Okay, so my next assignment in gettin’ funny is to gather together my favorite cartoons and captions. Here’s the first and it’s a doozy by that master of masters, Gary Larson of The Far Side (farside.com).
The obese cartoon kid puts everything he has into pushing the door open—underneath a big “PULL” sign. Showing somebody pushing on a door clearly marked Pull is funny in and of itself, but even more funny when the caption points out that this is a genius kid attending the Midvale School for the Gifted.
More than being amusing, this cartoon teaches a lesson. Why, every time I pull a Push door or push a Pull door I take a moment to reflect that I, too, am a genius and shan’t be bothered by things that require nary a common thought.
