The wolves on the edge of the forest looking at their buddy by the cavemen's campfire.That was a great one too!
Something like " it's Bob but look at those vacuous eyes and that stupid grin on his face. He's been domesticated I tell you. "
I've been thinking about Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes. Two really different approaches to humour and yet quite similar in some ways.
Calvin's wild flights of imagination took the strip in the Far Side direction. While Larsen didn't focus on a main character the reappearance of types of characters, cows and wolves come to mind, gave it a Calvin and Hobbes kind of continuity.
Great, great stuff in both strips and Watterson and Larsen were undoubtedly the comic strip geniuses of their time. YMMV and you could be right. Humor is really so bizarre and can be so individualistic.
