People have referred to me as a "cartoon psychic". At least I think they have. I often know what a comedian is thinking.
So, of all the excellent Far Side cartoons I've seen as a young man, my mind always circles around the cartoon "Beware of Doug". I used to think that the genius of the Far Side is that cartoon characters have exceptionally wide eyes and therefore long reaction shots.
But I've recently read that Gary Larson credited growing up with a cruel older brother for his "paranoid sense of humour". Just because a cartoon is funny doesn't mean it's not telling you something...
