    Yay. Our cats food is still referred to as Cat Fud after his cartoon.

    This pleases me greatly.

    Isn’t everyone’s.:-)

    I’ve searched for but not been able to find my favourite ever, the one with the chicken riding a horse into to town and the townsfolk knowing something’s wrong because the chicken and horse belong to different people.

    So many favs but one I remember especially was a couple of sharks feeding from a sinking boat carrying mannequins and saying ….”what sort of cruel hoax is this”

    Like he Cat Fud thing, I still use “Cruel Hoax” often in daily life.

    Literally the first image that comes up when you google: Gary Larson chicken horse

    My favourite Gary larson fact is that, after he published this cartoon …

    The term thagomiser has been  adopted as an anatomical term by paleontologists

    We almost had a live version of the Lost Puppy cartoon when my Mum nearly sat on our dog. Kids thought it was cruel me laughing at her sitting on the dog. I had to wait for Mum to go home so I could show them the reason I was laughing was that life was imitating art.

    I like that the Jane Goodall Institute thought his “Jane Goodall tramp” cartoon was offensive but she loved it.

    I have all his books though haven’t read any for a few years. That’s only because they are so brilliant I knew them all almost off by heart.

    If I had to pick out one though it would be the two way switch an the aircraft seat arm rest marked Wings Stay On and Wings Fall Off.

    Very happy. Still have one of his books stowed away from years ago and love finding it every few years and losing an hour in it.

    “While their owners sleep, nervous little dogs start their day”

    This was funny because had a nervous little dog.

    This nes up there for me, mainly based on what I read from Gary about the number of letters he got pointing out polar bears don’t live in the same place as penguins!

    And now Edgars gone

    I liked the irony that the duplicate thread that was started for this topic was called “Midvale School for the Gifted”.
