Cows of Our Planet
|von Gary Larson|
I'm not sure how Gary Larson continues to write consistently funny books. But, I'm not going to complain. This book has a laugh on every page. Once again there are the hilarious human and animal characters that make up Larson's wacky world. In addition, there is a centerfold of cows of our planet. It is definitely a worthy addition to the Far Side collection. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a good laugh in their life.
Humor at its best
As with all of the other Far Side collections, Gary Larson brilliantly incorporates his sense of witty humor into his cartoons about life, ranging from cavemen to scientists to cows. There is something for everyone in this book, and I guarantee there will be a few cartoons that you will be tempted to photocopy and post on the bulletin board or fridge door. I am continually amazed at how Larson can make a one-panel cartoon so funny, while other cartoonists can write eight panel cartoons that don't even come near my funny bone. "Cows of Our Planet" striked it right away.
If at any time in your life you feel a little down, stressed, or tired, and need a few laughs -- crack open a Far Side collection like this one and you'll be chuckling in no time. For added humor, check out the colored insert of different 'cows of our planet' from which the collection gets its name. You'll be paying closer attention to the cows grazing in the pasture the next time you drive out into the country :)
