My favorite is where the sheep are having a party and "Henry Our party's a total chaos! No one knows when to eat, where to stand, what to...Oh thank goodness here comes a border collie.

HUGE fan. I still have a book of them, maybe two. Evolution of the stick man, metamorphosis, so many. I loved the science ones.

Funny enough doesn't even begin to describe it.

People who say no to this are science deniers or don't understand irony, or both.

A quick google search shows the comic strip ran from 1980-1995. You expect millennials to know about everything from 20+ years ago?

A whole 20 years?!? That would indeed require more effort than most are willing to put in.

Then again, I'm biased. I'm aware of cultural icons - including comic strips - that date back far further than that.

I'm familiar with the best comic strip of the era, that of course being Calvin and Hobbes. After that, I could take em or leave em.

And I would never in a million years confuse a newspaper comic strip as a "cultural icon". Lol.

I wasn't trying to sound elitist (but it came off that way). The Far sSide is a cultural icon from that era, and from what I've seen of you on here, Laser, you'd love it. Check it out.
