I first was a B Kliban fan and later a Larson fan. Both have very similar twisted humor, like mine.

The one I remember most has the caption something like "veterinary students usually breeze through the horse section". In the cartoon it shows a student sitting at a desk with a textbook open and on one side of the page it has symptoms and the other side treatment. Every treatment says "Shoot".

Me too, I had one of those tear-away calendar pads at my work desk back in the 90's. Love Larson.

So many to choose from, but when I think of his work, this is always the first one to come to mind

The 2024 Far Side daily calendar is now available. (It’s a revised edition of the 1996 calendar.) The 2023 is still out there, too. (Revised version of 1995.)

. . .A much less expensive way to get a Far Side fix than buying all those books — again. I am thinking about ordering because a hardcopy quick fix on my desk could deter me from going down that online rabbit hole.

For those of us with a certain bent to our sense of humor, nobody gets us better than Gary Larson.

not sure how to add an image, hope this works. But my favorite Far Side was Aice Cramden being found dead on the moon.

There is a similar one to this about 2 golfers getting ready to putt. In the background is a mushroom cloud. One says to the other, "go ahead and putt the shock wave won't get here for about 5 minutes".
