No such luck.
Not even close.
The similarities to Larson's strip are pretty striking, except without the same soul as the Far Side.
I'm 18 days into the new year and I've probably only had two or three chuckles. And I'm a sucker for a gag--I'll laugh at just about anything.
Oh well, I'll keep tearing the pages off every day, just in case.
I think the problem with the Argyle Sweater is the creator just puts different ideas together that normally wouldn't make sense, and expects them to be funny for that reason alone. There's no irony in doing this... and no humor. One cartoon had an airplane crashing down onto Easter Island, with the words "Head-On, apply directly to the head" on the fuselage. One of the statues (all of them had cracks in their heads) had a speech bubble saying to the others that he'd been waiting for this and it's bound to work after all these years (or something to that effect). Not funny to me. Doesn't even make sense to me... I understand the product, and the large heads on Easter Island. It just doesn't make me laugh. They've all been a Far Cry from the Far Side classics like Midvale School for the Gifted, How Birds See the World, or any of the scenes in Hell.
I'm sorry to say it, but I think I would have been happier with a Dilbert calendar this year.
Love the humor that makes a person think a bit, the jokes are off the wall but not too disgusting.
I agree, great to have this desk calendar for work to start your day off with a smile!

One of my co-workers had the 2010 calendar and it always made me laugh, so I bought the 2011 with the expectation that it wouldn't be able to live up to the prior year's version. Read morePublished on December 15, 2011 by Remy'sMom

Its striking how similar the art work is between this and the Far Side. That's where the similarities end. Simply put, these jokes are not funny. Read morePublished on February 5, 2011 by 6
