Best "Far Side" cartoon ever?


Either the one with Dumbo turning rogue in his later years, terrorizing the airlines, or the one viewed from inside the pet store - with a pirahana in a goldfish bowl and the cat with two wooden legs. Runners up:

Polar bears eating an igloo: "I just love these things! Crunchy on the outside and a chewy center!"

Bears at abandoned car, one holding a hubcap to his ear: "I can hear the traffic!"

Dissenting opinions?

I like the poison arrow frogs that brought down the explorer wearing the pith helmet

Or the dog couple sitting on the porch swing. The male dog is spraying a can of "dog breath" in his mouth.

Being in the airline industry I've always been partial to the pilot asking the co-pilot, "What's that goat doing up in the clouds?"

Always loved the Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes, but I haven't checked out a comic strip for years...

Best ever (IMHO) was the roach family in their car, pulling up to a Roach Motel. Kid roach tells dad, "be sure and find out if they have cable."

In my opinion, Calvin and Hobbes, Far Side, and Dilbert may be the three smartest humor strips of the past 25 years.

I tried searching for some of the other favorites listed in this thread - Google doesn't seem to work wll with context searching.

Researcher in lab coat is waddling vacant-eyed and zombie-like behind a mother duck and her string of ducklings. Caption reads: "When imprinting studies go awry".

I like the one with the dog in the car, enthusiastically yelling to his dog friends out the window, about going to the vets to get tutored.

the one that had me ROLLING was the one of a view inside a pet store...

A big glass tank labled "PYTHON" was broken open...

The snake lay on the floor with a LARGE LUMP in its belly from a big meal...

The register sits unattended... Next to it on a stand is a parrot squawking "Rawwwk Get it Off of me Rawwwwk Get it off of me!"

Sadly, neither have I. What is wrong with us, Pete?

I used to buy the Far Side calendar every year, thus enjoying at least one new one each day.

Here's where I go to get my daily comic fix: http://comics.com/. Theye have a lot there, but unfortumately The Far Side isn't one of them. It's probably a Go Comics strip like Dilbert.
