The Chickens Are Restless

1993, possibly first edition, from Andrews and McMeel
Gary Larson
The Chickens Are Restless
Original price $8.95, purchase price 49 cents
Worn paperback

Far Side doesn't seem so bizarre and twisted after reading John Callahan, but it's still pretty weird.  This collection doesn't have any of what I think of as the classic strips (like the neon warning of "DIDN'T WASH HANDS"), but it meets the minimum RDA of farm animals, dinosaurs, dogs, cats, humans, and mythological creatures, many in glasses.  There are more puns than I usually associate with Larson, none of which I'll spoil here.
