Far Side Comics

In this classic Far Side comic, a herd of cows are crammed into an elevator. One cow says “I’m not a big fan of elevators” while another replies “Well, look at it this way…at least they’re not stairs!” The absurdity of cows using an elevator is hilarious. It plays with the stereotype of cows as not being the most intelligent of animals. The cow’s comment adds another layer of humor by anthropomorphizing the cows.

20 Top Funny Far Side Comics





















The Evolution of the Chicken

This comic imagines what various stages of the chicken’s evolution might have looked like. It shows increasingly more evolved versions of the chicken from a tiny feathered creature to a fully formed chicken. However, each version is still clucking and pecking around as if it thinks it’s still a chicken. The joke is that evolution advanced the chicken physically but not mentally – it’s still just a chicken at heart no matter the body type. A clever take on evolution. Dogs Playing Poker

In a nod to the classic painting “Dogs Playing Poker”, this Far Side comic depicts a game between various canine breeds. However, the dogs are not actually playing poker – one is lying on the floor with cards on its belly thinking it’s playing, another is chewing on a chair leg, etc. It subverts the expectations of what the scene from the painting should look like in a silly way. Dogs acting like well, dogs rather than upstanding poker players is amusing.

The Coffee Shop of No Return

This comic takes place in a coffee shop where the customers are all animals that are now extinct. Signs advertise “Dodo Nuggets” and “Thylacine Turnovers”. A couple of wooly mammoths are chatting at a table. The joke is that even extinct creatures still want their coffee! Seeing prehistoric animals in a modern setting is absurd but funny. It plays with the concept of what extinct animals might be doing now if they were still around.


Gary Larson created one of the most beloved and best-selling comic strips of all time with The Far Side. Even decades after its end, Larson’s bizarre yet hilarious take on everyday life and observations continue to resonate and make readers laugh out loud. Whether playing with absurd scenarios or crafting sharp observational wit, The Far Side comics showcase a truly brilliant comedic mind at work. Larson’s legacy as one of the greatest humor cartoonists will surely endure for generations to come.
