    It has been a while since I sat down and read any of Gary Larson's The Far Side. This comic strip used to be one of my favorites, as I love the one line zingers. I had never read any of the comic strips included in Cows of Our Planet in the newspapers, so these were all new to me. Although I found that I really enjoyed reading this book, I discovered that a lot of them weren't as funny as the ones Gary Larson created in his earlier years. Sure, some of them made me smile. Some of them made me laugh out loud, but not as many as in his previous books.There were a few strips I could have chosen from to show above, but the one I chose made me smile and then I started singing in my head. Yes, the comic strip refers to the classic movie, The Sound of Music, and the song by Julie Andrews, "My Favorite Things." As I am writing this review, I just had to put the song on to listen to it. I don't know who the guy was that will killed in the shown strip, but I'm sure he has some nice things.Cows of Our Planet contains a wonderful collection of comic strips from the warped and twisted mind of its creator. I can only heap praise upon Gary Larson for coming up with such a wonderful premise as The Far Side. It will always remain, in my mind, as one of the funniest comic strips to ever grace the pages of a newspaper. So, if you are looking for something entertaining to read, pick up a copy of Cows of Our Planet and be prepared for something that can turn your moooooood around.

    When I was working in any of the many bookstores where I was employed and I did not want (or have the time) to read my current book, I would grab one of these collections to read on my too short break. I slowly but surely worked my way through several series. These are great time killers and will usually improve your mood no matter how hectic the day. Laughter can be the best solution to dealing with the public.Some authors seem to have a fascination with certain places or things. Stephen King is drawn to cornfields, Michael Crichton to amusement parks(Westworld and Jurassic park were both amusement parks that go wrong), and Gary Larson is pulled towards the obvious humor of the cow.

    Having recently read a bit of Shaun Tan, some of the cartoons reminded me of him.This is American, obviously, and there are a couple of frames that I just don't get no matter how long I look at them. This volume contains quite a few spoofs on cowboy movie tropes as well as lots of new interpretations of English idioms using lesser known animals and a running gag between a couple of guys stranded on a desert island. My favourite is the roomful of middle-aged unlikely looking karate players who look out the window and see an alien ship land in main street. Now is the chance for them to put their newfound skills to practical use AND save the entire town...

    I personally thought that this was Gary Larson's best books ever. As I am writing this review I have the book sitting next to me and every once in a while I will read a comic and every single one of them were hilarious. The best are Larson's weird, amazing, and of course funny cows of our planet. such as the Tennessee big butt, the Polynesian puffer cow, and the Norwegian one-eyed smiler. Not including 20 other weird, amazing, and funny cows of our planet.

    Another fantastic slice of Larson's universe, this was published in 1992 and doesn't really focus on cows (though there is an amusing colour foldout in the centre). Always amusing, the top panels for me were the devils laughing at the suggestions, "Henry never knew what hit him" and the karate class witnessing a close encounter. Great stuff, highly recommended.

    Unlike many of Larson's earlier Far Side cartoons, almost every one of these were lame or blah. only three or four were clever or funny, which is not enough to redeem a book of insipid, uninspired cartoons. This is where someone who is paid to churn out stuff day after day loses that creative spark. Oh well. Luckily I did not waste much money on the book.

    I really liked this book. I have not read any other of the Far Side collection books, but I plan to if they are anything like this one. I laughed at every turn. I recommend this book to anyone who has a good sense of humor.

    I think Larson is terribly funny. Yeah, every science lab or office in the US probably had at least one (often many) Far Side cartoons up on the door or walls back then. Now, I expect it's mostly XKCD. Sick geeky humor, I'm so there.

    Hazel picked this book, while I was looking for the doll clothes. "Look! It is full of pictures! Pictures of cows!"I am raising a nerd.

    What can I say? Is there a bad Far Side book? Read them and laugh.

    Some of the most imaginative humour out there, if you can handle comics that have some of the flattest punchlines in existence. The humour can be dry, dull, boring, but it is always hilarious.

    Just as good as the others. None of them in particular stand out in my memory.

    Standard Far Side fare: some really funny, some I didn't get at all.

    A collection of classic Larson cartoons. Not all cows - don't let the title fool you!

    First half is better than the second. At any rate, it does have the Dogs Who Say Hey. :)

    Funny, even if some of the jokes are a tad bit dated now (especially the references to late '80s/early '90s coffee culture.)

    Its Far Side Comics. You either like em or you dont. Not a huge variance in quality between them.
