I just had a series of good laughs and am glad I found this Gary Larsen classic waiting for me under the tree this morning. The collection covers a number of familiar Larsen themes. Chickens, of course. And cows, road kill, the Old West, cave men, aliens and hell. The man has range.
Captions from some of my favorites are listed below. You are left to imagine the Larsonian twist in each cartoon.
- Slow Cheetahs Anonymous
- The Living Hell of Maurice, Jacques Cousteau's cat
- Scene from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Ed
- The ever-popular Donner Party snow dome
- Moses parting his hair
- Octopus obedience school
- Failed marketing ploys
The classics never age and this book is as funny today as it was in 1993. It is recommended for a run of good laughs and to pass around at the office.

Wierd, wonderful, strange, funny, quirky, wild, zany, crazy, bizarre........ In other words a Far Side book! A pint size book revolving mostly around chickens and several other animals. If you must try this book(or indeed, any Far Side book)don't try it in public!
