BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

I'm Juz Sayin'

I don't believe in the concept of hell,
 but if I did I would think of it as filled with people
who were cruel to animals.
~Gary Larson

One of my favorite Far Side cartoons by Gary Larson:

(Sorry, Madi)

Do you have a favorite Far Side cartoon?


Kathy said...

You are so right, Buddy!
Nobody should be cruel to kids or pets, EVER!!!

We miss GL and wish he was still doing cartoons. He was a regular at the downtown Seattle BB court. Haven't heard what he is doing lately.

Our fave:


Madi and Mom said...

Oh Ms. K that is too funny. Madi and I are MOL and LOL. Madi and I believe if one cannot laugh at one's self then one is taking one's self way to seriously. Thanks for the laugh.

We agree with the quote too.

I LOVE the quote about hell very much! I believe hell is the perfect punishment for people who have no conscience about their cruelty to animals! Bravo for this post!

Love the quote. And I Believe IT too.
My mom's favorite one was the two flys driving a car with a sign in the window that said ...
Maggot on Board.

I agree with you Buddy! Isn't Gary Larson married to Jane Pauley? Anyone remember Jane Pauley?.....

Oh gosh that cartoon reminded me of what actually happened to a cat belonging to one of my neighbors... the cat had been napping in the dryer unbeknownst to the mom...... the story does not end well.... they were devastated and it was a mistake....

We have Farside BOOKS! Love Farside and miss seeing them. You just reminded me to go in search for them to give me another laugh. Thanks for making me smile today.

We so agree with that quote - how anyone can do what they do to some animals is so incomprehensible. Makes us more and more thankful for the home we have.

Love the cartoon....Kurtis has a "Far Side Collection" book and they are sooo funny :)

The Thundering Herd said...

Oh my, Gary Larson still cracks us up and we have seen every cartoon, we do believe. favorites? Hmmmm. The boneless chicken farm? The School for the Gifted (kid pushing on the door labeled pull)? What dogs hear (Blah Blah Blah Ginger Blah Blah)? The real reason dinosaurs became extinct (cigarettes)? The Jane Goodall chimp? They are all so classic.

Too right Buddy!..and they would be getting the same treatment(in hell)that they gave out to those poor defenseless animals.

I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE the Farside!!! It's hard to pick a favorite but one of them is where a dog is leaning out the car window saying to another something like "ha-ha Biff after we go to the drug-store and post-office I'm going to the vets to get tutored!"

It's a good quote--I'd heard once that Gary Larson considered a career working with the ASPCA after he'd accidentally hit a dog with his car...

We are going to have to agree!

Susan said...

When your post wasn't up at 6 AM , I was so disappointed! I could have used a laugh from Gary Larsen then. Of course, it was still a good laugh when I got in from work! And Buddy has certainly called it right!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Buddy is so right!! It's a very special part of hell too. Mom has a book of Gary Larson's cartoons and many that she cut out of the newspaper years ago. Lots of love, Debbie and Holly
