Wow, I just noticed he didn't just change the text but actually redrew everything.

Digital copy and paste wasn't really much of a thing in 1983.

FWIW he almost definitely traced it.

[-] DABDA@lemm.ee 29 points 2 weeks ago

Certainly there would have been methods available even then to either overlay changes (~cels) or exactly reproduce a base image (xerographic). I'm just impressed even using tracing he didn't just 1:1 reproduce the same scene, tiny variations exist (nose shape, left fist, V-neck shape etc.).

This was aligned against the dog:

My dad has had a coffee mug with this cartoon on it since before I was born

One of my favourites. I think about it whenever I see people talking to their dog.

It’s funnier when juxtaposed with the one about cats https://lemmynsfw.com/pictrs/image/0ce085ab-66a8-4cc7-b611-9cf36827de23.jpeg

Pretty sure she understands garbage too, so she hears "Ginger, garbage! Ginger, garbage!". She thinks it's encouragement to get into the garbage.

Nah, fae understands that he has a negative tone. Fae knows there's some kind of problem with faerself and the garbage.

Dogs are way more cognizant of body language and tone than most people realize. You can talk gibberish to them, but as long as you include their name (which they can recognize) and then use a positive, loving tone or a negative, aggressive tone, you can communicate nearly anything.

Hello fellow Far Side fans!

About this community and how I post the comic strip… Many moons ago, I would ask my Dad to save the newspaper for me everyday so I could read my favorite comic strips and one of those was The Far Side. These days of course you find just about anything online including wwwthefarside.com where they post several comics a day and I repost them here. Just to note, the date you see in my posts is not the initial release date, but the date they were posted on the website.

The Far Side is a single-panel comic created by Gary Larson and syndicated by Chronicle Features and then Universal Press Syndicate, which ran from December 31, 1979, to January 1, 1995 (when Larson retired as a cartoonist). Its surrealistic humor is often based on uncomfortable social situations, improbable events, an anthropomorphic view of the world, logical fallacies, impending bizarre disasters, (often twisted) references to proverbs, or the search for meaning in life… Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Far_Side

Hope you enjoy and feel free to contribute to the community with art, cool stuff about the author, tattoos, toys and anything else, as long it’s The Far Side!
