Perhaps one of the more funny compilations of comics by Gary Larson. Well worth the buy and the read.
As I have said, you must see this gag. Now Gary Larson is a funny man, but this joke is an absolute side-splitter. I guarantee you'll look over the sketch and you won't 'get it' at first, then it dawns on you just how funny it is. Every time you think of it you'll laugh, or at least smile. Oh no, there's also the 'plumber' joke, WARNING: Do not read these gags back-to-back.
