” of sorts, and like a parent, I’m concerned about where they go at night without telling me.

    and the blogger’s reply —

    “”The children have grown up. You don’t need to protect them any more. You can set them free and watch as they do wonderful things that make you proud.

    I wonder if such a control freak still feels that *imitation is the fondest of flattery* (or words to that effect) as seems to be the case with this comic.

    Oh, well; We’ll always have Garfield….

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      He thinks of digital dollar bills in his foreign bank accounts as “his children?”

      Typical!

      • Tim says:

        He’s Rich==Evil!!! Thy bastard!!! To think, I actually asked for one of his books for Christmas, once. To be fair, I also asked for and recieved Steven Colberts’ I Am America and So Can You…

        It’s hard to say which fucked up little timmy more.

        • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

          Denying the Lord as you have done above makes me think the Bible did its work first.

          ……..but we’d have to grab you by the ankles and shake to find out for sure.

  5. Captain Obvious says:

    You two idiots (tim and bobbo) would argue over what color the sky was and whether or not Obama was the devil or not.

    FYI: Obama is a LAWYER and a POLITICIAN which should give you some kind of clue as to just what he is. It’s not as if there’s really any difference between the pin-headed political party-poopers or any of the mind-washed Jesus junkies (or Allah-assholes or Buddha butt-brains, etc.).

    So please do the rest of us a favor and go find something else to do.

    Sorry to everyone else. I realize this request of our two current members of the “belief mob” is a bit moronic in and of itself. We already know bobbo “the BOOB” won’t go away since he/she is a long-winded moronic shut-in with access to mind altering drugs and a computer. But Tim? What’s your excuse? A cognitive birth defect or something? Analyzing and blogging over a cartoon?! Or maybe you’re simply unemployed with nothing better to do than sit there at your local McDonalds/Starbucks.

    For CHRIST’S SAKE! It’s a comic strip!

    … pun intended.

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      Do you know what ELSE is …… obvious?

      Ha, ha.

    • jpfitz says:

      How did we go from a funny cartoon to lambasting two commenters, then jump to the education of our sitting President?

      Captain Party pooper. Accept what -you- know is and you’ll be much more…

  6. deowll says:

    Two to one he doesn’t have the nerve to do one asking about Mohammad and if he did they would be afraid to print it.

    I’m no longer offended. I like free speech. It allows me to know about the kind of person someone is. Some people are worth knowing, others not so much.

  7. Yankinwaoz says:

    Hey! It’s LARSON, not LARSEN. With an “O”, not an “E”. Every single post has this wrong.

    Sincerely,
    Another LARSON.

    Fixed – Ed.

    • noname says:

      Silly Yankinwaoz, it has now been noticed by Larson® lawyers you alone are infringing on the exclusive rights of Larson® and The Far Side® registered trademark, by unauthorized use of Larson®!

      By following McCullough clever misspelling wisdom, DU bloggers have wisely avoided any legal liabilities! But no, your better then that!

      You may now expect a legal dispute and a Larson® cease and desist order!

      Good luck in court!

  8. deegee says:

    Funny, I didn’t know he was lost…

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      Not funny, he isn’t lost…..he’s HIDING.

      • Hmeyers says:

        I’ll give you 2 points for making a funny joke.

        Still, you are basically an asshole due to your narrow-mindedness.

        I could prove that, except that isn’t my responsibility.

        It is up to you to admit your own shortcomings and be honest with yourself and others … and it is the right thing to do.

        Be the stronger man and admit this about yourself, you will feel better and free!

        • bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

          Ha, ha. HMyers. What has your boat afloat….specifically?

          ALL OF US could be better people…hopefully, especially, if we set that as a personal goal?

          What do you think my goal should be?

          CERTAINLY—Jesus ain’t lost….but he ain’t here. What do I need to improve on in order to see that he isn’t hiding?

          GO!!!!!===================>
