The true curmudgeon’s meaning of Farside cartoons.

I laugh out loud (LOL!) at almost every Farside cartoon. While a few are very difficult to interpret, most seem pretty obvious, and therein lies the danger. What if Gary Larson is really mocking you, the audience? What if the ones that seem obviously funny really harbor a darker meaning, and are mocking something, or someone, other than what seems obvious? I invite you to take this “hidden mockery” exam. What is each cartoon REALLY mocking?

Mocking: A___ cats’ attitude B___ preachers who claim “God told me” C___ President Trump D___ lamestream media
Mocking: A___ Casual attitude of surgeons B___ socialized medicine C___ high fat carnivorous diet D___ Vegan diet with too much kale
Mocking: A___ Native American lingo B___ the idea of talking bears C___ hunters that allow bears to sneak up on them D___ gun owners thinking that bears care about caliber.
Mocking: A___ Chinese wildlife markets B___ dogs’ who eat their own vomit C___ Whole Foods and other trendy markets D___ lack of social distancing
Mocking: A___ Joe Biden B___ teenage boys C___ dogs who think they’re people D___breath freshener commercials
Mocking: A___ gays B___ cowboys C___ dreams of flying D___ old men with nothing better to do than diss gays

I could do this all day, but hey, why don’t you and your quarantine-mates make up your own game based on my idea? Could be fun!
