Far Side Becomes Real has a bunch of very funny contests to alter photos based on themes. One of the best ideas was to create real-life Gary Larson cartoons. You're supposed to turn one of his Far Side cartoons into reality with photos. I think that's a great idea, and couldn't resist creating one of my own. If only the contest was still running...oh, well, enjoy.

For more real-life Far Side Cartoons, check out some more of's collection.

Update: I changed the cartoon to add some headphones and make the caption more cartoon-like.

Great job on the picture. That is one of my favorites.
Looking at the Worth1000 site I was surprised at how funny the jokes were even when they weren't cartoons. Just goes to show Larsen's genius. And that funny is funny.

Actually, I had the opposite reaction. I was struck by how some of them weren't as funny as the original cartoon. It made me think that it's not just the content that makes it funny. Larson also knew how to use angles and styles to make the joke funnier. But maybe that's just me.

What a blast from the past. I used to love his stuff. Used to have the books and everything.

What a great idea for a contest!
